It never fails, every time we go to the mall I am drawn to the pretzels! I just love fresh made pretzels and more recently pretzel dogs. I really wanted to create my own version of pretzel dogs that didn’t take a long time to make. These Easy Pretzel Dogs are made with refrigerated breadstick dough so there is no waiting for bread to rise. The secret to making them pretzel-like is dipping them into a solution of baking soda and water. So easy! We loved how these turned out and it may just be the next party food I serve instead of the regular pigs in a blanket!
I really like the bun length Bar-S hot dogs for these. They were the perfect size to wrap two of the breadsticks around. Bar-S products are always a great value and are the #1 selling franks in the country.
I can’t get over how easy these were to make and how tasty they were!
Easy Pretzel Dogs
- 6 bun length Bar-S franks
- 1 can refrigerated breadstick dough
- 2 cups water + 1/4 cup baking soda
- optional: pretzel salt
- Preheat oven to 400° F and spray a baking sheet with oil. Wrap the Bar-S franks with the breadstick dough. The bun length dogs will take 2 breadsticks each. Stir the baking soda and water mixture well and dip each wrapped pretzel dog in the mixture for a second. Shake off the excess water and place the pretzel dog on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with pretzel salt if desired. Bake the pretzel dogs for around 10-12 minutes or until the crust is a deep golden brown. Take out and serve!

These are a new family recipe favorite! I have a feeling I will be asked to make them for every potluck from now on!
