Pretzel Dogs

Pretzel Dogs

Next up, Pretzel Dogs!  This are a fun meal for any age, they remind me of shopping malls because of places like Auntie Anne's Pretzels.  Mike and I really enjoyed these, and I think you will too!

You will need:
1 batch of pretzel dough (recipe below)
12 hotdogs

1.  Divide dough into 12 equal parts.

2.  Roll each piece of dough into a long rope, about 10 inches.

3.  Wrap dough around hot dog and secure ends with a toothpick to keep the dough in place.

4.  Sprinkle the tops of the dough with salt.

5.  Bake at 350 for 22 minutes, until golden brown.  Serve with ketchup.

Pretzel Dough

You will need:
1 teaspoon yeast
1-1/2 cups warm water (100-110 degrees)
4-1/2 cups flour
1-3/4 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons olive oil (can substitute vegetable oil or melted margarine/butter)

1.  In a small bowl, combine yeast and water, stirring until yeast dissolves.  Let it sit for 5 minutes.

2.  In your mixer bowl, combine flour, salt and brown sugar.

3.  Pour in yeast mixture and add oil.  Mix on low speed for 1 minute.

4.  Switch to dough hook and mix on  low speed for 2 minutes.  Let dough rest for 5 minutes.

5.  Continue mixing dough on medium-low speed for 3 minutes until a slightly tack ball of dough forms.

6.  Form dough into ball and place in a lightly oiled bowl.  Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or for up to 4 days.

This was the second installment of things to make with pretzel dough.  See the others here:
