These may not look like traditional American hot dogs you are used to (maybe more like sausage rolls) but I can assure you - they are amazing! I've tried several recipes and different types of dough, including the one I used to make Pigs in Blanket (recipe from the KetoDiet Apps). Finally, I used the dough from my Ultimate Keto Buns and it was the best one by far. The dough is fluffy and soft inside and crispy on the outside.

Ingredients (makes 6 servings / hot dogs)

  • 1/2 recipe of Ultimate Keto Buns without the seed topping
  • 6 sausages, pastured and gluten-free (400 g / 14.1 oz)
  • 1 large egg yolk, free-range or organic
  • 2 tbsp mixed seeds of preference (sesame, flax, poppy seeds, caraway or sunflower seeds) (16 g / 0.6 oz)

If you can't tolerate psyllium, try this dough instead: Di's Low-carb Bread. When using ingredients, always go by their weight, especially in case of baked goods. Measures such as cups may vary depending on a product / brand.

  1. Prepare the dough for the hot dogs by following the recipe for Ultimate Keto Buns. I used my Kenwood mixer to process the dough. Ultimate Keto Hot Dogs
  2. Place the dough into a wrapping foil and leave to rest in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. When done, remove from the fridge and divide into 6 equal pieces. Ultimate Keto Hot Dogs
  3. Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F. Wet your hands and roll out each one of them into about 15 inch / 40 cm long. Wet your hands between rolling each of the pieces.
    I used pastured, gluten-free sausages from my local farm. You can use "regular" hot dog sausages, just make sure you avoid those with added flour, sugar and unnecessary additives. Ultimate Keto Hot Dogs
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat. Wrap around each sausage. I left gaps between the threads to allow for even cooking. It also helps crisping up the dough and reduces moisture. In a bowl, beat the egg yolk and brush onto each of the hot dogs. Ultimate Keto Hot Dogs
  5. Sprinkle with the seeds and salt and place in the oven. Ultimate Keto Hot Dogs
  6. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the dough is cooked through. Ultimate Keto Hot Dogs
  7. When done, place on a serving plate and serve with Dijon mustard, ketchup or BBQ sauce. Enjoy! Ultimate Keto Hot Dogs

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

OK, made these tonight.  Mine weren't quite as photogenic as the ones pictured above.  Rolling the dough must be an acquired skill.  However, they were mighty tasty.  Went to the natural food store (Natural Grocers) and bought all the "flours".  Came back and fixed dinner for my wife and myself and once again she was happy with the result.  So far I'm batting a 100% with the recipes on this site.  For those of you who live in parts of the world other than the US, batting 100% is a baseball term meaning that you've hit every time.  Means you've done well.  And it's not that I'm that good of a cook, it's that Martina has some recipes that are well done and easy to follow.


Thank you so much Dale, you just made my day! 😊 Yes, it may be a bit challenging to roll them out. It helps if you wet your fingers and press the dough in your fingers to make long dough "sticks". Then you can gently roll them to make them smooth and even.


This looks amazing! How is the consistency of the dough? Is it like pretzels?




Not really - too soft for pretzels but I have to admit they look like pretzels 😊


Oh my god! I can't wait to make these, they look incredible!


Thank you Emily!
