I seriously can’t wait until Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s cook book comes out! It’s not going to be just a cook book, but will go into detail about all the health benefits of recipes and food preparation methods.
When the weather is cold and rainy, and you want hot and satisfying food, yet you don’t really feel like having another bowls of soup or stew for a while – well, then this will certainly make you happy. These are great with dinner, as snacks, when you watch TV, or have any gathering – you can make them as small pieces for snacks, or leave the hot dogs hole and serve for dinner, with a nice big salad.
Dr. Tae Yun Kim came up with this tasty and crispy and absolutely delicious version of hot dogs in a blanket.
She started out with yeast dough, gluten-free, consisting of 1/2 almond flour and half gluten free mixed flour, that already had xantham gum in it. She also added sea buckthorn flour, about 1/4 cup of it to a total of 4 cups of the other flours.
Dr. Tae Yun Kim is using a lot of sea buckthorn powder – check out its benefits below! It’s worth the effort of ordering it and using it in breads, cereals, tea, dessert, and others.
After you let the yeast dough rise (and this particular one stays well contained overnight in the fridge and rises beautifully the next morning) roll it out very thin and place your ingredients on top, like this:
The little red round things are Madrone berries, also very healthy for you. These particular ones used in the picture had been infused in alcohol for several months and were scrumptious. You press the berries into the dough after you rolled it out.
Then you use your (gluten-free) hot dogs, dab a little mustard in the middle, insert a slice of kosher dill pickle, and sprinkle with shredded cheese of your choice – Dr. Tae Yun Kim likes mozzarella and cheddar, but smoked gouda or other meltable cheeses are great too.
Let rise for 20 minutes and bake for 25-30 minutes and enjoy!
