The inspiration for this post was a request from CCN (Culinary Content Network) of The Daily Meal to make a Hot Dog recipe. If most of you are like me, ideas are all around us. I am trying to remember the seed for this idea but I cannot exactly remember. The seed was seeing pretzels somewhere and it made me think of a pretzel dog. But an adaption on the original. Take crescent rolls and roll the dough in crushed pretzels. There you have it. A really neat idea – now pass the mustard.
- 4 Kosher Hebrew National hot dogs
- 1 package of Pillsbury crescent rolls
- Couple of handfuls of Rold Gold pretzels
- 1/4 cup of shredded Mexican cheese
- Ketchup & Mustard for serving
Not real difficult to put this together. Take the pretzels and put into a freezer bag.
Take your meat tenderizer and pulverize almost completely. Leave just a little of the pretzels visible. Pour on to a cutting board.
Next, roll out the crescent roll on your counter. Take 2 sheets per hot dog so you are working with a rectangular shape.
Next cover with a handful of the shredded cheese.
Follow by placing the hot dog at one end of the dough.
Roll up the hot dog in the dough.
Then, take the rolled dog and roll it in the crushed pretzels.
Place in a 375 degree oven and cook for 12 – 15 minutes. Serve with mustard (and ketchup if you like). Enjoy!
