Hot Dogs

1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated soft breadsticks

6 premium hot dogs


Ketchup, if desired

Mustard, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

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

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    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.

  4. STEP 4

    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.

  5. STEP 5

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