Pretzel Dogs Topped with French’s Crispy Fried Jalapeños
When I was asked to incorporate French’s Jalapeño Pretzel Dogs recipe into a Big Game Tailgating and Homegating party post, I was excited. Whenever I create food for football viewing parties, I know that my guests will be thrilled to find snacks that have a fun twist and this recipe couldn’t be a better fit.
These spicy pretzel wrapped hot dogs are so quick and easy to make using store bought pizza dough and your favorite hot dogs and are perfectly paired with French’s Mustard and Ketchup.
Whether you prefer to dip your pretzel dogs into French’s Classic Yellow Mustard, made with #1 grade mustard seeds, or in French’s non-GMO, gluten free and high-fructose corn syrup free ketchup, you can rest assured that both of these French’s condiments are made with no artificial colors, flavors or preservative.
Beginning January 21st, check for coupon inserts in your local newspaper for the French’s products at Kroger and Kroger retailers which is the perfect incentive to get into the kitchen to make these fun game time snacks.
These Jalapeño Pretzel Dogs are so easy to make, and while they are baking you should have plenty of time to decorate your table for the big game.
This tablescape was super easy to throw together. I simply covered my table with a plastic football field table cloth, strung some football pennants on the wall, and served my food in various football themed bowls and cups. My party guests were able to pile their football shaped paper plates full of game day snacks including pretzels, nuts, chips, and French fries.
I arranged the pretzel dogs coming out of football field paper bowls which were sturdy enough to keep the hot dogs upright so they were the star of the show. I served my French’s Classic Yellow Mustard and Ketchup in cute little football themed shot glasses so each guest could dunk their pretzel dogs into their favorite condiment.
To make these pretzel dogs:
- Boil your hot dogs for 3 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cut 1/2 inch wide strips of pizza dough.
- Remove hot dogs and pat them dry.
- Wrap a piece of dough around the hot dog.
- Stir 3 tablespoons of baking soda into 1 cup of the hot dog water.
- Dip each dough wrapped hot do in the water then roll in crushed up French’s Crispy Jalapeños.
- Bake for about 10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until golden brown.
- Serve with French’s Classic Yellow Mustard and French’s Ketchup.
The Jalapeño Pretzel Dog recipe, which you can see here, calls for 12 hot dogs, but I found that there was plenty of pizza dough and French’s Crispy Fried Jalapeños to use all 16 hot dogs that come in two packages.
Have fun making these Pretzel Dogs Topped with French’s Crispy Fried Jalapeños for your big game tailgating or homegating party.
