Pastry Wrapped Cheesy Cocktail Franks are the appetizer to have on your table for the holidays. Full of cheesy flavor in the dough and a cheesy surprise in the center of the frank, these are Grumpy’s very favorite appetizer!

Pastry Wrapped Cheesy Cocktail Franks

This year I decided to make these little appetizers fit into our low carb lifestyle and made a my own version of a low carb dough with cheese and almond flour. Kaukauna® Cheese Spread Cups were the perfect choice to add to my dough! It gave the dough a distinctly cheesy flavor!

I wanted these little bites to be really cheesy, so I decided I would not only put some of the cheese in the dough I was going to wrap the cocktail franks in, but I would also stuff the franks with the Kaukauna Cheddar Cheese Spread. Just a little slice of jalapeno was added to a few of these before wrapping the franks in the dough. I can’t resist a little heat in my food and the cheese and jalapeno go so well together.

Making the dough on your own is not hard at all! It comes together very quickly, is very easy to handle and is made in mere minutes using the microwave!

There is no yeast, so no rising, and because the main ingredient is cheese, it is very pliable!

For this recipe I bought the Kaukauna® Spreadable Cheddar Cheese in the cup, however you can also find it as cheese logs or balls. Made with 100% cheddar, Kaukauna can be served on it’s own or as a part of a recipe like the one I’ve shared with you here! You can find out more about their cheese by visiting their website.

I found Kaukauna®’s Cheddar in a tub in the cheese aisle at ShopRite!
