Hello again! This is Tina from Mommy’s Kitchen and I’m back sharing an easy Rhodes recipe. My kid's are in their 4th week of school, so it's safe to say that everyone is finally easing back into their regular routines. The beginning of the school year can be crazy, but so can summer break. Everyone is kind of in limbo doing and eating whatever they want.
One of our biggest challenges during the school year is getting back on track and eating breakfast before the sun rises. Both my kids are used to eating breakfast after sleeping in all summer long. It's a battle, but I don't want them going off to school hungry. By the time lunch rolls around they're pretty hungry, and downright starving when they return home.
When my son gets off the bus, and heads through the door he immediately drops his back pack, removes his shoes and heads straight to the kitchen. There isn't too much time between my sons arrival and when we head off to pick up my daughter, so having something ready to snack on has been a lifesaver.
In order to avoid consuming junk food I've been making a few fun snacks for the kids while they're still at school. These fun Curly Dogs pictured above are one of my sons favorites. I found them in the Kid's Ideas with Frozen Dough Cookbook which is packed full of fun and easy bread dough recipes that your kids can make.
All of the recipes are easy to read with lots of "how to" photos. The Silly Face Pizza's pictured above is on my list next, because my son loves mini pizzas. I also want to try a breakfast pizza version as well. Stop by and check out the Rhodes New Kid's Baking Site for more kid friendly snacks, recipes, and treats. They even have a holiday section with some pretty neat ideas.
Let’s get started and make some curly dogs. My son Carson prepared the whole recipe from start to finish, so this one is easy peasy my friends. Start by removing the frozen rolls and defrost them on the counter until the rolls are thawed, but still cold.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with non stick spray or use parchment paper. Roll each roll into an 8-10 inch rope.
Twist the dough around each hot dog and tuck the ends under the dough.
Place on a baking sheet.
Bake the curly dogs for 20 minutes or until golden brown
Remove from oven, cool slightly and serve with ketchup and mustard.

Cooks Note: Rolling the dough around hot dogs also make easy Mummy Dogs for Halloween. We usually use crescent roll dough, but I love the bread dough version so much better.
