40 minutes
Calories 430kcal


  • 4 hot dogs (or hot links, check for carb content, cut into “pennies”.)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese (or hot links, check for carb content, cut into “pennies”.)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (or hot links, check for carb content, cut into “pennies”.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or hot links, check for carb content, cut into “pennies”.)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Measure out almond flour, add garlic powder, salt, and xanthan gum and stir in a bowl.
  • Put cheeses into a microwave safe bowl and heat for about a minute and 30 seconds.
  • Stir the cheeses for 30 seconds; add almond flour mixture and egg.
  • If it is too stringy, heat for another 20-30 seconds in the microwave.
  • Wet hands and form into 4 balls on a baking sheet with parchment or a baking mat.
  • Spread each ball into a rectangle with wet hands.
  • You want it to be relatively thin so that it is crispy (unless you like really soft doughy texture for your pocket).
  • Fill each rectangle with 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese and 1/4 of the sliced hot dogs.
  • Fold over to close the pocket, and press around the edges with a fork to secure the sides.
  • Poke the crust a few times with a fork.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes.
  • Watch for doneness starting at 15 minutes and pull from the oven when they are a dark, golden brown
