Our family really loves the soft pretzels and pretzel bites we've been making. Dipped in cheese sauce or just by themselves, once a batch comes out of the oven it hardly has a chance to cool before it's gone.
These Pretzel Dogs use that easy Soft Pretzel recipe. Enjoy!
1 batch of Soft Pretzels dough (Recipe HERE) prepared up to the point of shaping the pretzels.
8 bun length hot dogs, patted dry with a paper towel.
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Divide the dough into 8 pieces. Roll one piece of the dough into a long snake-like strand about 12 inches long. Flatten the roll with your fingers. Place the end of one hot dog at the end of the dough strip and roll at an angle until hot dog is all covered, leaving both ends visible but not much uncovered. Cut off any dough not needed to cover. Place on greased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and hot dogs. (If you have extra dough from what you cut off of the ends, you might be able to roll 2 more hot dogs)
Make the soda wash by heating 1/2 C. water and 1 T. baking soda in the microwave for 1 minute. Brush each Pretzel Dog with the soda wash and sprinkle with pretzel salt.
Let rise about 10 minutes and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
Serve with your favorite condiments!
