It’s not a patriotic cookout without hot dogs, but a plain dog in a bun, or even with a little ketchup and mustard, can be boring when eaten all summer long. These tasty hot dog bread sticks will save your franks from the boring bun, and are much more fun to eat!



  1. Stick a skewer all the way through each of your hot dogs, leaving about an inch and a half exposed out of the top of each hot dog.
  2. 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 a silpat (non-stick baking liner) or parchment paper, and bake according to the package directions for the breadstick dough (about 20 minutes at 350ºF).
  3. Using a small star cookie cutter, cut out your stars out of the cheese. (Note: depending on how big or small your cookie cutter is will determine how many stars you get out of each slice of cheese).
  4. After your hot dogs have cooled for 2-3 minutes, stick the star through the skewer at the top.
