The Pigs are Safe in the Barn

What you need: 

1/2 cup unbleached flour
1 tablespoon corn meal
1 tablespoon oil
1/2-1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 vegan hot dogs, halved (I use Smart Dogs)

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix together all ingredients (except vegan hot dogs).
2. Add water little by little until a dough ball is formed. Roll the dough out as thin as you would a tortilla.
3. Wrap the dough around each dog 1/2. Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden.
Serve with your favorite condiments. I’m attempting Thai peanut sauce.

I'm making these this weekend using Tofu Pups! I can't friggen wait! I've been anticipating it allll weeek!  >:D


Me and the wee one tried this for lunch today -- man alive! So good!

We used Yves Hot 'N Spicy Chili (veggie) Dogs -- because they're not really spicy spicy, just more pungent and flavorful. I worried for a sec that my son wouldn't like the heat but he didn't even notice. He plowed through a couple, dipped in ranch or ketchup, and had some fruit salad for dessert.

Thank you! This is a recipe we'll use again, and again - super easy and quick, and a big hit.


These were cute! I added about a teaspoon of garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the mix. I don't know how much water I used. These are much tastier, cheaper, and healthier than those pre-packaged corndogs, and just about the only way I'll eat the soy hotdogs (they were on super super cheap manager's special and I had to get them!). The cornmeal adds a delicious crunchy texture.


this was AMAZING!

It tasted so delicious!


Oh yeah, and I also added basil to the dough.  I think I may sub butter for oil next time.  I use Smart Balance Light, and I think it would remind me more of the "real" thing from when I was a kid.  My dad always used those Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, and they always tasted of butter.  Yum.


I used Smart Dogs...and it made me remember how much I don't really like Smart Dogs.  Buuuut I live in a town where there are very few vegan options, and that is the only option for not dogs.  Soooo when I go to a bigger city (Raleigh, next weekend), I will get some Yves.  Hopefully those will be better.


Decided to have a comfort food night to get the kids all excited! This recipe is fab! love love love the breading... we used whole wheat flour since it's what we had on hand and it was so delicious. I'm not super crazy about Smart Dogs but the kiddos are so we made those for them. For the "big kids" ( that should really read - grown folk ) we used some vegan Italian "sausages". Whoa baby. Dipped them in some Trader Joes BBQ sauce. Pure indulgence. Fun recipe!


I made these today because I wanted something quick and pigs in a blanket was one of my favorites growing up.  I brushed the dough with some earth balance and they turned out rad!  Next time I'm going to follow the advice and add some garlic.


cute, fun, easy, and tastes good.
my hot dog buns are jealous.


These are great and very easy to make!  I rolled the dough (well patted it out really...not enough to bother with a rolling pin) on a board dusted with cornmeal....I think I got that idea from AC's review.  They came out with a nice crunchy crust.  These will be great to make when children come easy they can help me make them!  I'm thinking I can pop them in my lunch too.
