When I was a single, struggling mom, I used to make Pigs in a Blanket for Styles at least once a week. It was his favorite meal of the week. Pair it with some broccoli and it’s a meal, right? Funny.
I quit making them when my reproductive endocrinologist put me on a very low-carbohydrate diet devoid of “white”. That was about 6 years ago and I haven’t made them since.
The Muffin and The Stinky love hot dogs and I’ve been having a craving for Pigs in a Blanket for a while now, so I set out to find the perfect biscuit recipe to wrap around some little wieners *cough* You know what I mean – get your head out of the gutter! I haven’t found one that I’m desperately in love with, but Perfect Paleo Biscuit recipe from Simply Living Healthy is as close as I could get. I added a couple of ingredients and I’m going to teach you how to make these biscuits into delicious Pigs in a Blanket that even your kids will eat.
This recipe is perfect for a healthy Superbowl snack, a delicious Paleo gathering of friends, or to take to your non-Paleo friends homes to show them just how delicious Paleo living can be.
I can’t wait to hear how you like them!
*For the BISCUITS:
- 6 egg whites
- 3/4 C almond flour
- 1/4 C coconut flour
- 1 t baking powder
- 1/4 t salt
- 1 1/2 T butter or coconut oil, chilled
- 1/4 t Garlic Powder
- 1/2 t Kosher salt
How to do it:
- Whisk egg whites until they are extremely frothy.
- In a separate bowl, mix the flours and baking powder then cut-in the cold butter or coconut oil. Add garlic powder and salt. You want the mixture to be quite crumbly, like moist sand. Place in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
- Gently fold egg whites into the flour mixture, stirring until just combined.
- Preheat your oven to 400*
- Take 1 level teaspoon of batter and flatten into a rectangle in your fingers. 1 teaspoon is the perfect amount. If you use more than that, the biscuit will overpower the wiener.
- Place one wiener in the middle of the rectangle then wrap your fingers around it, smoothing batter all around the wiener.
- Place Pig in a Blanket on a parchment covered baking sheet.
- Repeat 51 times.
- Bake for 13-16 minutes, until golden. My oven sucks big Rocky Mountain Oysters so I sometimes have to cook mine for 20 minutes. I hope your oven is better than mine. Piece of junk.
These are delicious served with some Paleo Ketchup, or Dijon mustard. They are divine when served warm with a smattering of Chevre.
They are also great as a fun lunch or dinner for your kiddos. Just don’t forget to roast some broccoli or saute some Brussels Sprouts as a side!
