Let the kids help with this fun recipe. It would make a perfect after school snack.

Prep Time: 20-30 min (not including thaw time)
Bake Time: 20 min
Skills: Beginning


  1. Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
    hot dogs
    sliced cheese
    black beans


Combine two rolls and flatten into a 7 x 5-inch rectangle. Place on a sprayed baking sheet.

Place a hot dog on the dough and roll the dough around the hot dog leaving excess dough on one end to make the head. Pinch a small tail on the other end of the dog.

Pinch the dough together behind the head to form the neck.

Cut another roll into three pieces. The first piece is slightly larger than ½ of the roll. The other two pieces are half of what is left.

Roll the larger piece into a 6-inch rope that is very thin in the center. Lay the rope over the pinched neck and flatten the ends to make the ears.

Roll the other two pieces into 4-inch ropes that are thin in the center but have small balls on the ends. Place these under the dog to make the feet.

Repeat steps to make as many dogs as desired.

Bake at 350°F 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Use cheese, black beans and olives for eyes and nose.

this is not as easy as you make it look. it was a big hairy mess. the rolls stuck to everything so we had to flour the surfaces, then they wouldn't stick to themselves. there was no time given for how long to thaw the rolls. cute idea but needs work!

I have noticed the rolls get sticky if they thaw too much. I find it best to kneed them together after about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Any longer than that then they are too warm and sticky.
