Cute Treat for the Fourth of July
Firecracker Dogs by Handmade in the Heartland
1 can refrigerated breadstick dough
2 packages of hot dogs (16 total)
16 thick slices colby cheese
First take your skewers and stick them all the way through your hot dogs leaving about an inch and a half exposed out of the top of each hot dog. Then take a piece of breadstick dough and carefully wrap it around the hot dog until you get to the top. Place the wrapped dogs on parchment paper and bake according to the package directions for the breadstick dough. It took us about 20 minutes at 350.
While the hot dogs are cooking, take out your cheese slices. The key to this step is to go to your grocer’s deli counter and ask for them to slice you pieces of cheese that are 1/4″-3/8″ thick. Then using a small star cookie cutter cut out your stars.
After your dogs have cooled for 2-3 minutes stick the star through the skewer at the top.
