One of my all-time favorite foods is pigs in a blanket. I love the combo of a smoky hot dog with a soft outer layer. Sadly, they’re not the healthiest, or the most filling. Behold- the healthier bagel dog, which is higher protein thanks to magical two ingredient dough, lower in fat/calories, and just as delicious. You can whip these up with just a few ingredients and they store well in the fridge if you’re looking to eat them throughout the week. These are also perfect to bring to a summer gathering, and odds are, nobody will know they’re sneaky healthy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pack of 6 hot dogs (can use any, but turkey/chicken will generally be leaner and are my personal preference)
  • 1 cup 0% Greek Yogurt (I prefer Fage)
  • 1 cup self rising flour (King Arthur makes a great one, or sift together 1 cup of all purpose flour with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt)
  • 1 egg, beaten, for egg wash
  • Everything bagel seasoning

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 385F
  2. Combine greek yogurt and self rising flour in a bowl and mix until you have a uniform dough. A KitchenAid mixer with bread-hook is super helpful here, but it can be done by hand. Dough will be sticky.
  3. Remove hot dogs from package, thoroughly pat dry with paper towels. This will help the dough stick!
  4. Turn your dough onto a lightly floured surface, divide into 6 even pieces
  5. Flour your surface/hands so that you can shape the dough. Roll it into a long string, about 1/2 inch thick and about a foot long
  6. Wrap the dough around each individual hot dog, and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (or use a baking mat)
  7. Brush all of the wrapped dogs (bagel part only) with egg wash, and sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until tops are golden brown
  9. Let cool and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce!
