Mini Pretzel Sausages

I was already nostalgic about my school years and baked simple honey buns, and here nostalgia came back again. Although this is more about university years because sausage rolls for a while was the only eatable thing in our canteen. Their quality was certainly doubtful, but we got coming and going, so periodically ate them. Actually I did these sausages for guests with kids, so they became mini sausages.

p.s. The recipe is inspired by Joy The Baker.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 40 mins
  • Ready In: 1 hr 50 mins



  1. Using a mixer and a dough whisk, mix a little warm water and sugar. Add the yeast and leave for 5 minutes. The liquid should start to bubble a bit, which means that the yeast is good to go.
  2. Next, add the flour, salt and melted butter. Mix all the ingredients at low speed. Turn on medium speed and mix until the dough will fall from the walls of the mixer bowl. It will take about 4 minutes.
  3. Take out the dough. It should be soft and quite a bit sticky. Then oil the bowl, place the dough in it, sprinkle with flour and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Leave it to rise in a warm place for about an hour.
  4. Warm the oven up to 220 degrees. Cover 2 baking pans with baking paper and grease it with oil. Oil it well, or sausage rolls will stick to the paper.
  5. In a large pot boil 14 cups of water and add 1 cup of baking soda. At this time, make sausage rolls.
  6. Apply the work surface with oil, pull out the dough and divide it into 16 parts.
  7. Roll out each ball of dough into a long rope and wrap it around half a sausage.
  8. Put sausage rolls in small portions into boiling water for 30 seconds and lay them on baking pans in a short distance from each other.
  9. Beat the egg and cover all the sausages with it. Sprinkle them with coarse salt, pepper and sesame seeds and put it to the oven for 15 minutes or until a crust is desired color appears.
  10. Cool them a little and eat warm.

    All of your photos are gorgeous! I don’t even eat hot dogs, but I would take a bite of this since it looks so good.

  4. Mike Yarmish Says:

    It’s not like I’m a big fan of them at the moment but several small hot dogs could be nice once in a while.

  5. Darlene Says:

    I just wanted to know if you bake these are baked at 220 F. or is this Celcius?

    This will sound like a silly question but do you cook the sausages before wrapping the dough around them? Worried they won’t cook, but I suppose 15 minutes in the oven would suffice.
