Buffalos and Blankets

When you're trying to reverse Diabetes, as I was in 2011, some days are better than others. For many of us out there, the news that most of the ingredients and restaurants you know and love are suddenly not allowed is the hardest pill to swallow. Making every meal at home can be very challenging for some of us. Sometimes, I just needed quick nutrition that came together in less than 10 minutes.

Rolling up Miss Dot's Buffalos and Blankets

Cue this recipe. Not only is it a tasty and quick lunch to have with a side salad, it's something the kids will adore. It also makes a great little bite for your next sports party. It's so quick and versatile.

Naturally, you probably know this recipe as Pigs in a Blanket, but when I was using the Maximized Living dietary guidelines, pork was out for me. Instead, I substituted all natural bison hot dogs for a literal stampede of strength. Here's what you need:

Crepes - Make a double batch of these for breakfast, and you'll turn this into a 10 minute lunch. Find my recipe for crepes HERE.

Bison Hot Dogs - Of course beef works too, but it's never too late to check out the health benefits of bison (especially the liver!)

Buffalos and Blankets

Serves: 6-8

Prep: 5 min

Cook: 15 min

Ready: 20 min


  • 1 pound of bison hot dogs

  • 1 order of Miss Dot's Crepes, recipe HERE


  1. Take the bison hot dogs and slice into 2 inch lengths. Cut the crepes into 2 inch wide strips. Roll the dogs in the strips. Place in a warm oven to reheat dogs and crepe blankets til ready to serve. Stick a toothpick through the bites to keep the blanket around the dog.

  2. The second version of this recipe is to pour the blanket mixture into a muffin pan and place the sliced hot dogs into the center of the muffins. Bake in a 450 degree preheated oven for 12-15 mins. The blanket mixture should puff up over the bite. Serve with mustard.

Jack is one of those Labs of a lifetime. Strong, big, determined, docile, agile, gentle, devoted and actually attached at the hip to me. I never go anywhere without him at my side. He’s probably the smartest dog I’ve ever had...
