Ingredients
  

  • 5 hot dogs * see note for gluten free brands
  • 2 cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder aluminum free!
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg large
  • 6 tablespoons butter cold (you can use vegan butter too)
  • 1 cup milk or non dairy milk

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350º F.
  • In a large bowl, add your dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • Add the cold butter in chunks and use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the flour. It should have fine crumbles when the butter is cut in.
  • In another bowl, add your wet ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Sprinkle some gluten free flour on wax paper and put the dough onto it.
  • Press or roll the dough to ¼ tp ½ inch thickness.
  • Cut each hot dog in half.
  • Cut the dough into strips and roll each hot dog in the dough strips.
  • Place the hot dogs onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Brush milk over each biscuit. This will help it get golden.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until the biscuit wrapping is slightly golden.
  • Serve hot and dip in ketchup or mustard.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF, Cup4Cup, and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. The Cup4Cup gluten free flour blend made the fluffiest biscuit coating. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. Xanthan Gum - If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the butter for vegan butter and use non-dairy milk.
  4. These pigs in a blanket will keep up to 3 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
  5. Many brands of hot dogs are gluten free. Always check the ingredients list on the label of any hot dog brand. Some of my favorite gluten free hot dog brands are Hebrew National, Nathans, Boars Head, O Organics, and Applegate.
