A few weeks ago, I received a package of several packages of Applegate Hot Dogs and Sausages for review. I have been waiting for a good time to cook some of them on the grill, but it has been raining for at least two weeks here. So, today, I decided to use the uncured Smoked Sausage Minis to make some pigs in blankets. Before I started eating a gluten free diet, Pigs in Blankets was one of my go to appetizers for parties and get togethers. However, I have not made them since 2007 when I began eating gluten free. I have not been able to find anything that would would work like canned biscuits or canned croissants to make them with.
The first thing I had to do was find a recipe for some home made gluten free yeast rolls. I used this one, and made a batch of six rolls to see how they tasted. They came out pretty good, so I used the other half of the dough to make my Applegate Gluten Free Pigs in Blankets.
Because gluten free dough is usually quite wet and sticky, I used a spoon to scoop out some of the dough, and drop it the greased pan. Then I took one of the Applegate Uncured Smoky Cocktail Pork Franks and put it the middle of the dough, and used the spoon to cover it up with the ends of the dough.
So far, so good. When I finished preparing all of the pigs, I put them into a 400 degree oven for twenty minutes. The finished product came out really good. Even the non-gluten free husband said they were quite tasty.
