A Childhood Favorite

Kind of a funny picture, but they were yummy -


I remember my mom used to make a non-vegan version of these when I was a kid... This animal-friendly version is adapted from a VegWeb recipe. Ironically, this quintessential kid-friendly recipe did not go over well with Carlos, but Matt and I liked them.

Next time, I'll slit the dogs partway through and stuff some vegan cheese inside before I bake them. I didn't have any vegan cheese on hand this time around.
Pigs in a Blanket
8-10 vegan hot dogs
1-1/2 cups unb
leached flour

3 tablespoons cornmeal

1 tablespoon sugar

3 teaspoons baking powder

3 tablespoons canola oil
~ 1/2 cup water

Mix together flour, cornmeal, sugar, and baking powder. Drizzle oil over mixture and combine well. Add water a bit at a time, until dough forms.
If you want them to look pretty, you can roll the dough out and cut it in some creative way; I didn't feel like it so I just took a lump of dough and pressed it flat and wrapped it around each dog. Next time, I'll make the dough cover the ends of the dogs as well (the exposed ends of these got a little rubbery when I baked them). Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Serve with your favorite condiments.

This is to weird. I just bought vegan dogs and put vegan cheese on them for lunch today. Great minds....

Just made these last night and they were a hit. I made the entire dough and covered 5 smart dogs. They turned out like corn dogs. Thanks for sharing!!
