Halloween is officially over and November has begun!

Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before you know it. Officially, has I type this, Christmas is only a mere 53 days from now. Can you believe it?  It seems like it was just summer vacation and we were watching fireworks at our local 4th of July celebration. #TimeFlies

Speaking of summer and 4th of July, today, I'm sharing hot dogs! Which, to many people are more of a "summer food". However, we eat hot dogs all year round at my house, don't other people? 

Especially, with my kids being home schooled and home for lunch, they are a convenient lunch time meal option.

These are a fun twist on your average hot dogs. They are wrapped in homemade pretzel dough and and topped with melted butter and coarse salt.  Have you ever tried a pretzel dog?  If you haven't..you are missing out!

They are really delicious, but, they key is using a good quality hot dog.  All beef (or turkey) with no nitrates or fillers work out really well for these.

Also, they freeze really well. I keep extras in a freezer safe plastic bag and when ready, just heat them up in the microwave or oven. Works out great!


Serve these Pretzel Dogs  with your favorite ketchup (homemade!) or mustard with a side of potato chips and you have a fun lunch or dinner option!


Enjoy-

In a large pot, bring water and baking soda to a full boil.
Turn risen dough out on a well floured surface. Then, separate dough into 8 equal pieces.
Roll each piece into a rope that is approx 18-20 inches long. Wrap dough around hot dog and seal edges. Repeat with remaining hot dogs.
Place wrapped hot dogs in boiling water, one at a time, for 30 seconds. Remove and place on prepared baking sheet.
Brush the tops of rolled hot dogs with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse salt.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until browned.
Let them sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.
