    Pierce a skewer through the center of the hot dog length-wise, leaving about an inch and a half exposed out of the top.

    Wrap a piece of breadstick dough in a spiral shape around the hot dog from top to bottom, leaving gaps in between each spiral. Repeat with the rest of the hot dogs and lay them on the baking sheet.

    Bake hot dogs for about 20 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown.
