For the Dough
3 cups flour
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 T instant yeast
2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup oil, canola, sunflower or olive
In the bowl of your Kitchenaid add all dough ingredients. Using your dough hook knead until dough forms a ball.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface
and roll out with a rolling pin into a rectangle. You want it to be 12” in length. The shape of your dough does not have to be perfect! I would love the eradicate the idea that things have to be perfect! That only happens when you’re Martha Stewart and your have an entourage of people making sure everything is perfect. On that subject, she totally stole the phrase “it’s a good thing” from God. Yup, maker of heaven and earth! Every day he saw that “it was good”!!! She has some nerve!
Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough lengthwise into approx 1” slices. You may need to do this twice as some may not slice completely the first time. Again, no perfection needed!
Prepare your baking sheets w/ non stick spray and set aside.
4oz cream cheese
1/4 cup pickled jalapeño pepper chopped
shredded cheese, your choice
hot dogs, your choice
Microwave cream cheese for approx 25-30 seconds.
Chop your jalapenos
and add them to the cream cheese.
Stir to combine.
Spread your cream cheese mixture over the dough
and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Enough to cover the dough.
Starting at the top end of the dough
roll your dough strips around your hot dogs.
If your strips are too long that’s ok. Just pinch off and set aside the extra.
Continue rolling dough until dogs are gone. If you have leftover dough strips just knot them and put them on your baking sheet.
Set your dogs/knots aside and let rise in a warm place for approx 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Once they have risen a bit add water to a large stock pot and bring to a boil.
When water is boiling add 2 tbsp of baking powder. Don’t have your pot too full of water or it will bubble over when you add your baking powder. Continue boiling the water.
Using a slotted spoon or spatula add your dogs 2 at a time to the water. Let boil for 1 minute turning at least once.
Remove and put back on your prepared baking sheet. Repeat this until all the dogs have been boiled.
Brush the dogs with your egg wash and sprinkle with a little seasoning salt.
Add a couple of pinches of shredded cheese to the top of each one. Place in preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until nicely browned. You may need to turn the pan(s) once so they brown evenly. I have to do this.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Serve with ketchup and/or mustard. I normally think ketchup is sacrilege but I really like it with these hot dogs. Enjoy!
If you’re not a fan of spicy you could use chopped green chilis instead! That would be yummy!
