A homemade wheat dough makes these "pigs in a blanket" stand out from all other varieties. They go great with a cup of soup or are a nice snack by themselves.


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 8 slices process American cheese
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 8 hot dogs


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add whole wheat flour, brown sugar, salt and vanilla; beat until smooth. Add enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead for 6-8 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Roll into a 20x14-in. rectangle; cut into eight 7x5-in. pieces. On each piece of dough, place a slice of cheese, 1 teaspoon ketchup and a hot dog. Fold edges of dough over and press tightly to seal. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
