I know what you’re thinking. You just can’t handle the gourmet dish I’ve got for you today. It’s too much, I know. I understand if you are intimidated and have to leave.
But yes, your eyes do not deceive you – those are soft pretzels wrapped around hot dogs. And I have to say, they were pretty delicious. But what’s not delicious with soft, chewy, salty dough wrapped around it? If you’re looking for a way to spice up those hot dogs that I know you have on your 4th of July menu, try these! I guarantee they’ll be eaten up before you even know what’s happening.
I made the dough in my bread machine (obviously) but it seems like an easy enough dough to hand knead as well. Also, when I made my pretzel bites I had a commenter say that instead of boiling pretzels in baking soda water, she uses a spray bottle of baking soda & water and it works out the same. I did have a couple hot dogs try to unroll themselves when I boiled them so the spray bottle method might be a good idea.
