This recipe takes a little longer because of the homemade dough, but it's worth the extra time in preparation. I'm pretty sure it came from Better Homes and Gardens.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in milk and water. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Add egg, oil or shortening, salt, remaining sugar, and enough flour to form a soft dough.
  3. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (8 to 10 minutes).
  4. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Cut a 1/4" deep lengthwise slit in each hot dog. Cut cheese slices into strips and place inside hot dogs.
  6. Punch dough down and divide into 10 portions. Roll into a 5x2 1/2" rectangle and wrap around prepared hot dogs.
  7. Pinch seam and ends to seal. Place seam side down on greased baking sheet and let rise for 30 minutes.
  8. Bake at 350 for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.

This recipe made for a fun supper. I followed the recipe exactly -- no substitutions, no alterations. Came out perfect! I used medium cheddar cheese and opted to use oil versus shortening. The crust is flaky and light... really delicious. The dough came together easily, too. I really enjoyed these Pigs in a Blanket! I took some pics and posted them to this recipe.
