Vegan Soy Pigs in a Blanket


Cordelia loves veggie dogs. Each and every day she asks if we can have veggie dogs or pink cupcakes for dinner. Occasionally I oblige. Have you ever tried making vegan pigs in a blanket? They are easy and a fun fort night food (in case you need an excuse to have a fort night).

You will need:
  • Soy veggie dogs (so easy to find. I can even find them at every grocery store in small town WY)
  • your favorite vegan pizza dough
  • chopped onion
  • chopped dill pickle or relish
  • sauerkraut
  • mustard
  • Ketchup
First you will need to make your dough. When that is ready pre-heat your oven to 400F.

Cut your veggie dogs in half. You will end up with 16 halves.

blobs of dough
Separate your dough into 16 approximately even sized balls of dough. Sometimes I just grab as I go, but if you want uniformity pull your dough in half, then take each half and separate again (you will have four blobs of dough), and separate each blob in half again (you will have eight blobs-o-dough), finally separate in half one last time (you will have 16 blobs-o-dough).

Use your hand to press down each individual blob into a flattened disc. This is not an exact science, you can be pretty sloppy about it. You can go one at a time or do it all at once if you have the space.

all ready to wrap
Take a bit of onion, sauerkraut and pickle---place it down the center of your flattened disc of dough. Add a thin line of mustard (you can also add ketchup, but I usually just dip the whole thing in ketchup as I eat it). Top with the veggie dog. Roll it up, pressing the seam lightly.

Waiting to go in the oven
Arrange on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.


You could mix it up and make a vegan chili and use Daiya shredded cheese to make these vegan chili dogs in a blanket. Get creative!

These look so tasty! I'd love to make this for a quick dinner night meal with leftover pizza dough. Great post!

Love them! Never thought to use pizza dough...usually I try to find the crescent-rolls-in-a-tube (Pillsbury makes vegan ones) but homemade pizza dough is probably much healthier and cheaper! Thanks for the idea. :)
