Hot Dogs

1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated soft breadsticks
6 hot dogs


Ketchup, if desired
Mustard, if desired


Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

Separate breadsticks at perforations to form 12 strips. Wrap 1 strip around each hot dog. Place hot dogs onto prepared baking sheet so that ends of breadsticks are under hot dogs.

Cut 1/4 inch piece of dough off each of the remaining 6 strips; reserve for feelers. Cut each strip in half crosswise; cut each in half again lengthwise. (You now have 24 pieces of dough.) Gently stretch each piece to 5 inches. Using 4 (5-inch) strips for each hot dog, form 2 loops on each side of hot dog to resemble butterfly wings.

Divide each piece of reserved dough in half; form into a feeler. Attach 2 feelers to underside of breadsticks at one end of each hot dog-butterfly.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove to cooling rack. Garnish as desired to decorate hot dogs to resemble butterflies.
