Are you ready for tiniest tailgate treat ever? We teamed up with Hebrew National to create some original recipes, and while working on a failed idea, I figured out how to make the smallest, cutest, most mouth-popping hot dog you ever did see.
It’s super simple, and pretty fun. First pop over to our pretzel bun recipe to make the dough for these little guys. Instead of shaping the dough into buns, you are going to make small flat sheets and cut them into square bug enough to wrap around the tiny dog.
So, how did we get them so tiny? It’s so silly easy, and you probably have everything you need to make hundreds in your kitchen.
After you have the pretzel dough, and it’s in squares and ready to bake (but after you boiled it), use a thick straw and punch it through your Hebrew National full sized hot dog to make these tiny little guys!
We used the blue straw above, and then piped the Hunt’s Ketchup and Gulden’s Mustard through a sandwich bag we snipped a tiny hole in the corner of to finish off the dogs when we were done.
Wrap your dough 3/4 around your new tiny dog (you’ll get about 25 super mini dogs per 1 regular sized Hebrew National dog), and then bake for about 15 minus, or until the dough is slightly golden.
Once done you can fill a bowl and serve like cereal with a spoon, or mix with popcorn and pretzels for an unforgettable snack mix! The possibilities are endless – and all genius!
For a fun and tailgate-inspiration-packed time, check out this video from Natalie of Mint Social Club. If you missed how we made sweet and sticky hot dog bites, they are also a win for a tailgate too!
With grilling season upon us, everyone is craving an all-American hot dog. What makes a kosher hot dog different? It’s all about what makes the cut (and what doesn’t). Hebrew National is choosy about what goes into their franks – only 100% pure kosher beef so you know what you’re getting and they taste great.
