Keep these recipe tips in mind when making keto pigs in a blanket:
- Head on over here for the complete fathead dough ingredient list and recipe instructions.

These turned out so TASTY!
The taste and texture are fantastic, and my kids really love them. They reheat nicely for leftovers, and they also make the perfect party food!
Can the fat head pigs in a blanket be frozen?
Yes! You can freeze the pigs in a blanket. Just be sure separate so they don’t stick together. 🙂
Hi! I’ve been doing keto for close to 4 weeks now and have tried several “bread” recipes. The fathead dough was the 1st I tried and so far it’s the best.
Thanks for sharing! We love fathead too!
Made these for the first time last night. OMG they are good. The dough is by far the best keto dough I have had yet. I did use a quarter cup coconut flour and 1/2 a cup almond flour and replaced the hot dogs with Johnsville Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage. These will be a weekly staple and the dough will be used for so many things.
Sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing with us, Ben! SO happy to hear how good they turned out!
Amazing easy and tasty dough. I will be making this dough again
Oh good! Glad you enjoyed this!
Is there a way to premake the dough and refrigerate? Has anyone tried this? I thought about making the dough the night before to prep it while my hotdogs thaw from the freezer.
Yes that plan should work fine. Store it in a covered container.
I’m wondering if the dough can be shaped into pretzels then baked. I’m missing my hot, soft pretzels
How about trying these pretzel bites?
Holy Moley! So good! Added jalapeños and a little mozzarella on the inside. Topped them with Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel seasoning. I used larger sausage links so the dough only covered 6. But so delicious! Perfect keto breakfast! Thank you!
YUM! You’re very welcome, Mary Lee! Glad to hear you enjoyed them!
Do I need to cool the dough down before working with it? it was a sticky mess when I made these and look like something out of a horror movie. They were super delish I used the little smokies with cheddar
Glad to hear they were yummy! You could let it cool a bit before working with it or even put a tiny bit of oil on your hands to help reduce the sticking. Hoping that helps!
I just made these. They’re great! We are currently away from home without any scale, measuring cups etc so I had to eyeball everything. But I was lucky and they came out nice. I love the addition of sesame seeds.
Oh good! Super happy they turned out well for you, Victoria! Thanks for letting us know you enjoyed them!
So good..! Thank you.
Sure! Glad you enjoyed 👏
I have theses in the ove right now. Can’t wait to try them.
Yay! Hope you love them!😋🤗
Could I use a different kind of cheese like cheddar or Colby jack?
Hey there! We haven’t tried it with those. That may work as well, however it can alter the taste, nutrition and texture a bit. Let us know how it turns out if you decide to try it! 🤗
