Caterpillar Hot Dogs

A few weeks ago I came across a recipe for something called Caterpillar Bread. It's not just bread, though - it's more like a fancy homeade hot dog wrap-up. I knew that the fun of making these would fit my enjoyment of cooking and baking, while the hot dogs would fit Nathan's enjoyment of, well, hot dogs. So naturally I had to make these twisty little creations. They turned out to be quite tasty!

I served them drizzled with mustard and ketchup.

Healthy? No. But a very fun treat! The recipe makes enough dough to wrap up a full package of 8 hot dogs, plus a little left over which you can shape into rolls. Nathan and I had these for dinner two nights last week; three for him and one for me each time... a perfect way to use a package of hot dogs. (Note: The recipe calls for pork floss, which I didn't use. I also used less sugar than the dough recipe called for.)


  1. those look SO yummy that at 10am in the morning I want to eat them.

  2. Oooh, now that looks yummy and fun! I have a package of hot dogs in the fridge that I was going to use for homemade pigs in a blanket, but maybe I'll do this instead.
