Here’s a fun new recipe for keto-friendly pigs in a blanket.
Pigs in a Cheddar Blanket
Items to order from Cambrooke
KetoVie Café Cheddar dough and Veggie Dip Mix
- 4 (40 grams) Cocktail sausages (we used Hillshire Farm’s Beef Lit’l Smokies)
- ½ cup (40 grams) Broccoli slaw (no dressing)
- 1 cup (224 grams) Mayonnaise (we used Hellmann’s to get the highest ratio for our dressing)
Defrost a ball of Cheddar Dough at room temperature.
Preheat your oven to 350°F, you could also use a toaster oven as pictured.
Cut the cheddar dough into 4 equal pieces (7g each).
Form the dough pieces into a flat rectangle long enough to wrap around a cocktail sausage.
Cup your hand to help mold the dough around the sausages.
Spray a cookie sheet and evenly space pigs.
Cook for 12 -15 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Make the slaw while your cheddar pigs are cooking
Measure 1 cup (240 grams) mayonnaise.
Stir in 1 packet
Measure ½ cup (40 grams) Broccoli slaw vegetables.
Add 2 Tbsps. (23 grams) prepared veggie dip to the broccoli slaw and place on plate.
Place any remaining dip in the fridge to use later in the week on vegetables, or as a dressing on a salad.
Arrange the cooked cheddar pigs around the broccoli slaw and chow down.
