Lately I haven’t been able to get enough Hot Dogs. Crazy, I know, but I can’t stop craving them. Recently I posted a recipe for yummy Corn Dogs and that was a big hit so I thought I would share with you my pretzel dog recipe.
MMM So yummy! My mouth is watering just looking at these pretzel dogs.
ANYWAYS, for the dough I used my bread maker but if you don’t have a bread maker you just make the dough the old-fashioned way – by hand.
2 C bread flour11/2 tsp active dry yeast1/4 tsp salt1/2 tsp sugar7/8 C water1-2 TBS coarse Salt1 egg, slightly beaten
Mix all ingredients except salt and egg. This is where a bread maker is wonderful because it takes care of all the mixing and kneading! When dough has doubled its size it is ready!
Preheat oven to 450
Divide dough into 12 pieces
Roll each ball into about an 8-10 inch rope and wrap around a hot dog
Place on a greased cookie sheet
Brush each dog with beaten egg and then sprinkle with coarse salt
Bake in preheated oven for 17-20 minutes till pretzel is browned.
Next time I make these I am going to try putting toppings on them like jalapeno pepper slices and cheese. MMMM I can’t wait!
