  • 8 frozen white bread rolls I used Rhodes
  • 1 package hot dogs or 8 polish sausages (little smokies work too)
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • salt 

 Cheesy Chili Dip -

  • 1/2 cup velveeta cheese
  • 1 can chili or 2 cups homemade leftover chili


  • Defrost and proof dough according to packaged directions (it took me 3 hours to get my dough to defrost and rise a little)Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a small bowl, dissolve baking soda in hot water. Set aside.
  • Cut hot dogs in half or into thirds if you want bite sized snacks. Form dough into 1 large ball. Divide dough into enough equal pieces to cover all pieces of hot dogs.
  • Smooth dough over hot dog pieces and dip into baking soda water. Arrange on greased baking sheet. Sprinkle salt over top. Bake 12-15 minutes or until dough is darker golden brown. Serve with cheesy chili dip (below), or usual hot dog condiments. 
  • For the dip, microwave Velveeta and chili for 1-2 minutes until velveeta is completely melted. Serve with pretzel dog dippers or tortilla chips.
