These Homemade Pretzel Dogs are so easy and so delicious! Hot dogs wrapped in an easy bread dough make the perfect appetizer for parties and game day.

what you need:


brown sugar

all-purpose flour

active dry yeast

hot dogs

kosher salt

baking soda

large egg


Add the warm water, brown sugar, and active dry yeast to a large bowl and stir to combine. Set aside for the yeast to bloom for 5 minutes.

Add the flour and kosher salt. Stir with a dough whisk or wooden spoon until a shaggy dough forms.


Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead until it is smooth and tacky, about 2-3 minutes.


Cover the dough (with plastic wrap or a damp towel) and place it in a warm place to rise until doubled in size, about 90 minutes.


When the dough has risen, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a 10-inch long rope and then wrap it around one of the hot dogs.
