Okay so today I cheated. I totally cheated.
I did NOT try an entirely new recipe… rather I adapted my most recent post.
I found this amazing recipe for Soft Pretzels from Food Network’s Alton Brown and baked them up yesterday. They turned out so beautifully I altered the same recipe to make dinner for my family last night!
Who doesn’t love a pretzel dog? I made the pretzels according to the recipe I included in my Soft Pretzels post. After rolling the dough in to a 24 inch rope, I simply wrapped the dough around a thawed anddry hot dog. I used Hebrew National all beef hotdogs.
Continue following the original recipe, placing each dough covered hot dog in the boiling water for 30 seconds. Place on parchment covered baking sheet, brush on egg yolk wash, sprinkle some coarse salt on top, then bake for 12-14 minutes.
When doubling the recipe, (I had to because my family is so large) make the dough in separate batches. Otherwise your electric mixer may be in for a world of damage, EKE!
Let that pretzel dog cozy up to some deliciously spicy mustard, and ENJOY!
