A Tale of Two Pretzels - Epilogue - PretzelPups
When I was assembling the Sigmund pretzels it occurred to me that pretzels and hot dogs go pretty well together. I found an opened pack of hot dogs with three remaining and decided to give it a whirl. The PretzelPups were awesome dunked in mustard. So awesome, in fact, I forgot to take a picture of them until mine was nearly entirely devoured.
Punch a few holes into each hot dog and microwave, wrapped in a paper towel, for about 30 seconds.
Cut one of the lengths of pretzel dough into three equal pieces and roll them out to about 15" long.
Spiral the dough around the hot dog and boil each "pup" in the beer mixture for 30 seconds and sprinkle them with a little bit of kosher salt.
Bake the PretzelPups on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a 450 degree F oven for about 8 minutes (rolling them over to expose their white sides after 5 minutes of baking).
