Healthy Bagel dogs

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- healthier bagel dogs, 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.

Creating Healthier Bagel Dogs

There are ultimately two components to bagel dogs – the bagel and the dog. I know, we’re getting complex. Stay with me. Typically, the outside of a pig in a blanket is a crescent roll, which is delicious. However, it’s also loaded with fat and calories that we’re trying to avoid while still enjoying big flavor. So, the outside gets swapped for two-ingredient dough. More on that later.

Next, the inside. A regular ballpark frank runs you 6 WW SP on blue. Yikes. For something that’s not super filling (I could legitimately eat 5 and still have room for dessert), that’s not great. Meanwhile, uncured turkey hot dogs, like these, are just 1 SP, so you can enjoy a few.

Lighter outside, lighter inside, lighter end result. To make them, simply make your dough, dry your hot dogs (a weird but necessary step), wrap, egg-wash, season, bake. I top mine with a healthy dose of everything bagel seasoning because it makes everything better.

What is two ingredient dough?

In short: magic. The two ingredients are self-rising flour and and nonfat Greek yogurt. When combined, you can make just about anything – from bagels to biscuits to desserts. If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can also make your own. Combine 1 cup of all purpose flour with 1.5 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp of salt. Voila!

Serving

These are best served with a light beer (we’re keeping points low, ok?) and some loved ones around. Also, ketchup. Also, honey mustard. You can also make these mini (cute!) if you’re looking to feed a crowd and don’t want full-sized bagel dogs. Any way you serve it, these are sure to be a hit.

Equipment

  • Mixing Bowls
  • Baking Sheet
  • Oven

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pack of 6 hot dogs can use any, but turkey/chicken will generally be leaner and are my personal preference
  • 1 cup Nonfat 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

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 385F
  • 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.
  • Remove hot dogs from package, thoroughly pat dry with paper towels. This will help the dough stick!
  • Turn your dough onto a lightly floured surface, divide into 6 even pieces
  • 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
  • Wrap the dough around each individual hot dog, and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (or use a baking mat)
  • Brush all of the wrapped dogs (bagel part only) with egg wash, and sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until tops are golden brown
  • Let cool and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce!
