Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup blanched, finely ground almond flour
  • 1 ounce cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 4 beef hot dogs
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds or everything bagel seasoning (optional)
  • Ketchup or Mustard for dipping (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a medium-sized baking sheet with parchment.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, add the mozzarella and almond flour. Break the cream cheese into small pieces and add to the bowl. Microwave for 30 to 45 seconds, or until the cheese is melted.
  • Stir the mixture with a fork until a soft ball of dough forms. Sprinkle the dough with baking soda and add the egg yolk. Break the yolk with a fork and stir it into the dough until a sooth ball forms.
  • Lay a piece of parchment paper on a flat work surface. Wet your hands with a bit of water and flatten out the dough to about 3 x 4 inches and about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Use a knife to cut the dough into four even pieces. Pat the hot dogs with a paper towel to remove surface moisture and gently wrap a piece of dough around each, leaving he ends exposed, pinching at the seam to close. The dough will expand a bit during baking, so try to wrap each as closely as possible without breaking the dough.
  • Place all the wrapped hot dogs on the baking sheet and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 18-20 minutes. The dough will turn golden and firmer when cooked. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes; otherwise, the dough my fall apart.
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauces, such as mustard or ketchup.
