INGREDIENTS: • All Purpose Flour • Whole wheat flour • Yeast • Butter • Baking soda • Hot dogs • Egg • Kosher Salt • Sugar

Combine warm water, sugar and kosher salt. Sprinkle yeast over the water and let sit for 5 minutes, until foamy.

Add in flour, whole wheat flour and cooled, melted butter. Mix on low speed until combined.

Increase speed to medium and mix until the dough is smooth and pulls away from the sides of the bowl, about 5 minutes.

Add water if dough is crumbly and not holding shape. Work dough into a ball.

Place dough ball in a large bowl coated with oil, cover and let it sit in a warm place for approximately 1 hour, or until double in size.

Divide dough into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a long rope, about 24-inches long.

Wrap each rope piece around one ¼ pound hot dog. 

Tuck the ends of each rope into the folds and place on   lined baking sheet, seam side down.

Boil pretzel dogs in the pot with boiling water and baking soda. Remove with a slotted spoon and place back onto baking sheet.

Brush each boiled pretzel dog with egg wash and sprinkle with kosher salt.

Bake in a 450ºF oven until browned, about 13-15 minutes.

Allow pretzel dogs to cool on a cooling rack for 5-10 minutes before serving.
