In honor of National Hot Dog Day, I wanted to make hot dogs for dinner, but I was out of buns. I thought about pigs in a blanket but didn't have any whomp biscuits or pre-made dough. So I opted for a quicker version, with an all-purpose baking mix. I added the potatoes to lighten up the dough.

A quick and easy pigs in a blanket recipe that will convince you never to pick up a frozen package again. Using instant mashed potatoes lightens up the dough. The hardest part about this recipe is rolling out the dough. Serve with mustard or ketchup for a weekend lunch or simple weeknight meal. This recipe uses hot dogs, but you could easily substitute with little smokies if you're looking for an appetizer. Your family will love these! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Homemade Pigs in a Blanket

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse the hot dogs and pat dry with a paper towel. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Pull out a baking sheet.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the baking mix, milk, and prepared mashed potatoes. Stir well.
  4. Spread some of the baking mix on your work surface. You can use a wooden cutting/pastry board if you like. Scoop the dough onto the work surface. Sprinkle with a little baking mix. Knead the dough, folding and turning, for one minute. If the dough is still sticky, add a little more baking mix.
  5. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Using a sharp knife, cut it horizontally into 1-inch strips. Spread the strips out, leaving half an inch between them.
  6. Pick up a hot dog. Set the top of the hot dog on the left edge of the strip. Roll gently, spiraling the dough around the hot dog. Press dough ends into the main spiral. Continue with all the hot dogs.
  7. Place on an ungreased baking sheet leaving some space between them. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Notes:
    I used Bisquick. If you prefer another brand of baking mix, be sure to follow their baking directions for basic biscuits.

    You can make a cut in the hot dogs and add cheese.

    I served these with ketchup or mustard as a dipping sauce.

    If you have any dough leftover, make some biscuits.
