Everybody knows that pigs in a blanket are made with hot dogs, right? Well, I tried to re-imagine this recipe with a Hawaiian-style burger (the Hawaiian twist comes simply by adding pineapple). This dish is sweet and savory, with a crunchy dough that is perfect for a morning or afternoon snack.

For the burger patty, I used my recipe for homemade pork burger patty with breadcrumbs. You could use this—or any other burger patties you have on hand.

  • 2 homemade pork burger patties with breadcrumbs
  • 2 pineapple rings
  • 2 slices sweet ham

  • 1/4 + 1/8 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

This recipe is enough to make the "blankets" for two burgers.

  1. Prepare the dough mix. Let it rest for 5 minutes, then cover with a damp kitchen cloth.
  2. Cut the dough mix into four equal parts.
  3. Roll out each part so that it is a bit bigger than the burger patty.
  4. Stack the burger patty, cheese, pineapple rings, and ham on top of the rolled-out dough.
  5. Cover everything with another layer of rolled-out dough.
  6. Pre-heat the oven at 400°F.
  7. Continue working on the second burger.
  8. Bake it in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Remove the bread from the oven. Brush the top of the bread with melted butter, if preferred.

Tips and Techniques

  1. Add more cheese if you want.
  2. Replace mozzarella cheese with your favorite cheese.
  3. Bake the dough until golden brown or crusty outside. Adjust the cooking time if needed.
  4. Try our cheesy footlong pigs in a blanket recipe.

      This is a unique recipe with the added pineapple to the bread and meat. I think it would be very good. Thanks.

      Hi Liz,

      It tasted so great! I love the bread muffin as well especially in UK. It do have a soft texture that perfectly match everything.

      This looks like a great recipe. It could catch on replacing the bread muffin with the dough instead.
