    Pretzel Dough

    For the Pretzel Boil

    For the Topping


    1. 1
      Combine the water, sugar and yeast in a large mixing bowl and set aside in a warm spot. After 10-15 minutes, the mixture should begin to foam and bubble.
    2. 2
      Add the salt and about half of the flour; mix well with a wooden spoon. Turn the dough out onto a clean, floured surface and gradually knead in the remaining flour to form a smooth and elastic dough.
    3. 3
      Continue to knead the dough for another 5 minutes before transferring to a clean bowl with the bottom coated with olive oil. Turn the dough in the bowl to coat all sides evenly with oil.
    4. 4
      Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and set in a warm, draft free place until doubled in bulk, about an hour.
    5. 5
      In the meantime, stir together any combination of seeds, pepper, granulated garlic, dried minced onion and salt; set aside. (See description.).
    6. 6
      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Punch the dough down and roll into a large log. Pinch off bits of dough and roll into a long rope (about 1/2 inch or less thick) and shape. To form a traditional pretzel shape, simply tie the dough into a loose knot pinching the loose ends across the loops. Transfer the pretzels onto greased baking sheets, being sure to leave generous amounts of room between them. Note: They will expand both as they rise and again as they boil and bake.
    7. 7
      Cover the pretzels with a cloth and allow to rise again, about 5 - 10 minutes.
    8. 8
      Combine the baking soda and the water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Using a slotted spoon, carefully lower each pretzel in the boiling water until it begins to float, about 45 seconds to 1 minute. More than one may be boiled at a time, but be sure not to crowd the the pan as they will expand as they boil.
    9. 9
      Drain each pretzel and transfer to a greased baking sheet, brush lightly with the egg-water mixture and sprinkle generously with the salt/seed mixture.
    10. 10
      Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for about 20-24 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with hot mustard and maybe cold beer.
    11. 11
      Store in an air-tight container and rewarm prior to serving.
