Copy Cat Auntie’s Pretzel Dogs

My local HEB has a Auntie Pretzel Shop and I love their pretzel wrapped hot dogs.  They are the perfect grocery shopping snack.  I justify my splurge by saying that it keeps my hungry eyes from tossing extra things in the basket.  I am not sure if it really makes a difference, but I am not willing to skip the snack stand to find out!

I tried my hand at duplicating this recipe and they were pretty spot on!  YUM!!


Here is what you need:

1 Batch Soft Pretzel dough

2 packages hot dogs

2 quarts water

1/4 cup baking soda

2 eggs, whisked

Wrap your hot dog tightly in the dough.  Make sure to tuck the end under at the top.


Press the dough at the end tightly making sure the edge is sealed.


20130908-191244.jpgBoil your water and add the baking soda.  Drop each pretzel dog into the water for 1 minute.


Brush each pretzel dog with the egg wash.


Bake on 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Sprinkle with salt.  Enjoy 🙂
