  • Add warm water to sugar, yeast and 1/2 Tbsp. butter in small bowl; stir. Let stand 5 min. or until foamy.
  • Use pulsing action of food processor to process flour and 1/4 tsp. salt just until blended. Add yeast mixture; process 1 min. or until mixture is well blended and forms ball that pulls away from side of container.
  • Transfer dough to medium bowl sprayed with cooking spray; turn dough over. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place 30 min. or until doubled in size.
  • Punch down dough. Divide dough into 30 small balls, using about 1 Tbsp. dough for each ball. Roll each ball into 6-inch-long rope. Wrap 1 rope around each hot dog piece; pinch ends, then seams together to seal. Place on 2 baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Heat oven to 425ºF. Place racks on lowest and highest positions in oven. Fill Dutch oven with 10 cups water. Add baking soda; stir until dissolved. Bring water just to simmer. Carefully add 6 wrapped hot dogs, 1 at a time, to hot water; cook 45 sec. or until dough starts to puff. Remove from water with slotted spoon; return to baking sheets. Sprinkle with remaining salt. Place 1 baking sheet on each oven rack.
  • Bake 13 to 14 min. or until dough is lightly browned, switching baking sheets on oven racks after 7 min. Transfer pretzel dogs to wire racks. Melt remaining butter; brush onto pretzel dogs.
  • Serve with ketchup and mustard.

Food Facts

Do not bring the water with the baking soda to boil until ready to use. Otherwise, the pretzels might have a bitter baking soda-like flavour.

How to Easily Divide the Dough into 30 Equal-Size Balls

Divide ball of dough into thirds, then divide each third into 10 equal pieces. Cover with a damp towel to help prevent them from drying out before rolling into balls and using as directed.
