Low-Carb Pig in a Blanket

By Gabby

This can be a great breakfast idea. Make them ahead and pop them in the microwave for a quick breakfast on the go. I like them for dinner, too. They have an unexpected sweet taste. Enjoy!

Low-Carb Pig in a Blanket
  • 8 hot dogs (chicken or turkey)

  • 8 eggs

  • Cooking spray

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. Place the wieners on a broiler sheet and cook for about 15 minutes or until they are cooked the way you like them. (I like a little brown crust on mine.)

  3. While your wieners are cooking, spray a small skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium heat.

  4. Crack one egg into a small bowl and whisk until blended. Pour egg in hot skillet and gently roll pan to create a thin layer of egg.

  5. Cook until just a thin layer on top is uncooked and flip, finishing the cooking for about 30 seconds to a minute.

  6. Remove egg from the pan and allow to cool on a wire rack.

  7. Repeat the process with each egg, making one egg blanket for each wiener.

  8. When all the blankets are done, place one wiener on each and roll up using a toothpick to hold it together.

  9. Serve with your favorite condiments (which are not included in the nutrition facts).

Pig in a blanket to me is ground pork rolled in cabbage and cooked in tomato sauce. I will try your recipe but eliminate the egg routine. I will fry the hot dogs and cut them into 1/4 inch pieces and add them to a souse pan with the eggs.

I did them with Angus Beef dogs today and does lower the carbs a good bit.

This sounds very interesting!
Do you use a non-stick Teflon pan?
I use a heavy iron cast skillet. Not sure if will work to make this thin layer egg blanket, but will try.

Microwaved Hot dog's and a salad for breakfast…? Maybe if you used sausage instead of Hot dog's and Hash-browns instead of salad.

These are winners! The family likes them and they come together very easy. I put a slice of cheese in my husbands, but I liked them just dog and egg.
