What Hot Dogs are Healthy?
This is always a hard question to answer because we're talking about hot dogs. Is there truly a healthy option out there? If you have ever seen a picture of the batter of hot dogs, you know there is nothing 'natural' about them. They are made from the emulsified trimmings of pork, beef, and chicken, and then combined with seasonings to get what we know is the hot dog.
Granted, some companies have better practices for making a hot dog healthier than others.
According to the Trim Healthy Mama food analyzer, hot dogs are on plan but they need to be kept at 2 carbs or less per serving.
Pigs in a Blanket or Wrapped Hot Dog?
For our purposes, these wrapped hot dogs are also known by a number of other names. Similar recipes include "Keto Pigs in a Blanket" or "Low-carb Wrapped Hot Dogs".
If you are looking for an alternative version of this recipe that does not use a Trim Healthy Mama product, you can check out my Air Fryer Pigs in a Blanket. They are time-consuming to make but very tasty in the end.
I personally use Hebrew National Hot dogs. They have exactly 2 carbs and no added sugar. The ingredient list is pure (in my opinion) and their practices are safe.

How to Wrap Hot Dogs
Wrapping the hot dogs is the trickiest part of this recipe. Once you get the dough spread out on a baking sheet lined with parchment and lightly sprayed, you will want to cut the dough into 16 triangle pieces. You can use the picture below as a guide.
Starting at the long edge of the hot dog, you will roll the hot dog to the top of the triangle. Place the wrapped hot dogs on another baking pan lined with parchment paper. I like to spray my parchment paper lightly with coconut spray.
Tips for Making these Wrapped Hot Dogs
Make sure you are following the directions for the No Carb Easy Bread up until the point of placing the dough into the standard bread pan.
I have had the best luck with making the dough by using the hand-whisk method. I know others are completely committed to using a blender.
Spread the dough to about ¼-1/8 inch thick on your parchment paper with a rubber spatula. You may have to experiment with this a bit to find the method that works best for you.
Make sure your oven is preheated before you put your wrapped hot dogs in.
Ingredients for my Wrapped Hot Dogs
1 package of No Carb Easy Bread
2 packages of Hot Dogs (I like Hebrew National)
1 ⅓ cup egg whites
¾ cup water
2 tbsp everything bagel seasoning
Instructions for my Wrapped Hot Dogs
Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Lightly spray each with coconut spray.
Make the dough according to packaged directions. Stop at the point of putting the dough into a standard baking dish.
Spread the dough out evenly on the baking sheet. A rubber spatula seems like the best tool to use. The dough should be ⅛-1/4 inch thick.
Using a sharp knife score the dough into 16 triangle sections.
Starting at the long edge of the triangle wrap the hot dough.
Wrap the remaining hot dogs. Place the hot dogs on the other sprayed parchment paper baking sheet.
Sprinkle the hot dogs with everything bagel seasoning.
Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Baking times vary. For the last 1-2 minutes you can broil if you like your dough slightly crispy.
