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.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

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 over...so easy they can help me make them!  I'm thinking I can pop them in my lunch too.

These were fabulous!  I used Smart Dogs, but next time I might try Linkettes.  I wanted to add some flavor to the dough, so I added half a teaspoon of Itailian seasoning.  It was great.  I will definitely be making these again.  From start to finish, under thirty minutes.

I'm so glad I found this recipe. I haven't had this since I was about 5 and I forgot how good they tasted.  Sooo good.  Thanks!!!!  ;)b

Oh my god these are great.  I used some onion powder,salt, and pepper in the dough.  And cooked up this pretty laid back garlic, onion, and basil glaze, and sprinkled some extra cooked dried up minced garlic and onion on the top.  I also sealed the dogs in the dough completely to try and lock in some extra juices. 

I just used a small amount of ketchup for dipping.  I'm thinking of trying to bake a little of that on top instead of the extra garlic and onions next time.

Excellent recipe!

I never liked ANY fake dogs. ANY. We are talking gag reflexes people. And I have tried them all (except tofurkey brand, they don't carry them here). But for some reason they taste amazing baked in this dough! I can't get enough! My daughter may actually grow up eating true (but healthy) American food!

BTW I don't post reviews. This one warranted an exception! ;)b

I still make this recipe all the time, and use the dough in so many ways... calzones, pocket pastry... it's my go-to dough recipe for whatever I'm trying to do... I've even made pizza with it!

Today I decided to pan-fry my soy dogs before wrapping and baking them, so I took my Tofu Pups, sliced them once the long way, and once the short way, fried them briefly in a little oil til lightly brownish, drained them on a paper towel, and then rolled them up and baked them.

PERFECT.

I love this recipe, period.  Thanks again!!!

Thats such a great idea to use the dough for other things! Thanks! I remember it being so easy too.

Yumyumyumyumyum! I had 5 Yves good dogs left, so I doubled the dough, and didn't cut the dogs in half. I used all whole wheat flour, and rolled the dough out on cornmeal. I had some dough left, so I made little Toffuti cheeze breads!  :P

I made these last night and am having the leftovers now during the Mets game, they're yummy!  My not-dogs didn't cook through as much as I'd have liked them to, so I cooked the leftovers for a while on a low heat today and now they're just to my liking.

I love the simple and so easy dough recipe, I'm looking all around the kitchen to think of other things to wrap in it.  I took the idea from one of the photos and rolled my dough out in a square and then cut it into triangle eigths to wrap the not-dog halves. 

Thanks for the FUN and yummy recipe, definitely making this again!  (and of course, love the name for the recipe. :) )

(Let's go Mets!)

This is my go-to recipe when I have some veggie dogs in the fridge that I need to eat before they go bad or I need extra protein. My mom used to make these every Halloween before us kids went out Trick-or-Treating (but with real hot dogs and American cheese wrapped in Pillsbury Crescent Rolls). Great food when you're feeling homesick :)
