Low Carb Pigs in a Blanket

Carbs Per Serving: no counts provided
Effort: Easy


1 package carbolite bread mix (maybe the keto yeast bread would work -but I prefer carbo-lite
ingredients to make bread)
40 little smokie sausages
40 strips cheese approx 1″ long by 1/4″ wide
40 strips thin jalapeno 1″ long by 1/4″ wide (optional)

How to Prepare:
Make bread in bread dough according to package directions either by hand or in bread machine. As soon as it’s done mixing, remove and put in an oiled bowl and let rest for 20 minutes. Cut dough into 4
equal pieces, working with 1 at a time and keeping the others covered to keep from drying out. Cut dough section into 10 pieces and flatten with the heel of your hand until it’s about 2″ x 2″ square. Place a little smokie, a cheese strip and a jalapeno strip (if using) in the center and roll the dough around it, pinching the seams to seal (dampen your fingers with water if needed). Place seam
side down on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with butter flavored cooking spray. Once all the pigs are made, spray the tops with the cooking spray and place in a warm, draft free place (like
an oven) to rise for 1 hour. If you notice any coming apart, pinch the seams again or else the cheese will run out as they bake.

Preheat oven to 350F. Bake pigs until golden brown. Makes 40 appetizer pigs. Serve with assorted dipping sauces.
