OMG!!!! In your face Costco! We too search and search for the big box of bagel dogs and never can find any... But now! NOW I can MAKE them!!! Wasn't too labor intensive. Rising took a little long because our house was cold, but they turned out much better than Costco! Prettier too! Going to make these again soon. I think I'll make a double batch and try freezing them for quick snacks! HIGHLY recommended!
I made these partially to please my husband and partially to fulfil a pregnancy craving. Either way, thank goodness I went looking for this recipe. I have made these 3 times in the last 2 weeks because they freeze so well. I now have a bag of minis, a bag of large turkey hot dogs, and a bag of beef turkey hot dogs all in the freezer for an impromptu snack or meal. Here are the things I did figure out. I made the dough in the breadmaker to cut down on the work for me and running the dough cycle worked perfectly. Really cut down on the work (though these are so good they would be worth the work). Next when taking large dogs out of the freezer, I found that 1 minute to 1.2 minutes is all it takes for a large frozen dog to reach warm perfection. My husband, my kids, and I are all really grateful!!!
These are labor of love like many great baking ideas, but worth every bite! I've never had the commercially made ones but after reading the description I knew I had to make them. Excellent and thanks Tink for sharing this recipe with us.
These are fantastic! I've made this recipe a few times with all beef hot dogs, lil smokies, cheddar bratwurst, and I have bagel andouille in the oven now. They're always a huge hit. I top them off with kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, poppy seeds and garlic butter. I highly recommend! Thanks for the great recipe.
Great recipe. I added onion powder, garlic powder and poppyseeds to the dough.
Was trying to copy Schwans bagel dogs. Not exactly like schwans but still a good recipe. My kids devoured them!!
