My Life of Travels and Adventures: Recipe: Soft Pretzel Bites

Recipe: Soft Pretzel Bites

18 January 2012


I saw this recipe a while ago and finally got around to making them this week.  I did make a few changes from the original recipe.

Ingredients:

  •  1 1/2 cups warm water (around 110F)
  • 2 Tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (1 pkg)
  • 6 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 1/2 quarts water
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 Tbsp cold water
  • Coarse salt
Directions:
  1. Combine the water, sugar, yeast, and butter in a large bowl.  Mix with a dough hook until combined.  
  2. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the salt and flour.  Mix on a low speed until combined.  Increase the speed until completely combined and the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl (about 3-4 minutes).
  4. Oil a separate bowl with the canola oil.  Add the dough and turn to coat with oil. 
  5. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm spot until the dough doubles in size (about 1 hour)
  6. Preheat the oven to 425F. 
  7. Bring the water to boil in a large pot.  Add the baking soda. 
  8. Divide the dough and roll each piece into a long rope. 
  9. Cut the dough into bite size pieces or make cute little pretzels. 
  10. A couple at a time, place the pretzel pieces into the boiling water mixture for about 30 seconds. 
  11. Remove with a slotted spoon and place onto a sprayed baking sheet.
  12. Mix the egg and cold water together and brush over the pretzels
  13. Sprinkle with salt.
  14. Bake for 15-20 minutes (until golden brown)

These are so yummy!

  1. These sound great! Can you skip the egg part or use something else instead for those with egg allergies?
