Fourth of July Firecracker Hot Dogs

From Handmade in the Heartland

Fourth of July Firecracker Hot Dogs

Ingredients

  1. 1 can refrigerated breadstick dough
  2. 16 hot dogs
  3. 16 thick slices colby cheese
  4. 16 skewers
  1. Special equipment:
  2. Star cookie cutter
  3. Wooden skewers

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Take a skewer and stick it all the way through the center of the hot dog length-wise, leaving about an inch and a half exposed out of the top of each hot dog. Take a piece of breadstick dough and wrap it around the hot dog in a spiral shape until you reach the top, leaving gaps in between each spiral. Repeat with the rest of the hot dogs and lay them on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake hot dogs for about 20 minutes, or until the breadsticks are golden brown.
  4. While the hot dogs are baking, use a star cookie cutter to cut out stars approximately an inch in diameter. Let the hot dogs cool and then place 1 cheese star at the top of each hot dog in the part of the skewer that's sticking out of the top.
  5. Display the hot dogs using a styrofoam ball so they can stick straight up like firecrackers. Serve with ketchup and mustard.
