Pretzel Dog Recipe
1 1/2 cups hot water
1 packet active dry or instant yeast
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and slightly cool
4+ cups all-purpose flour (extra for work surface)
1/2 cup baking soda
10 cups water
10 Sausage links or hot dogs
2 Cheddar cheese bricks
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, stir your yeast packet into 1 1/2 cups of hot water, mixing well. Add sugar, salt and melted butter. Slowly add in the flour, mixing well until you get a thick dough.
Flour your counter or other flat surface and knead the dough until it pops back out after poking it with your finger. Roll out the dough in small batches with a floured rolling pin.
Cut your sausages or hot dogs in half and slice your cheddar cheese into thin slices. If you are able to slice thin enough, you may only need one of the cheese bricks instead of two.
Place one sausage and one slice of cheese next to each other on the dough.
Wrap the pretzel dough around the sausage and cheese until the dough meets on the other side. Press together so that it holds.
In a large pot, mix your 1/2 cup of baking soda with 10 cups of water and bring it to a boil. Drop each pretzel dog into the pot of boiling water until it floats. Remove and place on a greased or lined baking dish or cookie sheet.
Beat one egg and brush it over each pretzel dog. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown.
