The perfect low-carb snack or meal. Even my 2 year old (who is not on low-carb diet) loves these dogs.

Hmm Bagel Dogs at the mall, have you had them? When I’m in a rush and very hungry the smell hits me and I used to have to get one. Things have changed these days and I constantly work on controlling what I buy, cook and eat.

The good news is that now you can make homemade Keto Hot Dogs (Pretzel Dogs) in just 30 minutes with some simple ingredients.

These low-carb hot dogs can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can reheat them in the microwave or in the oven.

Can you eat hot dog on low-carb/ Keto diet?

Yes, you can eat hot dog meat while on Keto diet. Since they are meat based and low in carbs you can eat them without the bun.

But I have a better idea – why not make a low-carb bun and you  can enjoy your favorite hot dog minus the extra carbs. Yes I know, fathead dough does not taste like regular hot dog bun, but honestly I love these so much and I don’t miss the real thing.

What kind of hot dogs to use to make these low-carb pretzel dogs?

Any meat based hot dogs, that are relatively low in carbs (and sodium preferably) will work in the recipe. The higher the quality the better. I personally like using all beef hot dogs to make low-carb pretzel dogs.

How to make Keto hot dogs?

In a bowl, combine the mozzarella and cream cheese and heat over a double boiler or in the microwave until the cheese is melted. Stir to combine the cream cheese with the melted mozzarella.

Let it cool for 2 minutes, then add in the salt, baking powder and 1 3/4 cups of the almond flour. dd one beaten egg. Stir with a spatula to incorporate. Alternatively if the cheese is not too hot to handle, knead with your hands.
