Bagel Dogs...and Pizza Swirls
Because I was craving a bagel dog, I made all these creations one day. I used my Best-Ever Bagels dough for all of these recipes. You can use your own bread dough if you like...

Bagel Dogs...and Pizza Swirls Preparation
FOR THE PIZZA SWIRLS:
Take a chunk of dough and roll into a rectangular shape. about 1.2 inch thick. Spread a layer of pasta sauce onto the dough. I had some meat sauce, so that is what I used. But feel free to use regular pizza/pasta sauce. If your sauce is on the thinner side, you can cook it down some to thicken a bit. Sprinkle some Mozzarela cheese and roll up Jelly-roll style. Pinch seam. Cut into 1 inch(or so)slices and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. You can brush the sides of the dough with some beaten egg if you like. I didn't...but it will give it some nice golden color. Bake in a preheated 400 deg oven for 10-12 minutes.Some cheese/sauce will ooze out. Just let it cool down a bit.
FOR THE PARMESAN HAM AND JALAPENO SWIRLS:
Basically the same idea as above(pizza swirls), except you don't use any sauce. I substituted some Parmesan cheese and added some diced pickled jalapenos.This was more "plain" flavored. You can definitely be creative...try adding some Alfredo sauce with a bit of roasted garlic, etc... Take a chucnk of bagel dough and roll out in a rectangle to about 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle some chopped Canadian bacon/ham along with some cheese on top of the dough. I ran out of mozzarella and had to use some Colby/Cheddar cheese.
FOR THE BAGEL DOG/SAUSAGE ROLLS:
You will need some hot dogs... or in my case, some sausage. I didn't have any hot dogs, so I used what I had. The casing from the sausage will make you pull at it a bit, unlike a regular hot dog... but, the flavor was incredible! Cut sausage into 1 inch(or so) slices. Set aside.
Take a chunk of bread dough and roll into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Using a 2-2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter, cut out circles. Wrap the dough around the sausage slice and pinch the dough to encase the sausage. Make sure it is completely closed/pinched(Otherwise it will open as you boil them). Then gently form the dough around the sausage/hot dog piece....basically to get the dough evenly distributed around the sausage/hot dog.
Let it rise for 20-25 minutes. Boil as you would bagels. See my Best Ever Bagels recipe post.Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or leave plain. Bake in a pre-heated 375 oven for 10-12 minutes or until nicely golden brown.
If you have leftover bagel dough you can make bagel bites...
For the Mini Pretzel Bites:
Take an orange size chunk (or smaller) of dough and roll it in a thin round log/strip. Using the kitchen shears, cut about 1 inch chunks.Let rise for about 20 minutes. Boil the pretzel pieces for about 1 minute in simmering water(with baking soda/sugar...check out the post on the bagels.)just like you would boil the bagels.Brush with beaten egg.Bake at 400 deg for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.Eat them plain...or dip in a honey mustard sauce, plain mustard, marinara sauce, balsamic/olive oil/parmesan dip, cheese sauce, etc.
