The perfect lunch for a picnic in the backyard.


8 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
8 hot dogs
1/4 cup baking soda
1 egg
2 tablespoons water
pretzel salt
ketchup and mustard


Roll each dinner roll into an 18 inch rope. Wind each one around a hot dog from top to bottom. Press the dough onto itself at top and bottom so it doesn’t unroll.

Boil 3 quarts of water. Carefully pour soda into boiling water. Place 2 wrapped pretzel dogs into the water for about 30 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon to a cooling rack. Repeat until all pretzel dogs are boiled. Place boiled pretzel dogs on a sprayed baking sheet.

Combine egg and water and mix well. Brush pretzel dogs with egg wash and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 450 degrees F 6-8 minutes or until dark golden brown. Serve with ketchup and mustard.

    Can you freeze these to use later?

      I’m sure it would be work just fine. You could wrap them in aluminum foil and warm them in the oven. Enjoy!
