I "invented" this one day while experimenting
with a batch of cafeteria roll dough. Y'see, I'd heard
of pigs in blankets, but I can't ever remember eating
one, so it didn't occur to me that I was making something
already well-known until later on. Why, yes, it is natural
blonde, thank you for noticing.
So, for this you need some cafeteria roll dough and
hot dogs. I prefer Hebrew National reduced fat dogs.
They're not cheap, but they're relatively light on the
calories and taste nice and meaty. Cut the dogs into
thirds and microwave them for a minute. Press
the grease off with paper towels. Make rounds of roll
dough big enough to encase the segments in and then
do just that. Set them in a greased pan to rise until
they double in size. Then bake 'em for 12 minutes at 400 degrees,
until they turn (you guessed it!) golden brown. The
seam may split, but don't worry about that - it just
makes it look more like a hot dog in a bun.
A variation: use steamed bun
dough, wrap that around the hot dogs, and steam them
according to that recipe. When made this way, the "bun" has an
