Dog in a Dog


  • Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
  • Hot dogs
  • Sliced cheese
  • Black beans
  • Olives


  1. Combine two rolls and flatten into a 7 x 5-inch rectangle. Place on a sprayed baking sheet.
  2. 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.
  3. Pinch the dough together behind the head to form the neck.
  4. Cut another roll into three pieces. The first piece is slightly larger than 1/2 of the roll. The other two pieces are half of what is left.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Repeat steps to make as many dogs as desired.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Use cheese, black beans and olives for eyes and nose.
