Homemade Pretzel Dogs

Summary: By the way, this recipe solves the hot dog vs. bun problem. They definitely were a rousing success! My super picky 4 year old asked for THIRDS! And our dinner guest suggested I get a food cart and start selling them on the street!


    • 1½ cups warm (110 to 115 degrees F) water
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1 package (1 scant tablespoon) active dry yeast
    • 4½ cups all-purpose flour
    • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted (or salted butter, but decrease the 2 teaspoons of salt by a bit)
    • Vegetable oil, for pan
    • 10 cups water
    • 2/3 cup baking soda
    • 2 tablespoons butter (regular or unsalted), melted
    • coarse sea salt or kosher salt, for sprinkling
