Rhodes Curly Dogs & {Giveaway Closed}

My kid's are in their 4 week of school, so it's safe to say that everyone is finally easing back into their regular routines. The beginning of the school year can be crazy, but so can summer break. Everyone is kind of in limbo doing and eating whatever they want.

One of our biggest challenges during the school year is getting back on track and eating breakfast before the sun rises. Both my kids are used to eating breakfast after sleeping in all summer long. It's a battle, but I don't want them going off to school hungry. 
By the time lunch rolls around they're pretty hungry, and down right starving when they return home. 

When my son gets off the bus, and heads through the door he immediately drops his back pack, removes his shoes and heads straight for the kitchen. There isn't too much time between my sons arrival and when were headed off to pick up my daughter, so having something ready to snack on has been a lifesaver.

In order to avoid consuming junk food I've been making a few fun snacks for the kids while they're still at school. These fun Curly Dogs pictured above are one of my sons favorites. I found them in the Kid's Ideas with Frozen Dough Cookbook. It's packed full of fun and easy bread dough recipes that your kids can make. 

All of the recipes are easy to read with lots of "how to" photos. The Silly Face Pizza's above is on my list next, because my son loves mini pizzas. I also want to try a breakfast pizza version as well. Stop by and check out the Rhodes New Kid's Baking Site for more kid friendly snacks, recipes, and treats.  They even have a holiday section with some pretty neat ideas.  

Lets get started and make some curly dogs. My son Carson prepared the whole recipe from start to finish, so this one is easy peasy my friends. Start by removing the frozen rolls and defrost them on the counter until the rolls are thawed, but still cold. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with non stick spray or use parchment paper. Roll each roll into an 8-10 inch rope. 

Twist the dough around each hot dog and tuck the ends under the dough. 

Place on a baking sheet.  

Bake the curly dogs for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven, cool slightly and serve with ketchup and mustard. 

Rolling the dough around hot dogs also make fun Mummy Dogs for Halloween. We usually use crescent roll dough, but the bread dough taste much better. Stop by the Rhodes Bake n Serve Blog where I'm guest posting and sharing this recipe. Before you go I'm hosting a giveaway here on Mommy's Kitchen. See below for all the detail and how to enter.

The best recipe I've ever made through Rhode's is their Baked Spaghetti Bread. It is so ridiculously delicious, and very easy to make. The only changes I make are that I add hamburger to my spaghetti, and I use shredded mozzarella rather than cubed. The recipe is found here: http://www.rhodesbread.com/blog/blog/braided-spaghetti-bread

I love using frozen bread for so many things. But, I think my favorite is a German Breakfast Cake my mother always made.
I taught my son to cook and now I'm teaching my granddaughter. I think children love to help and teaching them early gets them off to a good start.

I like making rolls. I could live on rolls, and Rhodes works well as they are thawed when I get home from work. I make cheddar/garlic rolls and plain rolls. Really, I can't seem to have a meal without a roll. LOVE!

Our Christmas morning tradition is Monkey Bread with maraschino cherries and roasted pecans! I cut the dough balls into quarters, roll in melted butter, then cinnamon sugar then layer with the cherries and nuts in a bundt cake pan, drizzle with half stick of melted butter and bake! Yum yum yum! I tried to skip it one year and ended up having to make it for dinner!

My son loves to help in the kitchen. He is only 4 and is such a huge help. He has to be sure everything is going good and I always have to leave the light on in the oven so he can watch what we have made together cook. My favorite frozen dough recipe would be anything with puff pastry. I love working with it.

Helen said... #

We use to take biscuits and fry them instead of baking them and put them in a bag with cinnamon and sugar and shake them up.

Ashley-Raye said... #

It would be a tie between monkey bread and calzones!

Deb K said... #

We like to make cinnamon rolls~they smell so good!

I love making Monkey Bread with the kids with thawed frozen bread dough. It's so easy ans (the best part) the kids get to get messy dipping the balls into the butter and sugar and I get to keep my hands unsticky! LOL

My daughter, Hannah is 7 years old and is my cooking helper, baking creative assistant and professional snuggler with me during our favorite cooking shows! The best recipe that we ever made with frozen bread dough is a savory herb (from our garden) and butter glazed medley that we finished baking in the oven! It was delicious.

My boy just loves rolling the dough. That's one of the best way to keep my child busy while still being productive :)
