Vegan Pigs in a Blanket (Can be made gluten-free)

Updated on September 28, 2014

Peekaboos: Vegan Pigs in a Blanket!

"Pigs in a Blanket" is a name given to bite-sized hot dogs or sausages that are wrapped in biscuit dough, then baked.

While not typically thought of as a vegan dish, it is actually easy to "veganize" this recipe for a delightful hors d'oeuvres or simple meal. We call them "Peekaboos," which only adds to the whimsical nature of Pigs in a Blanket.

When made with gluten-free Bisquick or other dough, these Peekaboos are both vegan and gluten-free!

The ingredients are few. The effort is mild. The result is a fun appetizer that can be eaten in a few bites as is or dipped into ketchup, mustard, or other condiment.

Two Versions of the Recipe

When I make vegan pigs in a blanket, or "peekaboos," I use either Bisquick or pizza dough for the wrap. For my oh-so-easy and delicious pizza dough recipe, click here. You can also use store-bought ready-to-use pizza dough.

If using Bisquick, you just need to have some soymilk (or other vegan milk) to mix into the Bisquick in order to make the dough.

Besides the dough, the only other ingredient are the vegan hot dogs or sausages. How simple is that?

One of the things I like about this recipe is that the ingredients can be kept on-hand, making this a good "emergency" appetizer that can be put together fairly quickly.

Ingredients for Vegan Pigs in a Blanket

How to Make Vegan Pigs in a Blanket

Preheat the oven to 450F.

Prepare the dough. This can be either Bisquick or pizza dough.

For the Bisquick version, follow the recipe on the box to make biscuits. Make sure to knead it briefly so that it is pliable and smooth. One batch of dough (1.5 cups Bisquick + 0.5 cup vegan milk) will provide enough dough for approximately 24 peekaboos.

Cut the vegan hot dogs or sausages into thirds, so that each section is about 1-1/4 or 1-1/2 inches long.

Working on a floured surface with your hands, take about 3/4 of a tablespoon of dough and flatten it to a patty measuring approximately 3 inches long and 1-1/2 inches wide. This is a very approximate measurement, and the patty does not need to be at all even. (See pictures below.)

Take a section of tofu hot dog and wrap the dough around it. Place the vegan pig in a blanket onto a baking sheet that has either been sprayed with oil or covered with parchment paper.

Continue flattening bits of dough and wrapping up the vegan hot dogs until they're all ready.

Place in the oven and bake for 7-10 minutes. The baking time may be several minutes longer when using pizza dough for the wrap.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Serve with dips such as ketchup, dijon mustard, or pizza sauce.


Vegan hot dogs can be frozen for easy storage!

Simply thaw them by soaking the package in hot water when you're ready to use them.
