Introduction: Pretzel Dogs
The perfect lunch for a picnic in the backyard.
Step 1: Ingredients
8 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
8 hot dogs
1/4 cup baking soda
2 tablespoons water
ketchup and mustard
Step 2: Instructions
Roll each dinner roll into an 18 inch rope. Wind each one around a hot dog from top to bottom. Press the dough onto itself at top and bottom so it doesn't unroll.
Boil 3 quarts of water. Carefully pour soda into boiling water. Place 2 wrapped dogs into the water for about 30 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon to a cooling rack. Repeat until all dogs are boiled. Place boiled dogs on a sprayed baking sheet.
Combine egg and water and mix well. Brush dogs with egg wash and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 450°F 6-8 minutes or until dark golden brown. Serve with ketchup and mustard.
