Dogs in a Sweater Recipe

For a new twist on an old favorite, try these skewered hot dogs wrapped with breadstick dough and baked. They're fun to dip in ketchup, mustard or ranch dressing. The dressed-up dog recipe comes kid-tested from the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated breadsticks
  • 12 wooden pop sticks
  • 12 hot dogs
  • Ketchup, mustard and/or ranch dressing

Directions

  • 1. Separate breadstick dough; roll each piece into a 15-in. rope. Insert a wooden pop stick into each hot dog lengthwise. Starting at one end, wrap dough in a spiral around hot dog; pinch ends to seal.
  • 2. Place 1 in. apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes. Serve with condiments of your choice. Yield: 12 servings.

"My husband and four year old son loved these. I thought they were ok, but since the other two enjoyed them, I will be making them again. I didn't use sticks and they still turned out great."

"I made these for a New Year's brunch. However, I used precooked turkey sausages I used the short skewers and 1/2 of a piece of bread stick dough to wrap around the sausages. In fact, I ran out of the bread sticks and also had a can of cressant rolls so I finished the last ones with the cressant rolls. I called them piggies in a sweater. There wasn't even one left to take home to snack on later. They were DEFINITELY a hit! Thanks."

"Simple recipe but very popular with kids. I left out the popsicle stick part and the kids still gobbled them up. Easy recipe for kids to help in the kitchen with."
