Ingredients

  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated breadsticks
  • 8 smoked sausage links or hot dogs
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup potato sticks
  • Ketchup and/or mustard

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Separate dough into strips. Unroll and cut eight strips in half widthwise; set remaining strips aside. Cut sausages in half widthwise. Wrap one piece of dough around each sausage, leaving the rounded end showing. Place seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Place reserved breadsticks on baking sheet.
  2. Bake 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove bugs to a serving plate and cool 2 minutes.
  3. Insert potato sticks into baked dough to resemble legs and antennae. Decorate with ketchup and/or mustard. Serve warm. Save remaining breadsticks for another use.
Editor's Note: Refrigerated crescent rolls may be used in place of the breadsticks. Follow package directions for baking temperature and time.
