Piggy Hot Dog Bread
This time I decided to try to make bread in a different shape. I saw a picture of a hot dog shaped like a pig, so I wanted to see if it would work for me. I first made my bread dough in the bread machine. I used this recipe , but added a tablespoon of flax seed and chia seeds. While the machine was kneading, I cut up some hot dogs and made the noses. I made the nostrils using a straw, pinching the back of the straw when pulling back. When the dough was ready, I used it to cover the hot dogs. To make the eyes, I cut olives using the straw. After placing the eyes, I used little triangles of the dough to make the ears. After baked for 25 minutes, they were fully cooked, but still a little pale (I think because I placed them on the lower part of the oven. Some of them looked more like birds (I think). But they tasted very good and crunchy. I toasted a couple of them to brown the top. They don't all look perfect, but they made a happy dinner.
