Little hands can help transform sausages and breadstick dough into bugs almost too cute to eat!
Updated Jan 12, 2007

Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough; separate at perforations into 12 breadsticks. With knife or kitchen scissors, cut each breadstick in half crosswise, making 24 pieces.
  • 2
    Wrap each piece of dough around center of each sausage, pinching to seal and leaving each end of sausage showing. Place seam side down and 1/2 inch apart on ungreased large cookie sheet.
  • 3
    Bake 11 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; place on serving plate or tray. Cool 2 minutes.
  • 4
    Insert shoestring potatoes into baked dough to resemble legs and antennae. Decorate "bugs" with dots or stripes of ketchup.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To make decorating easier, spoon the ketchup, barbecue sauce and mustard into separate small food-storage plastic bags. Seal the bags and cut a tiny hole in one bottom corner of each bag. Squeeze the bags to decorate the "bugs."
