From Pillsbury Halloween 2005, these look really cute in the picture. I'm guessing that my grandkids will love them!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (11 ounce) can Pillsbury refrigerated breadsticks (12 breadsticks)
  • 12 large hot dogs
  • cooking spray
  • mustard or ketchup, if desired


  1. Heat oven to 375°F
  2. Unroll dough; separate at perforations into 12 breadsticks.
  3. With knife or kitchen scissors, cut each breadstick lengthwise and crosswise into 4 pieces, making a total of 48 pieces of dough.
  4. Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog to resemble "bandages," stretching dough slightly to completely cover hot dog.
  5. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate “bandages” so hot dog shows through for face.
  6. Place wrapped hot dogs on ungreased large cookie sheet; spray dough lightly with cooking spray.
  7. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot.
  8. With mustard, draw features on “face.".
  9. Makes: 12 sandwiches.
  10. Kitchen Tips:.
  11. Just for fun, to create Hot Dog Mummies on Sticks, push a flat wooden stick with rounded ends into the end of each hot dog before wrapping it in the dough.

I made my own bread dough for this, as I have never found Pilsbury stuff here in Australia ( so unfair!!)....using a soft Italian breadstick recipe.<br/>These came out so well...and the children thought that they were fabulous. DH and I thought that they were pretty tasty too, and it really was a novel change from the regular hotdog/bun scenario.<br/>A keeper fro sure....thanks lazyme!<br/>Made for PRMR.

I knew there was a recipe for something like this! I was planning on making my homemade bagel dog recipe for my preschooler's first big costume party that she and her BFF were hosting, but with all the food I was making, I just ran out of time to rise, boil and bake dough. I grabbed a few cans of refrigerated breadsticks at the store and basically did what your recipe says to do with them...., so you win the review! :D I used cocktail weenies instead of full-sized hot dogs, and cut each breadstick in half lengthwise only. I never even thought to make faces on them, so next time I will definitely do that! I'm glad you posted this recipe, lazyme, so I can add it to my cookbook and make it again sometime. Even for someone that doesn't usually eat dough from a can, I enjoyed these, and they were super easy to make. :D
