Hot Dogs on a Stick

Food on a stick delights kids of all ages. These hot dogs are one of those quick and easy recipes that can double as as a snack or a casual meal. It never ceases to amaze me whose first to grab one of these to eat.

  • This recipe takes so few ingredients, make sure you start with a quality hot dog. I’m a bit partial to Nathan’s for these handheld hot dogs.
  • These hot dogs are very much like pretzel dogs without the fuss thanks to frozen bread dough.
  • The frozen bread dough that I used for this recipe are made by Rhodes brand. You can certainly use  your favorite brand. Using thawed frozen dinner rolls gives them the flavor of being wrapped in pretzel dough and there’s no bread making required.
  • This is a fun project to get the kids involved in the preparation. This is the epitome of simple kid friendly food.
  • I highly recommend that you serve these with a variety of seasoned ketchups and mustards and watch the kids go to town dipping them into their favorites. I’m willing to bet, it’s the big kids that’ll go first.

  1. I love this simple recipe Melissa. I’m going to sprinkle coarse salt on top of the dough and omit the sesame seeds. Can’t wait to be invited to bring a dish somewhere. It’s becomming that time of year (well maybe not yet- but soon).

  2. WOW I do prefer the pretzel taste over the crescent roll. My nieces and I will have fun trying this one.
    Thanks a Bunch Melissa, have a great weekend
