I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected.

This can be a great breakfast idea, make them ahead and pop them in the microwave for a quick breakfast on the go. I like them for dinner. They have an unexpected sweet taste. Enjoy

  • One Package of Hotdogs (I use a chicken/pork dog)
  • One Egg for each hotdog (generally 8)
  • Cooking Spray
  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Place the hotdogs on a broiler sheet and cook for approx 15 minutes or until they are cooked the way you like them. (I like a little brown crust on mine)
  3. While your hotdogs are cooking spray a small skillet with cooking spray and heat on med heat.
  4. Crack one egg into a small bowl and whisk until blended. Pour egg in hot skillet and gently roll pan to create a thin layer of egg.
  5. Cook until just a thin layer on top is uncooked and flip, finishing the cooking for about 30 seconds to a minute.
  6. Remove egg from the pan and allow to cool on a wire rack.
  7. Repeat the process with each egg, making one egg blanket for each hotdog.
  8. When all the blankets are done place one hotdog on each and roll up using a toothpick to hold it together.
  9. Serve with your favorite condiments
  10. Optional ingredients:
  11. Sliced American Cheese
  12. Chili
  13. Thinly sliced green onions
