Hot-Doggy Breadstix

by Dinner Hero on January 28, 2013

My mom was the first person I knew who made breadsticks out of hot dog buns.

As you might guess, my mom is a really good cook.  My kids like to eat at her house.  And if you ask my son which of MeMe’s foods is his favorite – he’ll say “Hot-Doggy Breadsticks”.  {Of all the foods, right mom?}

I changed the spelling to Breadstix because I’m a big fan of the show Glee.  If you don’t get it, it’s OK.  It has nothing to do with this recipe.

These breadstix cook “low and slow”.  I like to get them started in the middle of the afternoon.  They freeze well – just put them in a Ziplock bag and save them in the freezer for the next time.
