Sausage in a Blanket (Hot Dogs) with BreadIn5 Dough

Use your homemade bread dough to wrap sausages (or hot dog weiners) to make epic and amazing hot dogs. I love how simple these are to make and they taste so great. I love to make a large batch and freeze them as they're so simple to toss in the fridge the night before to thaw for lunches.

  • 1/4 - 1 batch BreadIn5 (or alternative bread recipe)
  • 1 package Sausages or hot dog weiners precooked
  • Toppings: cheese, spinach, or swiss chard (optional)
  • Condiments: ketchup, ranch, or mustard (optional)
  • Any other heatable toppings (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit either now or you can wait until after you make the hot dogs if you want them to have time to rise later.

  2. Make your bread dough. I used the bread in five dough which can be made a week in advance but needs to be a minimum of two hours ahead of when you want to use it.

  3. Lay out your baking tray and, optionally, cover it with a silpat or some parchment paper.

  4. Flour your surface. You can either grab a ball of dough, roll it out, and cut it into triangles, with a pizza cutter or pastry cutter wheel, leaving them large enough to be able to wrap your around sausage. Alternatively, you could grab a piece and roll it out like a snake if you want to wrap the sausages up like a mummy.

  5. At this point the bread can be left plain or spread with condiments and topped with cheese or something else.

  6. Add your sausage or hot dog wiener to the bread and wrap it up. If you have trouble getting the bread to close you could always use a dab of water, or the escaping condiments, to wet the bread enough to glue it together. Once you wrap it up place it on the cooking tray with the opening facing down to keep it from opening.

  7. Once you finish making all of your hot dog rolls you can either throw them in the preheated oven or cover them up with a clean and lint-free kitchen towel so they have more time to rise. Also perfect if you happen to forgot to preheat your oven.

  8. Bake the rolls for 35 minutes or until done. Make sure to check occasionally in case yours are done sooner than mine.

  9. And enjoy! They are really hot so be careful while eating them.
