Hot dogs in biscuit buns
This is an all-in-one hot dog and bun recipe. Make a simple biscuit dough, shape it into several rounds, form ropes, and wrap them around the hot dogs. You can insert a metal skewer into one end of the frank to hold and rotate over the embers or set the pastry-wrapped dogs on a wire rack.
|1||cup flour, or more if needed|
|Pinch of salt|
|2||teaspoons baking powder|
|½||cup milk (low-fat or whole) or water|
|Flour (for shaping)|
1. In a bowl, whisk the 1 cup flour, salt, and baking powder.
2. With your fingers work the butter into the flour until the butter is in coarse crumbs. Add the milk and stir with a fork until it forms a dough; it will be very sticky.
3. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of flour onto the top of the dough. Dip your fingers into the flour. Lightly knead the dough and form it into a ball. Divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll each into a ball.
4. Roll 1 ball between your palms to create an 8-inch rope. Starting from the top, wrap the dough around the hot dog in a spiral. Pinch the dough together at the top and bottom to keep the dough from uncoiling during cooking. Repeat with the remaining hot dogs and remaining dough.
5. Set a wire rack on top of the log stand so the rack does not touch the embers. With a fireplace tool, disperse the embers so they are about 2 inches from the bottom of the rack. Set the hot dogs on the rack. Cook, turning every minute for about 6 minutes, until the
pastry is puffed and lightly golden. Watch carefully so the pastry does not burn. Adapted from “The Kids Campfire Cookbook”
