Ingredients


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Mazola® Corn Oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 12 polish sausages, fully cooked
  • 12 popsicle sticks
  • Dipping Sauce
  • 1/3 cup yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons dill pickle relish, lightly drained

Directions


Mix whole wheat flour, yeast, salt and sugar in a mixer bowl. 

Combine cottage cheese, water and oil; heat to very warm, between 120° to 130°F.  Add to flour mixture along with the egg.  Beat for 3 minutes on medium speed.  Add 1/2 cup all-purpose flour; beat 1 minute.  Gradually add enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. 

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 6 to 8 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic.  Cover and let dough rest for 10 minutes. 

Roll dough into a 12 x 10-inch rectangle.  Cut twelve 1-inch strips (each 10 inches in length).  Wrap a strip around each Polish sausage, tucking ends under sausage.  Place on greased baking sheet.  Cover and let rise 20 minutes, until puffy (dough will not double).  Place in preheated 350°F oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. 

Remove and insert stick in one end.  Serve immediately with dipping sauce.

Dipping Sauce:  Combine mustard and relish in a small bowl. 

Recipe Tip:  These can be frozen after baking.  To do, simply wrap tightly in foil, then freeze for up to 3 weeks.  Thaw in refrigerator, then either heat in 350° oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until heat through OR place Polish dog(s) on a plate and microwave about 45 seconds per dog until heated.
