Soft Pretzel Doggies

Yesterday was another busy day and because I lacked inspiration and time when the supper hour approached I took my daughters suggestion and made soft pretzels. I didn't think the pretzels themselves would be enough and everyone loves a pretzel dog, right? So I decided to make doggie pretzels. I served them with watermelon and while I know this wasn't what you would consider the healthiest fare, in my defense I buy ONLY the Oscar Meyer Selects Black Angus Hot Dogs. They have no Nitrates, no Nitrites, AND no added MSG! ☺They are a little more expensive but definitely worth it! Check them out sometime.

Heres the recipe:
1 Tablespoon Instant Yeast
1¼ cups warm water
½ cup brown sugar
2 cups Occident flour
1¾-2 cups all purpose flour
pinch of salt
3 teaspoons baking soda
1½ cups water
Butter for brushing, melted

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar, then add flours and salt. Knead well. Let rise for 20 minutes. Meanwhile heat the water and baking soda until the soda is dissolved.

Cut into strips and roll into ropes. Take a hot dog and wrap the rope around it. Dip into water/soda mixture and place on a parchment paper lined baking pan. Also leave plain for the hot dog rolls. Bake the hot dog pretzels in a 400° oven for 12-15 minutes.

After they are done brush them with melted butter and enjoy!

  11. Looks so yummy, thanks for sharing. One question -- I wasn't sure what Occident flour was, when I looked it up it said it was the same as all-purpose flour, but then I see APF listed as a separate ingredient. I assume you just combine amounts for a total of 3-3/4 to 4 cups of all-purpose flour?

    I think these could be a BIG hit around my house full of boys!
