  • 8 frozen dinner rolls defrost them according to package directions
  • 8 hot dogs {all beef is our preference}
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • coarse salt
  • Ketchup and/or honey mustard sauce
  1. Defrost rolls according to package directions.
  2. Roll each dinner roll into an 18 inch rope. Wind each one around a hot dog from top to bottom.
  3. Press the dough onto itself at top and bottom so it doesn't unroll.
  4. Boil 3 quarts of water. Carefully pour soda into boiling water. Place 2 wrapped pretzel dogs into the water for about 30 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon to a cooling rack. Repeat until all pretzel dogs are boiled. Place boiled pretzel dogs on a sprayed baking sheet.
  5. Combine egg and water and mix well. Brush pretzel 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.
