Pigs in a Blanket with Homemade Dough Recipe

Publisher Photo
Pigs in a Blanket were a natural choice for serving at my farm animal them meal. I filled the hot dogs with cheese and wrapped them in a light dough to make them special. They are tasty, fun and handy to eat.

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 15 min.
MAKES: 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 teaspoon sugar, divided
  • 2/3 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons shortening, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 10 hot dogs
  • 2 slices process American cheese

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in milk and water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the egg, shortening, salt, remaining sugar and enough flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Cut a 1/4-in.-deep lengthwise slit in each hot dog. Cut cheese slices into five strips; place one strip in a slit of each hot dog.
  4. Punch dough down; divide into 10 portions. Roll each into a 5-in. x 2-1/2-in. rectangle and wrap around prepared hot dogs; pinch seam and ends to seal.
  5. Place seam side down on greased baking sheets; let rise for 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 10 servings.

Loved this recipe. I made the dough on the dough cycle of my bread machine. Delicious bread, much better than store-bought hot dog buns!

A brilliant recipe, especially if you are used to eat the store bought pre made pigs in a blanked. The recipe is extremely easy but wonderfully tasty and exiting! It's like a pre-made hot-dog in a bun!!!!!!
