Never miss a recipe!

Okay, so it’s a silly title… but I couldn’t help myself :)

These are the perfect little party treats! I’ve made them a few times and they’re always cleaned off the platter before the other appetizers. Aaannnddd people can’t tell they’re gluten free. Do I tell? Sometimes… Maybe :)

The dough is a spin off of Linda’s (Gluten Free Homemaker) multi-purpose gluten free pastry dough. I made it dairy and sugar free so the texture isn’t technically ‘pastry’ anymore. But according to my taste buds, its still fabulous.

Gluten Free Mini Pig’s in a Blanket


1 package ‘Lil Smokies (beef or turkey)

1/3 cups brown rice flour
1/3 cups millet flour
3 tbs tapioca flour
2 tbs cups potato starch
1/2 tbs xanthan gum
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbs cup canola oil
1 tbs almond milk
5 drops liquid stevia


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the flour, xanthan gum, and salt together in a medium bowl. In a separate small bowl mix together the oil, milk, and stevia. Combine both and work it with your hands.

I laid out a piece of plastic wrap on the counter and used a rolling pin to flatten to an 1/8 of an inch. A long rectangular strip is best. I cut the dough into triangles and rolled the ‘Lil Smokies in a croissant fashion.

Place the ‘piggies’ on a cookie sheet and bake them for approximately 20 minutes.

These are definitely an indulgent treat (not great for the waistline if you know what I mean…) And because of their addictive nature, you’ll have to reign yourself in. Hopefully you’ll be better at it than I ;)

  1. Whether or not the texture is still pastry, these look fab! I love pigs in a blanket (and the other various names they goes under) and regional variants, they’re like hot dogs almost.

  2. Okay, these I didn’t expect from you, but how cute and tasty. These would go quickly in our house, especially if Son stopped by. ;-) And, the support group would probably do back flips over them, too. LOL I need to stock up on a few ingredients before I can make them though. I’ll report back when I do, Aubree. Thanks!


  3. @Zoe Thanks! I definitely didn’t mind the texture, the taste well overpowered the fact that they weren’t completely ‘pastry-like’

    @Shirley Hmm, what are you saying, you didn’t expect these from me? :D (I’m taking it as a good thing! haha) I’d love to hear how you make out with them at your support group!!!

  4. Those mini piggies look delicious – and I love your name for your recipe!

    I just love this kind of stuff. Perhaps it’s time to host another party to have an excuse to make and serve pigs in a blanket? I’d never think to do so just for the family.

    So glad you join Food on Fridays, because your creative gluten-, sugar- and dairy-free recipes give people some fabulous alternatives.
