Dog In A Dog

Let the kids help with this fun recipe. It would make a perfect after school snack. Click here for the full article.

Dog in a Dog

When I first saw this recipe I thought “wow that might be too hard” but when I started to get to work on it…it really came together A LOT easier than I expected.  I had my niece and nephew sleeping over so I thought it would be a fun thing for all of us to make together, plus dinner would be all ready when we finished our project…killing two birds with one stone.

To start you will need:

Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold

Hot Dogs

Sliced Cheese

Black Beans

Olives

I will tell you that if you don’t happen to have both black beans and olives that you can make the nose and eyes out of one or other.  I don’t really think you need both.

Combine two rolls and flatten into a 7X5-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.  (as you can see from the picture, some of ours look like other animals or mammals but the kids are young and had a BLAST making them).

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 lives for eyes and nose.

It was really funny that each of the kids ate their dogs in different ways.  One went straight for the head, one started in the middle.  One pulled off all the legs and ears and in the end my daughter could not bring herself to ever eat the cute little face on her dog.  She left it on the plate.  She said it was just too cute to eat.  (She doesn’t seem to have that problem with chocolate bunnies at Easter).

Give this recipe a try…I think you’ll have a great time with your kids or grandkids!

when are you suppose to put the eyes and nose on? What's the white stuff in the pictures? (eyes)

Hi Kim,

Love this recipe.

There is a blogger trying to pass it off as her own on facebook - I thought you'd like to know.
