Pigs in a Blanket/Weiner Dogs
I love hot dogs any way I can get them! Now keep your mind out of the gutter please! I am talking about dogs, weiners, hot dogs, frankfurters, kielbasa, polish dogs, chili dogs, foot longs, coney dogs, bagel dogs, corn dogs, and cheesy dogs!
Are ya feeling me here? I have been trying to figure out how to make low fat corn dogs to no avail, so I decided to try to make some Weiner Dogs or Pigs in a Blanket using Kosher Low Fat Dogs. I actually made them twice in one week.
The first time I used my recipe for White Dinner Rolls, and the second time I used Rhodes Frozen Rolls. I have to say the Rhodes Rolls worked just as well with a lot less effort and they tasted practically the same.
1 package of the regular sized Rhodes Frozen White Rolls
1 package of Hebrew National low fat or reduced fat hot dogs
Black Sesame Seeds (optional)
1 tbl butter melted
One roll will cover 1/2 of a hot dog, so remove as many rolls as you need for the number of dogs you want to have.
Place rolls on a sheet pan and place in your oven with the light on and the door closed, let them proof for several hours until doubled in size
Cut your hot dogs in half and place on a plate
Remove your rolls, and roll each one into a rope about 8 inches long and starting at the bottom wrap around your hot dog trying to fully cover the dog. If you choose to use sesame seeds, brush with melted butter and sprinkle on before baking
Repeat until you have used up all your dogs and rolls, place back onto the sheet pan and into the over for another several hours until they rise.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, remove when golden brown and brush with butter
