  • ½ tsp (2,5 ml) salt
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) Baking powder

Preparation

Prepare the car’’hot’’-dogs

  • In a pot, place the whole carrots with water. Once the water is boiling, cook for about 12 minutes. Carrots should be al-dente.
  • To stop the cooking, put the carrots in cold water.
  • During cooking, mix together the ingredients for the marinade and place it in an airtight container.
  • Once cooked, place the cooled carrots in the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours.

 

Prepare the pizza dough

  • In a bowl, mix warm water, sugar and yeast. Let stand for 5-10 minutes to activate the yeast.
  • Meanwhile, mix together the wheat starch, Metamucil, salt and baking powder.
  • When the yeast is activated, add oil to the mix. Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Pour the liquid ingredients. Mix well. Knead the dough for a few minutes.
  • Place in an oiled bowl and let rise for 25-30 minutes with humidity (Heat a cup of water in the microwave oven, it creates the perfect humid place to let the dough rise).

 

Prepare the pigs in a blanket

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Dry the carrots with a paper towel.
  • Roll dough to obtain a rectangle of 35 x 25 cm (17 x 10 inches).
  • Place marinated carrot on the dough. Roll to cover the dough (dough should overlap slightly below the carrot).
  • Cut into 3 sections and place on a baking sheet.
  • Repeat the steps to use all the carrots and half the dough recipe.
  • Bake for 17-20 minutes.

Serve with ketchup, mustard or your favorite sauce.

 

Note: With the other half of dough, take the opportunity to try English muffins! (Find all the instructions in the recipe for English muffins).
