Everytime I go to the mall, I love to stop at one of food court stands where they sell pretzels. My favorite are the pretzel dogs. I ended up going to a local wholesale club and found that they sold a kit to make the pretzels and pretzel dogs at home from the same stand. While that was good, I ended up using all the ingredients up and decided, why not figure out a way to make this at home. And make it easier. Which I did.
Pillsbury came out an amazing product that can be used for multiple things, Recipe Creations. I've used this to make many different things, from pinwheels, to pepperoni rolls, to the above pretzel dogs. All extremely easy and delicious.
This would be a great treat for a party, Superbowl maybe? Or of course making the infamous mummies for Halloween.
Makes 8 single servings.
1 can Pillsbury Recipe Creations
1 8 pack of hotdogs
Pam or butter for the pan
Preheat your oven to 350*F. Place the hotdogs in a container filled with hot water. Cover the dogs completely and cover the container with a lid for 5 minutes. Unroll the recipe creations dough. Use a rolling pin to slighly flatten the dough a little bit. Then using a pizza cutter, slice the dough into even vertical strips. You'll probably end up with more then 8 at this time. You can do whatever you like with the excess of course.
Drain the hot dogs after the 5 minutes are up. Grease a sheet pan with either Pam or lightly with butter. Then grab two paper towels to pat dry the hot dogs. The less wet they are the easier to work with. Taking one strip of the dough, starting at the top wrap the hot dog from top to bottom, leaving a little bit of the hot dog peeking out of the top and bottom. Place them on the greased sheet pan. Repeat the process for the remaining hot dogs.
Bake at 350*F for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown to your likely. Usually the last minute or so before I'm ready to pull them out, I will brush the tops of them with butter. Allow to cool and serve with your choice of condiments.
