Pretzel Dogs

Every once in awhile we do "Fair Food Night". It can get very unhealthy like funnel cakes and corn dogs. But one of the more healthy options are pretzel dogs. I can make the soft pretzel recipe with wheat flour and grab beef or kosher hot dogs for this supper treat :-)

First, make the soft pretzel recipe, but only let it rise for the first 30 minutes. Remember, this won't double the size of the pretzel dough ball.

Next, pinch off sections necessary to roll then wrap your hot dogs up to 2 rotations (a small dinner roll amount is pretty good for thick hot dogs).

Remember these do a round of rising and you may not want them too thick (depending on your bread to meat ratio preferences).

Lay the dogs onto lightly greased baking sheets and brush them with baking soda water. Let them rise till the breading looks puffy because they will puff up when they hit that preheated 450* oven. Cook 10-15 minutes till the pretzel part tans and the dogs are sweating. Serve with your favorite condiments and enjoy :-)

1 1/2 cup warm water (120-130*)
2 tsp active dry yeast
2 Tbsp brown sugar
4 cups bread flour (if you go AP, sift it) - See more at: http://www.kayslittlekorner.com/2013/03/soft-pretzels.html#sthash.27NDs7BR.dpuf


  1. Those look totally yummy and I'm sure much healthier than the ones you would get at the fair.

    1. Yes, they are healthier, but I will confess to some greasy corn dogs every once in a while ;-)

  2. Those look like a fun supper!

    1. I have the kids roll them up, and that makes this supper ready pretty fast ;-)

  3. They sell pretzel dogs at the Amish Market, but I've yet to have one! There's always a loooooong line for them. Never occurred to me to try to make 'em myself, ha. Great idea, Kay!


    1. That's where I got the idea!!! Now we are hooked on them ;-)


Thank you for your kind thoughts!!
