Today’s cooking adventure was Low Carb Pigs in a Blanket. I started with the usually oopsie roll recipe found here: http://yourlighterside.com/?p=174. In order to make them corn dog batter flavored I added 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard and used 1 packet of Splenda in the yoke mixture.
I used Lil Smokies as the “pigs” in this recipe. Once the oopsie batter was complete I placed a small strip on the pan (slightly larger than the lil smokies). I then place one lil smokie on each strip and covered it with additional batter.
Picture of assembling the Low Carb Pig in a Blanket:
Once assembled, I baked the pigs in a blanket until browned (25-30 mins)
Oopsie Batter 4 net carbs
Lil Smokies (1/2 pack) 6 carbs
Total: 10 net carbs (entire recipe). A little less than one carb per pig in a blanket.
*Note carb counts are estimated based on the products I used. Check nutrition labels for accurate carb counts.

Comments: These turned out really well and tasted just like corn dogs! Next time I will try to use a little less batter so the pig-to-blanket ratio is better. Also, they do not taste very good cold, so make sure you let them come to room temperature if you store them.DISCLAIMER: Not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease.
