i dont know about you but my kids LOVE hot dogs. but after a while you get tored of the same ole hotdog. so i took a recipe for a soft baked pretzle and instead of twisting it in to a giant pretzle i rolled it out and lined it with cheese and placed a hotdog in the center. a more grownup version would be to place sausage in the center. anywho this was a big hit with the kids.

1 1/2 cups warm (110 to 115 degrees F) water
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 package active dry yeast
22 ounces all-purpose flour, approximately 4 1/2 cups
2 ounces unsalted butter, melted
8 hot dogs
cheese of your choice

Combine the water, sugar and kosher salt in the bowl of a stand mixer and sprinkle the yeast on top. Allow to sit for 5 minutes or until the mixture begins to foam. Add the flour and butter and, using the dough hook attachment, mix on low speed until well combined. Change to medium speed and knead until the dough is smooth and pulls away from the side of the bowl, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the dough from the bowl, clean the bowl and then oil it well with vegetable oil. Return the dough to the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and sit in a warm place for approximately 50 to 55 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.

after the dough has risen divide it in to 8 equal portions you might need to flour the work surface just a bit to keep the dough from sticking. roll it out in the shape of a rectangle long enough for a hot dog to sit. lay down the cheese of your choice and put your dog on the dough. roll it up and close up the ends. place them on the baking sheet and brush with eggwash then sprinkle with coarse salt.

bake 450 deg for 10 - 12 min or till golden brown. when they come out brush with melted butter. and enjoy

i served theese with mustard that i mixed with brown sugar. it may not sound very good but it really is. it was a big hit.

Oh and 1 more thing. i have to tell you that i have little kids so i could not wait the hour  for the dough to rise they were hungry NOW. so the dough only sat for 15 min. but it turned out really good.

Its lunch time and that made me hungry.  Thanks for the idea, I bet my family will love it.  And thanks for the "15 minute dough" knowledge, I have 3 kids and a husband that is usually more impatient then the children and food prep is pretty fast in this house.    Wink

They smell so good at the mall. Now, I can make some and it won't cost me much. Thank you.
