In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour, baking powder, and xanthan gum, if using. Stir in 1 egg, until uniform. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella and cubed cream cheese. Microwave for 90 seconds, stirring halfway through. Stir again at the end until well incorporated. (You can also heat in a double boiler on the stove if you prefer.)
Quickly before the cheese cools, add the melted cheeses to the almond flour mixture and knead with your hands, until a uniform dough forms, with no streaks.
If the dough is sticky, refrigerate for 30-60 minutes, until it’s more manageable.
Roll the dough into a thin rectangle, about 1/4 inch (.64 cm)thick. Cut the rectangle into 8 long strips, about 1/2 to 1 inch (1.27 to 2.54 cm) wide, then wrap them around the hot dogs. Place onto the baking sheet.
In a small bowl, whisk the remaining egg. Brush the pigs in a blanket with the egg. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and press gently to help them stick.
Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.
Serving size: 1 pig in a blanket
