Keto Hot Dogs With Buns

If you are fairly active on social media, I am sure you have heard about the Keto diet. It seems to be the biggest trend in health and dieting. Although I am not doing Keto, I have changed a lot of what I have been eating this year. We have been eating very low carb foods, and have done away with sugar (mostly). Of course some days you need something more than just meat and vegetables. I won't lie, I have moments where I just want a few hot, crispy fries, or a slice of bread on the side of my breakfast omelet. I have been searching for different low carb and no carb bread substitutes. I did make a macadamia fat bread last weekend, but the overpowering nuttiness and richness just weren't for me. 

I have been hearing about keto fat head dough, so I took a basic recipe and tried it wrapped around premium hot dogs. The result was nothing short of amazing. I decided to share the simple recipe for those who are doing the lower carb lifestyle. 

Fat Head Dough Ingredients: 

3/4 cup almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 ounces cream cheese
2 large eggs
Everything bagel seasoning or topping of your choice (dehydrated onion flakes, garlic, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, Parmesan) 
6-8 dinner size or jumbo premium hot dogs (I like to cut them in half)


Heat oven to 400° and place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Mix almond flour with baking powder in small bowl and set aside. Crack eggs into a small bowl and lightly beat with a fork. In a large microwaveable bowl, add cream cheese and mozzarella. Microwave for up to 2 minutes until completely melted. Add in the almond flour and eggs to the melted cheese mixture. Mix quickly with a wooden spoon until completed combined and a dough forms. The dough will be sticky! Place dough onto parchment paper. Cut into equal portions according to how many hot dogs you have. Shape each piece of dough into a rectangle that can be wrapped around the hot dog. Place each wrapped dog on baking sheet and sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning. Bake for approximately 14-18 minutes or until nice and golden brown. 

These hot dogs with keto buns really hit the spot and took care of that pesky bread craving.  And trust me, using premium hot dogs makes a big difference. If you have a Kroger store nearby, I suggest the Private Selection Brisket Dogs. My husband and daughters loved them so it looks like these will be added to the weekend menu a few times each month. Next weekend I will make a fat head pizza. We are all looking forward to it!

  1. Thanks for posting your version of the KETO dog. My version uses bratwurst instead of hot dogs. I pre-cook the brats on the grill before wrapping them in the dough. After cooking, I wrap them in aluminum foil and freeze for lunch time. They reheat well in a microwave or in my reheat lunch box.

  2. These look great, but they appear to be different than the picture that is shown by you on pinterest. Is this the same recipe?

    1. Thank you for stopping by! Yes, this is the same recipe for the image you see on Pinterest. I updated the photos. Sorry for any confusion.

  3. Can I use cornstarch, rice flour or coconut flour instead? That are the only ones I have atm.

    1. You can try coconut flour, but it will most likely taste very sweet and coconutty. The almond flour is a lot more neutral. Cornstarch will definitely not work, and I don't know about the rice flour.

  4. Finally,fat bread that is easy and taste so good! Thank you,thank you! Mine turned out fabulous

  5. This was great 👌 My husband loved them!
