Can I Use Any Type of Hot Dog? Yes. Go with beef, turkey, chicken or plant based. Just be sure to stick with one that is pre-coooked.

Can These Be Frozen? Yes. Place fully baked pretzel dogs in a freezer safe/covered container or storage bag. They will stay good for a couple of months. Simply reheat frozen pretzel dogs in the microwave or oven when you are ready to eat.

Pretzel Dogs- Table for Seven

How to Make:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the salt, sugar, warm water and yeast. Let it stand for about 5 minutes or until starts to foam.
  • Add in the flour and mix just to combine. If you have one, using a dough hook, knead the dough for about 5 minutes or until it starts to pull away from the side of the bowl and it’s smooth. If you don’t have a dough hook attachment, you can knead the dough by hand.
  • Transfer the dough to an oil bowl and cover. Let it rise in a warm place until it doubles in size. This should take about an hour.
  • Once it’s risen, preheat your oven and line a flat rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray that foil with non stick cooking spray.
  • Turn the risen dough out on a well floured surface and divided it into 8 equal pieces.
  • Take each one of those 8 pieces and roll into a rope. Each rope should be about 18-20 inches in size.
  • Wrap a rope of dough around a hot dog and seal the edges. Repeat with remaining dough and hot dogs.
  • Boil a pot of water with baking soda.
  • Place a dough wrapped hot dog in the boiling water mixture for just 30 seconds. Then, place it on your prepared baking sheet. Again, repeat with remaining hot dogs.
  • Brush the tops of the boiled/wrapped hot dogs with melted butter and sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Bake!
