Well, we are just diving into weenie roast season, which happens to be one of my favourites. Zoey completely loses her mind with excitement whenever I say we are having a weenie roast for dinner!
I am not opposed to eating bunless hot dogs, there is a time and a place for sure, but for all those other times, I whip up these delicious Keto Hot Dog Buns!
With less than 20 minutes from start to finish, they are not only a healthy alternative to your typical hot dog bun, but are also keto friendly, gluten free and super tasty!
I hope you love these Keto Hot Dog Buns as much as I do 🙂
What you’ll need to make Keto Hot Dog Buns
To make these buns you will need almond flour, parmesan cheese, baking powder, baking soda, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, mozzarella, butter and an egg.
How to make Keto Hot Dog Buns
These wiener huggers take no time to create, so you can enjoy hot dogs to their full potential within 20 minutes from start to finish.
First things first, you’ll want to turn the oven on to 375 °.
Now grab a medium sized microwaveable bowl and add almond flour, parmesan cheese, baking powder, baking soda, garlic powder, onion powder and sea salt.
Give the mix a stir, then toss in the shredded mozzarella. Top with a tbsp of butter then microwave for 45 seconds.
Mix with a wooden spoon, microwave for an additional 20 seconds then mix again. By now the mozza should be fully melted. If not? Microwave in 10 second increments until it is.
Crack the egg into a small dish and whisk well. Remove 2 tsp of the egg and set aside, then pour the remaining egg into the almond flour / cheese. Mix until fully combined.
Pour in the vinegar and knead until fully mixed.
Dump the dough onto a non stick baking mat lined baking sheet and form into a log. Divide the dough into four sections, then roll each section into a long log.
Space the logs evenly around the baking sheet, then brush the set aside egg over top of each log.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until the tops are golden brown. Let sit for a few minutes to cool before slicing and filling with your hot dogs!

What low carb side dishes go with hot dogs?
It’s often we don’t add side dishes to weenie roast night, just a pile of dogs and sauce options while the children’s laughter rings through the air. For all the other times I really like to pair hot dogs with salad. Here are a few of my favourites:
- Ranch Cauliflower Broccoli Salad with Bacon and Cheddar
- Low Carb Caesar Salad with Kale and Cheese Crisps
- Low Carb Broccoli Salad with Bacon, Cheddar and Kale
Feel like something chippy? I know, chips go SO WELL with hot dogs for some reason… I love these Baked Tortilla Chips! I make them with low carb tortillas.. they are so easy and fast to whip up, they can even be baked while making these Keto Hot Dog Buns! 😜
How to store Keto Hot Dog Buns
These buns are best if eaten within the day, but can be kept in the refrigerator for about a week.
I like to freeze any leftovers right after we eat to reserve their freshness. Simply toss the buns into a freezer safe ziploc bag and freeze for 4-6 months! They thaw in no time, so you can just pull them out of the freezer a little while before you make your next round of hot dogs.
Frequently asked questions
Can you eat hot dogs on the keto diet?
Depending on your own variation of the keto diet, you’ll want to be careful which varitey you buy. Strict keto is all about unprocessed foods so look for a natural hot dog without all the extra garbage you find in cheap hot dogs.
Personally, I don’t like to feed my kids anything processed, so am always spending the extra $ on natural hot dogs.
How many net carbs are in a hot dog bun?
A typical white hot dog bun has 24 g net carbs. Yowza, that’s a lot, hey?
One of these Keto Hot Dog Buns? 2 g net carbs!
Is ketchup Keto friendly?
That completely depends on the ketchup you buy.
Most ketchup is basically made from sugar. It’s crazy the amount that is used to make this delicious sauce… no wonder it’s so good, right?
There are brands that make ‘no sugar added’ ketchup like Heinz or Primal Kitchen that totally work for the keto diet, though you still have to be careful how much you eat.
Alternately you can try and make your own! Check out this recipe from Sugar Free Londoner.
