UPDATE*** As the submitter of this recipe I would suggest to those of you worried about over browning bottoms, to use two cookie sheets together to bake on. My baking sheets are a heavy gauge metal and I also use a silpat on top of that so mine bake up just right. However, if you have a thin sheet, doubling up will help insulate the bottom and prevent over browning issues. Parchment paper will keep dough from sticking but I do suggest a good spray with PAM prior to use.*** These are easy and fun. My kid love 'em! We have made different kinds.... Turkey, beef, sausage, cheese....kids like the cheese dogs best! These never last long so I make a double batch and individually freeze the second batch for a special lunch treat! When I freeze for lunches I leave the salt off as it causes the bread to "sweat" while defrosting. The dough is also wonderful for regular pretzel or bite size pretzels. I highly recommend the recipe "Clone of a Pretzel Dip" from this site to accompany the pretzel bites!
AMAZING! These are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I was surprised at just how easy they were to make and fun too. I made half the recipe because there was only two of us. It was perfect for one package of hot dogs. The grandkids are going to love them. Thank you WFDM for sharing your AMAZING recipe and a special thank you for recommending my dip! UPDATE - Today I made the pretzel dogs with cheese. I used American cheese which I sliced with a pizza wheel making it thinner than the dough strips. I pressed the cheese into the dough strips a little then wrapped the dogs. It was necessary to seal the edges between the strips so they would hold up in the water. This all worked well; but when I baked them the cheese oozed out the ends. I posted a photo to show the oozing cheese. They tasted great but my conclusion is they really don't need the cheese. I made these to freeze because I found that they freeze so well. I put them in the microwave frozen and heat at half power. They taste as good as fresh baked! Try these you don't know what you're missing!
Wow my Hubby and his kids LOVED these! And so did I of course :p I DID NOT have a bread machine but I DO have a heavy duty mixer. I did the first 3 steps as directed except I had all the ingredients together in the bowl with the paddle attachment of my mixer until well incorporated. I replaced the paddle with the dough hook and set it on medium low speed for about 6 minutes to knead the dough. After that I covered the dough with plastic wrap and let it sit at room temp for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, until it doubled in size. I did everything else as instructed.
Perfect just perfect! My daughter helped me make these and we had so much fun! With the exception of using my KA mixer to knead the dough (no bread machine) and then letting it rise for an hour I followed the directions exactly. The pretzel dogs came out perfectly and were so good! We had a selection of mustards for dipping but they are really good on their own thanks WFDM?! Addendum...tonight we had some of these that I had frozen. I wrapped one loosely in a paper towel and microwaved at 70% power for a minute. They came out very fresh tasting.
AWESOME!!!!! These were almost too simple to make. I halved the recipe for 1 package of hot dogs, and actually made my dough the night before and refrigerated it. A couple of hours before I was ready to make them, I pulled out the dough to allow it to get to room temp...PERFECT! I used a pizza cutter to cut the strips of dough and that worked out great. I served them with assorted mustards. My family LOVED these, and that makes this a definate do-over recipe. Thanks, WFDM, for a keeper! :)
Every once in awhile I make something that is so delicious that I can't believe that it is the work of my own hands. These delicious dogs are the perfect example of this! Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. I do not own a bread machine so I did knead it by hand for about 10 minutes and then let the dough rise for just over an hour. Perfection! I used a pack of 7 hot dogs and made pretzels out of the rest of the dough. I can't wait to make this recipe again.
Made these for a 4th of July get together with friends. When I was asked to bring hot dogs they left it up to me as to what to bring thinking I was going to stay traditional.....hee hee....These were a huge hit even from the "non hot dog" eaters. I made 20 out of this recipe and still had extra dough. Didn't bring any home and for the first time I do believe that the hamburgers took a back seat. Thanks so much WFDM for such a great recipe. I'm making more to stock the freezer.
Very good. I wrapped organic hotdogs & also made bite-sized ones some with sausage slices & some with jalapeno slices. (Next time I'll try wrapping the jal. ones so that water can't make them mushy; also will try finely chopping them to add to dough as jalapeno tasted great with the pretzel dough.)
