Hot Dog Rolls

Here’s a fun alternative to the traditional hot dogs. These rolls are fun to make and I’m sure your children will love them. They are so cute and adorable, and when I saw them I just had to make them. By now you probably know how much I love to bake and if I see something different, I’m eager to try it.

This recipe will make 6 rolls and each hot dog roll weighs in at 10 weight watchers points, a great breakfast or lunch idea.

As with any bread recipe, we start out by making the yeast mixture, so in a small bowl mix the water, yeast and sugar together and let it sit for about 10 minutes until it starts bubbling. In another larger bowl, mix the flour with the salt.

In a small bowl melt the butter and add the egg and whisk it well.

Add the wet ingredients to the flour, including the yeast mixture and mix. You can use your mixer here, but I just kneaded the dough by hand. Add more flour as needed, I used 2 cups of flour, but if you need more, just add some more. Place the dough in an oiled bowl.

Cover the bowl with a clean towel and let it rest until it doubles in size.

Cut the dough into 6 equal pieces and shape each piece into a ball. Roll out each piece into a small rectangle and place a hot dog in the middle of the dough, then just wrap the dough around the hot dog, covering it well.

Cut each covered hot dog, into 1/2 inch pieces, cut the hot dog all the way through, but stop as you reach the dough. Take each piece and roll it out and shape it into a flower as in the picture below.

Repeat with remaining hot dogs. Place rolls on a baking lined with parchment paper or a silpat. Brush each roll with egg wash and top with cheddar cheese, parsley and green onions.

Bake in a preheat oven at 375 F degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve these warm and enjoy.
