  • Homemade or Store bought Bread Dough
  • Hebrew National Beef Franks
  • Pineapple tidbits
  • Chopped Onion ~ optional
  • Yellow Pepper ~ optional


  1. If making homemade bread dough, make it first. Then while bread dough is rising, cut hot dogs length wise so they will lay flat.
  2. Grill for 2 min on each side. I just wanted them slightly grilled for flavor ~ you could skip this step if you are not using a gas grill and it’s a hassle to just press a button to fire up the coals.
  3. Make Shari’s Homemade Sweet and Sour Sauce (recipe below) and chop the onion and pepper. This is all done while dough is rising…so you don’t have to hurry or worry about timing…it’s a relaxed process.
  4. Now grab a fist full of dough and roll out dough in an oblong shape to accommodate hot dog. Then put hot dog on dough, add pineapple and onion/pepper mixture and brush with a little sweet and sour sauce.
  5. Then fold the dough over and pinch the edges together.
  6. Make as many as your heart desires. Then spray lightly with cooking spray and grill over medium low heat for about 4-5 with lid down.
  7. The bread cooks super quick so keep an eye on it. Then turn over and cook for about 2 min. more.
  8. Remove from heat and eat! Use the Sweet and Sour Sauce for dipping if you like.

Recipe Notes

Shari's Homemade Sweet and Sour Sauce

1/2 Cup Pineapple Juice
1/4 Cup distilled White vinegar
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoon White Sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoon Ketchup
1 1/2 Tablespoons Cornstarch dissolved in 2 tsp. water

Directions: Combine Juice, vinegar, sugars, ketchup in a small pan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add the Cornstarch/water mixture and cook. Stirring while sauce boils for a bit and thickens. It won’t be too thick..just right. Let cool a little before serving. YUM! Big Hit!
