Bagel Dogs

Discussion in 'Pork' started by king salmon, Jan 14, 2012.

  1. Growing up I practically lived on Dr. Steins bagel dogs.  I haven't been able to find them for years so I found a bagel recipe and made them.  Since this was the first attempt I was reluctant to use any of my homemade deer sausage so I went with regular old hot dogs from the store.  I used Hebrew Nationals since my kids like them.  They came out better than I could have imagined.

    There's a lot of possibilities here now.  They could have peppers and cheese in them, maybe even mini fatties wrapped with bagel. I'm sure bacon could make the team.

    Good idea

    Looks like you rolled out the bagel dough into a thin strip and wrapped the dog?  Is that a tradional method?  Do you see any problems rolling the dough out into a sheet and wrapping the dogs.  Just curious how that would affect the fillings.   You kind of have a blank pallet you can try anything from sweet to savory.
  4. I love bagel dogs. Those look great. Recipe?

    I can't see any reason why you could fill the insides with anything that you want. I do know a way to find out thou
  6. Some bacon and cheese would really elevate that dish.

  8. Here's the recipe. It's basically a pretzel recipe. I am not a baker, much too accurate measurements for what I normally do so I'm no authority on this.  I was a little surprised how well they turned out.  The dough seemed too elastic to me to roll it into a flat sheet which is what I intended to do.  The traditional bagel dogs I've had seemed to rolled from sheets since they were closed on the end.

    Wrapping it around the dog made it look like a series of little bagels and made a convenient place to slice them into bite size appetizers and kids food.

    I put a little smoke to the dogs before hand because that's what we do, smoke everything.

    I recently made a big batch of Hot Beer deer sausage links that I will try next.

    The sky's the limit.  I think you could take a stuffed jalapeno (like the beginning of an ABT) and wrap it.  Or shoot a ground sausage (with the big round nozzle on a jerky gun) onto smoker racks, smoke and then wrap with other fillings after the sausage has cooled a bit.
    • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1 1/8 teaspoons salt
    • 1 2/3 cups warm water
    • 3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup bread flour
    • 2 cups warm water
    • 2 tablespoons baking soda
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons coarse Sea Salt

    In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast, brown sugar and salt in 1 2/3 cups warm water. Stir in both flours, and knead dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, and turn to coat the surface. Cover, and let rise for 1 ½ hours.

    Combine 2 cups warm water and baking soda in an 8 inch Pyrex.

    After dough has risen, cut into 10 pieces. Stretch each piece into a rope about 18 inches long. Start at the end of the sausage/dog and wrap down to the other end and dip into the baking soda solution. Place on parchment covered cookie sheet and let rise 15 to 20 minutes.

    Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
