Smart Dog Roll-Ups


This is one of my favorite lunches when I’m working at home. It doesn’t take long, it’s easy and it satisfies all my taste buds!

Makes as many as you want, but I only have 1 Jumbo veg dog cut in half to make 2 roll-ups

1 JUMBO SMART DOG by Lightlife, cut horizontally in half to produce essentially 2 hot dogs

2, 6 inch flour tortillas

a little oil for the skillet

prepared yellow mustard

chopped onion

sweet or dill relish

Brush a non-stick skillet with a little oil and lightly fry the halved veg dogs on medium-low heat till very hot, or place in microwave for about 30 seconds or till very hot. The wattage of your microwave is probably different than mine, so start off with a few seconds and work up. Too hot for too long will make the veg dog plastic-like.

Brush another skillet or the same one with a little oil and heat each tortilla till warm and pliable.

Remove from skillet. Spread mustard evenly over one side of each tortilla. Place each veg dog half in center of each tortilla.

Top with onion and relish, then roll up and seal. Wipe off excess mustard at seam location, then place seam-side down in skillet and cook till lightly browned and crisp. Gently turn over and brown the other side.

Remove from skillet to board, cut each in half, plate and serve.

Notes: Thirty calories of fat per veggie dog isn’t much fat when you consider 1 Tablespoon of oil equals 120 calories. And it’s a jumbo hot dog. You can purchase fat-free veg dogs, and we often do, but this time I wanted one a little more juicy. They are good and you don’t have to fry them if you want to reduce the oil even further.

The six inch flour tortillas contain only 20 calories of fat each. Not much there either. Two equals 40 calories.

I split one veg dog horizontally in half to make two roll-ups, that’s how big they are. It’s a satisfying lunch with not much fat.
