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

I am telling you I love those Rhoades Dinner Rolls and love this idea. I still have Rhoades in the freezer from Thanksgiving so I'll be giving this a try.

This is a perfect new years eve dish!

I am loving the look and the idea (personally, garlic and sea salt on the top so it toasts as it browns is a change I would consider... but that's personal taste)

Well Done Post

Yum! I love hot dogs too. Over the summer my husband discovered our local butcher sold gourmet hot dogs - holy cow they were the best hotdogs we've ever had - but pricey - almost $2 each!

So we were on a hot dog kick for a while, we grilled them, boiled them in beer - but the best?? Deep fat fried!

You can never go wrong with using pre-made bread dough, it works great. Of course you can never go wrong with a good pig in a blanket...

Wow! I am a total hot dog fiend. Drives my hubby crazy. I will definitely be trying these. I have made them with crescent rolls, but these look more glam!

Hot dogs are great anytime. I've never heard of those rolls before. Maybe we don't have them down here? They look delicious!
