Hot Dog Rattlesnake


  • 1 16-ounce package of hot dogs
  • 1 can of large refrigerated flaky biscuits (contains 8) at room temperature
  • Honey mustard
  • Everything bagel seasoning (optional)
  • Toothpicks
  • Green olives with pimento
  • Anything to make a tongue: bell pepper, pepperoni, sun-dried tomato


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Pop open the can, and separate the biscuits from each other. Flatten them slightly either with your hands, or very lightly with a rolling pin. Brush with a thin layer of honey mustard (use a pastry brush), and sprinkle with a little of everything bagel seasoning. Cut each biscuit into quarters.
  3. Slice the hot dogs into quarters, too.
  4. To create each bite, place a piece of hotdog in the center of a biscuit quarter. Bring the opposite two points of biscuit across the top of the hot dog, and press to seal. Secure it with a toothpick. Repeat with the remaining hot dog and biscuit pieces.
  5. Arrange your creation on a parchment or silicone mat-lined baking sheet, in the shape of a snake.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden brown. Decorate with two olives for eyes, and a piece of bell pepper/pepperoni/sundried tomato for the tongue. Serve!
