How To Make These Keto Hot Dog Buns
Making and enjoying hot dogs has never been easier during a keto diet. Trust me, even the most unskilled kitchen workers can make keto-friendly hot dog buns. Here is everything you have to do:
Making the Dough
Add the shredded mozzarella and cream cheese to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for one minute until melted.
Remove the bowl from the microwave, whisk them together, and let it cool for a few minutes.
