The 4th of July is right around the corner and this means three things: fireworks, hot dogs, and fun! I tried to combine all three into this easy, DSP-approved idea…Rocket Dogs!
I saw this on Disney’s Family Fun website and thought even a not-very-crafty DSP who doesn’t like to follow directions could make it.
Ingredients: hot dogs, cubed cheese, skewers, prepared breadstick dough (I used Pillsbury Crescent Rolls), mustard, ketchup, and tinfoil or ribbon for the “flames”.
Simply skewer the hot dogs and make sure a little pokes out the top for the cheese. Wrap the dough around the dogs to cover and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Cut cheese into triangles and skewer on top and then “stripe” with ketchup and mustard. Tie on foil or ribbon flames…you are ready for BLAST-OFF!
I made them with my kids and they were able to do most of the work except the skewers. We think they came out pretty darn festive and they tasted even better.
For goodness sake, you can wrap a piece of shoe leather in those crescent rolls and it would taste good.
Happy 4th of July to Domestic Square Pegs around the world!
