Holiday Party

Recommended Posts

Having a Christmas party, I am attempting to make it gluten free. Popular item is cocktailweenies wrapped in like biscuit dough. Has anyone ever attempted to make that gluten-free?

I make mine with cheese-filled sausages, but I haven't yet found a way to convert them for DD. I'd be very interested in hearing if there is a dough that works as many signs are pointing to the rest of going gluten free very soon!

I have made hotdogs wrapped in gluten-free biscuit dough. They turned out okay - the biggest problem was that the dogs shrunk and the wrapping didn't. Might be easier with cocktail weinies. Here's what I used for the dough.

2 C gluten-free Flour*

1/2 C Butter (I use salted butter - if you use shortening add 1/2 tsp. of salt)

1 Tbs. Baking powder

3/4 C Milk

Sift flour and baking powder together. Cut butter into flour using pastry blender. Make sure the butter is very well mixed in! Add milk and stir until dough forms a ball. Depending on the humidity, you might need a little more, but be careful not to get it too sticky. Roll out to desired thickness (about 3/8", I think is what I did) on a clean "flour sack" type towel, (NOT terry cloth) well floured with rice flour. Cut into desired size and wrap around the dogs.

(You can also mix in some grated cheese and even garlic powder!)

*Flour mix I use:

3 C Brown Rice Flour

1 C Potato Starch

1/2 C Tapioca Starch

2-1/2 tsp. Xanthan gum

Make sure that whatever flour mix you use has xanthan gum in it or the biscuit dough will fall apart.

I used Chebe mix, any one of them would work.. it is a thick dough, and i just simply rolled the little doggies in it and baked. Even my brother (who basically thinks I have an allergy and would have a sneezing fit if I ate gluten) he liked them!

These are not pigs in a blanket, but a good idea for a party snack:

Gluten Free Corn puppies (mini corn dogs)

1 c. Featherlight mix


DD: gluten-free/casein-free, soy lite, corn lite

I always thought they were a ground meat mixture rolled into cabbage leaves and baked in tomato sauce :blink: Maybe I'm thinking of something else?

Pigs in a Blanket are little cocktail hot dogs rolled in some type of biscuit dough, to resemble a mini hot dog.

That is my wife's definition, too. What we (my family) called pigs in a blanket when I was growing up was hotdogs wrapped in crescent rolls.

I've heard multiple things called pigs-in-blankets now, basically small meat pies of some kind-I grew up thinking they were Dutch in origin because I grew up with a bunch of Dutch-Americans who called them saucijzenbroodjes, and it was a big deal at the Tulip festivals they hold in the U.S. But they have a similar type food many places in the world(even a Peruvian restaurant I went to once had something very similar), so I'm not sure where they originated, but the Dutch-American version is ground meat in a roll within a puff pastry type thing.

What if you wrap them in bacon? We had a party at work and they had these little hotdog things wrapped in bacon.

Hi, I did a dry run and used the biscut dough, they turned out really well, thanks. The mini corn dogs are now on the list of things to try. The dogs wrapped in bacon sound good too, I wrap dates stuffed with montery jack cheese with bacon , sounds odd but tastes good.

We must have gone to the same school ,I too say pigs in a blanket is "Halupky" but I think the younger ones say they are the hot dog all wrapped up....

Water Chesnuts wrapped in bacon is a good one too..
