I developed this Cheese Dog Pie a few months after I started this diet and although I’d already decided that Trim Healthy Mama was my diet for life it was this pie that helped me realize that I was going to be able to keep enjoying my comforting soul food and embrace a healthy diet. This dish will always have a special place in my heart and at my table because of that so I’m moving it over from my old blog now.
The topping for this recipe is very similar to the one in another favorite that I call Tamale Pie. In the time since I originally created this recipe I’ve learned more about this style of cooking and have access to better products (like the amazing THM Baking Blend) so although it was good before it is so much better now in terms of texture and flavor that I would trade it for a real cheese dog any day. It is more moist and delicious now and also so easy to make because it mixes up in one bowl.

Cheesy Hot Dog Pie
- 1 cup almond flour
- 3/4 cup THM Baking Blend (if you're out try this recipe)
- 2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (8 oz.)
- 2 jalapeños, finely diced (optional)OR instead of the cheddar and jalapeños just sub in Pepper Jack
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 large eggs
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt (0% or 2%)
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 package of Hebrew National beef hot dogs
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Grease a 9- x 13-inch glass baking dish.
- In a large bowl toss together the cheese, flours, baking powder, and salt.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry, stirring until well combined.
- Pour the batter into the baking dish, spreading evenly.
- Arrange the hot dogs on top of the casserole and they bake right in. I like to leave the tops showing so I'll know where to cut so each piece gets a piece of hot dog.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the edges are brown and the breading is fully set.
