Here’s a fun new recipe for keto-friendly pigs in a blanket.

Pigs in a Cheddar Blanket

Ingredients for cheddar pigs

Items to order from Cambrooke

KetoVie Café Cheddar dough and Veggie Dip Mix

Other ingredients

  • 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)

Instructions

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.

Preparing the cheddar pigs

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

Broccoli slaw

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.
