  3. Add the mozzarella cheese to a medium microwaveable bowl. Cut the cream cheese into small pieces and add to the mozzarella cheese. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.  Stir. If the cheese hasn’t melted, cook for an additional 20-30 seconds more.
  4. Mix your dough either by hand or using a food processor (we used our hands).  Add the dry ingredients and process into a very sticky dough. PREHEAT OVEN TO 400 F.
  5. Roll your dough out and divide the dough into 8 equal portions . Working with one ball of dough at a time, fashion your dough around your hot dog, leaving the ends of your hot dogs out.  Place each rolled hot dog on the parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

  1. Making your egg wash by using 1 large egg and mixing with 2 teaspoons of water.
  2. Dip a pastry brush into the egg wash and brush the surface of each bagel dog – don’t forget the sides.
  3. Sprinkle with the Everything But the Bagel seasoning or Sesame Seeds to add a nice looking texture.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until browned.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN STARTING THE KETO DIET, AND FIND YOURSELF CONFUSED BY ALL OF THE INFORMATION OUT THERE!?

Some of the best information on starting the Keto Diet can be found at a site called Ruled.me. This site has lots of free information, but if you want a step by step plan I would suggest the Keto Academy Package. This is what I purchased and I still reference the material 18 months later.
