Rocket Hot Dogs

4th of July food is always delicious, but this hot dog recipe is spectacularly delicious!


  • 1 tube refrigerated bread stick dough
  • Hot dogs
  • Block cheese, any variety
  • Skewers, soaked in water
  • Curling ribbon


  • Skewer hot dog from top to bottom, running about an inch through the hot dog’s top. Make sure the skewers are soaked in water for 10 minutes in order to prevent burning in the oven.
  • Take a strip of bread stick dough and run the top of the skewer through one end of the strip.
  • Carefully wrap the dough around the hot dog.
  • Wrap the bottom of the dough around the stick. Repeat until desired number of Rocket Dogs have been prepared.
  • Place Rocket Dogs into preheated 375 degree oven for 10 minutes. 
  • While Rocket Dogs are in the oven, slice block cheese of any variety into small triangles, one for each Rocket Dog. 
  • When Rocket Dogs are baked, remove from oven. Stick a cheese triangle on top of the skewer, completing the rocket. If desired, tie curling ribbon to the bottom. Red, white, and blue ribbon give the Rocket Dogs an especially patriotic, enjoyable look.
  • Serve and enjoy your Rocket Hot Dogs at your next 4th of July or Memorial Day get-together.
