Bagel Dogs

If you know me, then you know of my absolute LOVE of Bagel Dogs. I decided I was tired of paying Noah's Bagels almost 4 bucks for one, and god knows how fattening the hot dogs they use are. I searched online and there are not really many recipes for this, but I finally found one here at America's Little Germany, it is the same recipe I used for my Pretzels!

These are delicious, really easy to make and are a perfect snack or lunch item.

1 package (.25 oz) package dry yeast (don't use fast activating yeast)
1 package Hot Dog of your choice (I used the Fat Free Kosher Dogs)
2 tbl brown sugar
1 1/8 tsp salt
1 2/3 cups warm water (110 degrees)
3 cups AP flour
1 cup bread flour
2 cups warm water
2 tbl baking soda
2 tbl butter melted
Kosher Salt

In large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast, brown sugar and salt in 1 1/2 cups warm water. Let is sit a minute or two.

Stir in both flours, and knead on a floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. (I used the dough hook on my stand mixer and it turned out beautifully).

Place in a greased bowl (I use cooking spray), turn to coat the entire surface. Cover and let rise for 1.5 hours.

Combine 2 cups warm water and baking soda in an 8 inch square pan

Get your dogs ready and pat them dry

After dough has risen, cut into 12 pieces, roll each into a rope about 1.5 feet long and starting at the top of your hot dog just wind the dough around the dog.

Dip into baking soda/water solution for a second or two and place on a parchment covered cookie sheet (I just used my Silpat on a baking sheet) What this accomplishes I have no idea?

Let rise an additional 20 minutes

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes until golden brown, remove, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with Kosher Salt

**I had 7 dogs, so there was leftover dough which I made into Pretzel Shapes and proceeded as above.

My kids would love these Cheryl. I'll have to make them someday. The bagel looks golden brown and perfect.

That is a great way to eat a dog!!! The guys in this house would love it!! Thanks

Debbie said...

They look so good...nice change from the regular "dog." Think my son would love these!!!

MaryBeth said...

I too hate the huge price from Noah's...I love bagel dogs.

NuKiwi said...

Yum...I actually tried your pretzel recipe and made both cinnamon sugar pretzels and a batch of plain bagels. Both were delish! If we had access to halfway decent dogs I might give this one a go, however...our dogs ain't quite the same! (yuck)

I have done the taco ring using croissant dough though... ;o)

Heather said...

ohhhh. i love bagel dogs! when i was in germany, i feel in love with the intelligence of stuffing a hot dog in a roll that was solid on the bottom, rather than serving them split open like we do here. it is so useful for walking around with hotdogs, smashing mustard in there, and otherwise enjoyging the delicious hotdog. mmm :)

Amy said...

I bookmarked that recipe before because I too love bagel dogs. Yours look really good!

Raquel said...

yum, oh, yum, yum, yum! That looks fab! I think the baking soda thing has to do with chewiness - or possibly taste? - quite possibly I have no idea! Great recipe, tho!

Much love, Raquel XO

Katherine Aucoin said...

These look fantastic, your photos are spectacular! My family would love these.

Paula said...

Whoa! Those look so fancy and way better than the bagel dog shop ones. I like how you made the rope and wound it around the dog. My son will think you are a goddess!

Becky said...

Thanks for sharing a great recipe. I was looking for something to go with a squash soup that my kids would eat (since I don't hold great hopes for them trying the soup). These are perfect! And we also made pretzels that were delicious as well (although, to tell the truth, I've never had a "mall" pretzel, so I couldn't compare them to that).

I'm looking forward to trying some more of your creations!

Jan said...

They look totally yumptious, Cheryl. Do you do mail order?

Tim said...

I was curious how you would boil these as you do with ordinary bagels. Then I read and I see that you don't. Doesn't that affect the bagel-ness of the dough?

Deb said...

This recipe looks wonderful. I was scouring the internet for Dr. Stein's bagel dogs (costco stopped carrying them and my teenage son loved them) and I came across your blog. I'm in Portland!! I'm going to try this recipe tomorrow depending on how hot it gets here. Hub won't let me heat the house up even for bagel dogs. :) Thanks SO MUCH for sharing this.

Amber said...

This looks really nice...would I be able to cook this ahead of time and transport them to a soccer game for the after party? Meaning..would they still taste good if they weren't fresh and hot?

Okay, I know that this is an old post. But can I just say I ♥ U?!!!!

I loved the Costco bagel dogs SO much. I was so mad when Costco stopped carrying them, and I have been on the hunt ever since for something that good. I am so going to try this recipe out. Thank you!!!

Tom Barlow said...

I too have been missing Dr. Stein's Bagel Dogs! This is a great recipe - I've made several large batches using large Hebrew National all-beef (of course) hot dogs (from Costco). Once they are cool, you can easily freeze some: wrapped separately, first in wax paper, then in foil, then usually several in a gallon ziplock bag. I've had no problems with freezer burn. When you are ready for one, get rid of the foil, microwave it in the wax paper for 1 minute 35 seconds, then unwrap it and put it into the toaster oven to crisp up the bagel crust a little. Great, quick meal - and very, very similar to the old Dr. Stein's.
Thank you so much for sharing this!
