mini cheesy pretzel dogs
Mmmk so let’s be honest — even though it’s summertime and the kids are out of school and you’re probably (hopefully!) getting those Friday half-day summer hours at the office (at least my friend has these; but she also has things like luaus and pajama parties at her office, so let’s all be jealous for a second and then move along) and Minnesota is ridiculously beautiful right now — I’m coping with a major case of wanderlust. And by coping, I mean stuffing my face with things like mini cheesy pretzel dogs because SOMEBODY is keeping a vacation out of reach for quite a while. Pssh. The nerve.
But really, if I can’t travel to the shores of the Caribbean or the top of the Rockies or the castles of Germany or the… uh… well, anything of Bali (what is in Bali, anyway? Not sure, but I so want to go to there) or in my friend Erin’s case, the farmers markets and bakeries of France, I can be down with my alternative plan, which, as mentioned above, involves copious amounts of mini cheesy pretzel dogs. And baby snuggles.
All of this to say, my dear friend Erin of The Law Student’s Wife (you may recall her as the genius who combined chocolate and breakfast in granola form a couple of weeks ago) is on the trip of a lifetime with her hubs to France for the next four weeks, and she’s asked a few of her blogger friends to fill in on her blog in the meantime. So I’m bringing mini hot dogs stuffed with melty American cheese and wrapped in pretzels to the party — you know, because I’m classy like that. But also because they’re delicious and I want to share the deliciousness with all y’all (I mean, the class just overfloweth).
So head on over for the recipe and while you’re there, give Erin a follow on the Instagram so I’m not the only one living vicariously through her photos abroad. Kthanksbye.
I’ll happily stay put if it means eating myself silly with these! And gah, I’ve been dying over Erin’s photos as well!
How amazing do these look? These would be so perfect for entertaining! Pinning!
So jealous of Erin! But glad that you are sharing these cheesy dogs with us. Can’t wait to bake up a batch!
These look amazing!! Love that cheese oozing out!
You had me at mini, cheesy and pretzel! Oh my goodness. They’re gorgeous too!
Love Erin too. Hope she’s having a blast.
Now, these dogs will make any Monday more tolerable!!
Cheese? Pretzels and HOT DOGS??? YOu know how to make a bread, cheese addicts Monday better! Love it!
Oh yum!! These look delicious, and the mini size is awesome! I definitely sympathize with you about the wanderlust – so many of my friends are traveling this summer, and the photos on Facebook and such are making me so envious!
Ughhh I’m dying. I want a whole sheet of these!
Yeah, I was just drooling over Erin’s photos the other day! I’m just a teeeeensy bit jealous …
So you just became a mommy, but you’ve already come up with a child’s most favorite food? You’ve got to be a genius! My kiddos will be all.over.these. I may not ever have to come up with a menu ever again. Cause the kids will eat these every single day!!
PS – LOVING the photos of your babe. Seriously adorable!!
Cheesy pretzel dogs rival any food I’ve had on vacation. My hubs will DIE over these.

Nothing better than oozy, melty cheese! Adorable, amazing and almost more than I can take, ha!

These look seriously amazing! I’ve been wanting to make homemade pretzel buns for a while, but these pig-in-a-blanket style pretzel dogs top the charts!
These look nothing but amazing!!!!! Will eat 6 right now. And I agree…following along Erin on IG is so fun and makes me so jealous.
Yeah, I’m definitely going to need you to make these for Avery’s little meet-and-greet. Mmkay?
I think I could eat about a million of these. Gimmie!!
They look amazing! Would be perfect with beer watching soccer 😀
Stephie — Ooooh. Good call. 🙂
I’m pretty sure my BIG kids would snuggle with me if I made these for them!
Waving my church hands as these look AMAZING. Pinning now! Also, don’t know if you’ve ever had it but have you tried making these with BUFFALO cheddar?? You wouldn’t be disappointed!
Also, cracking up at your use of “SOMEBODY”; too funny. 🙂
Marissa — Buffalo cheddar?? I just died.

I have a serious case of the jealousy from Erin’s trip!!! Totally going to drown my sorrows with a pretzel dog carb fest. It’s gonna be the best.
Ain’t no shame in pretzel dogs, especially when they look like that!
Oh my gosh, I’m drooling. That cheese!
Look at all that melty cheese! I’d totally eat all of these!
These are such a great idea I have never seen anything like it before. I am a bit of a cheese fan so think I might just love them.
I need a few of these like right now! looks super yummy.
Omg yes! I just made a similar snack last week and holy sh*t were they addicting. I’m all out now… so I’ll be over for some of yours very soon mmmk? 😉 xo
Anything with melted cheese is GOOD. I am soooo easy. Now I am not sure how I feel about Erin having a 4 week vacation in France. I am ENVIOUS!
Oh, My-these look incredible!
I’m in! Love hotdogs and I am glad to see people are pimpin them up!
Thank you so SO much for sharing this amazing recipe on my blog Steph! It was a total honor to have you, and I loved having a taste of the good old USA!
