      1. I make this pigs in a blanket recipe nearly every week. They’re good for picky eaters. The Italian spice is a nice addition.

      2. I had been told to bring the hot dogs to a potluck. They figured since I am keto, I could do that. I make my own hot dogs so that was easy.
        And this made the dough so simple that I had plenty of them ready in no ties. As usual, Wes, like everything else you have on your website, it was delicious and simple to make. Thank you my friend!
