What’s a party without little pigs in the blanket? If you are grain-free or gluten-free that can be a problem as all the mixes and frozen selections have conventional wheat buns. Not to mention the nitrates, food colorings and other additives in the store bought piggies. Here is an easy fix. Use your best franks that are from pastured beef or pork (without any nitrates or additives) and make your own grain-free buns! I’ll tell you how.

Grain-Free Party Franks



Cook the franks in a pot of simmering water for 8 minutes or until just splitting and put aside to cool
Separate the eggs and put the yolks in the food processor
Beat the whites and put them aside
Add the ghee and applesauce to the yolks and process
Add the coconut flour, salt and baking soda and process
The batter should be somewhat stiff as the whites will fluff it up
Remove to a mixing bowl and fold in the whites
Cut the cooked franks into bite size pieces along the vertical
On a cookie sheet line up the franks
Drop about a teaspoon of batter onto the frank and try to leave the ends sticking out
Continue with this until all the batter is gone
Try to bring the batter up around the sides
It will be sticky and difficult to do and will not be smooth like the store bought ones, but hey these are homemade!
Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes or until the buns are browned
Remove and cool
Plate and serve with toothpicks and mustard on the side

These went very quickly even with the grain eating crowd!
