Pretzel Dogs #Breadbakers

For Bread Bakers this month our Host by Stacy Livingston Rushton, choose the theme "Pretzels".  Thank you Stacy for hosting this month's event.

Pretzel Dogs are so easy and quick to make.  Used my earlier Pretzel dough recipe and halved it. The only difference is that this time used milk and fresh yeast. They make a perfect brunch or an evening meal. You can enjoy them with any sauce of your liking. 
I enjoyed them with Hot Sriracha Sauce. This was my Sunday's  dinner.  

Make 7 Pretzel Dogs  

1/2  Cup Milk
1.3/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Fresh Yeast
Extra Warm water if required
Coarse Salt for Sprinkling - Optional
Melted Butter for brushing
5  Pork Frankfurters

2 Tablespoons Baking Soda

Pat dry the hot dogs with a kitchen towel. Keep aside

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix till everything until well-combined. Knead the dough for 10 minutes, until it’s soft, smooth. Oil a bowl and place the dough (so it doesn't stick),cover with a cling film and allow it to rest till it doubles in volume.

While the dough is resting, prepare the “Baking Soda solution” mix 1 cup boiling water with 2 tablespoons baking soda, stirring until the soda is totally dissolved. Set the mixture aside to cool to lukewarm.

After  the dough doubles in volume , transfer the dough to a lightly greased work surface.

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees . Prepare a baking sheet by spraying it with vegetable oil spray, or lining it with butter paper.

Divide the dough into eight equal pieces.  
Shape each piece into a long rope about 2 feet and then lightly flatten it then roll it around the hot dog. 
Let the beginning end be underneath the dough. Gently roll and see that it overlaps and continue till the other end. 
The end should stick to the bottom of the hot dog. They should look like mummies. Let them rest, covered, for 10 minutes.
Pour the baking soda - water solution into a square pan.
Working with a hot dog pretzel at a time, roll them in the baking soda-water solution. and place them back on to the baking sheet . 
This silicone sheet is 10 years old.

Sprinkle it with a pinch of coarse salt or pretzel salt . 
Since I, had only 5 Pork Frankfurters, made two small mini buns with the remaining dough. 
Bake the pretzels for 18 to 20 minutes, or until they’re golden brown at 200 degrees . 
When out of the oven brush them with melted butter on top and the sides.
Enjoy the pretzels warm .
Amazingly delicious and so easy to make! 

Dip them in ketchup, sriracha sauce, cream cheese dip or with just mustard sauce.
