    Ambervim's Note:

    What could be better than soft pretzels with ham and cheese inside. Consider a mustardy dipping sauce. However, they are great all alone.

    Each

    Units: US | Metric

    Dough

    Filling

    • 1/2 cup ham, finely chopped (or slices)
    • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, finely shredded (or slices. Use another if you want to do so)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine milk and brown sugar in a bowl and stir til sugar is dissolved.
    2. 2
      Add flour and .25 oz instant dry yeast.
    3. 3
      Stir until a soft dough forms. Add more flour as needed (up to 1/2 cup).
    4. 4
      Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead a few times, forming a smooth ball.
    5. 5
      Brush the inside of a large clean bowl with olive oil. Transfer the dough to the bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Alow it to rise in a warm, draft-free area for about 2 hours, or until the dough has doubled in size and bubbles appear on the surface.
    6. 6
      Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide it into 4 equal pieces. Lightly dust a rolling pin with flour and roll each piece of dough into roughly a 12x4-inch rectangle.
    7. 7
      With the long sides facing you, place the ham topped by the cheese onto the bottom third of each piece of dough.
    8. 8
      Starting with the long edge with ham and cheese, roll tightly into logs.
    9. 9
      Cut each roll into 12 pieces.
    10. 10
      Transfer to a silpat (parchment) lined sheet and let them rest for 30 minutes.
    11. 11
      Preheat oven to 400°F.
    12. 12
      Bring 6 cups of water to a boil. Add 4 teaspoons of baking soda to the boiling water and reduce the heat to a gentle simmer.
    13. 13
      Boil the pretzels in batches, cooking for about 20 seconds each and turning once. If you are having casualties, pinch the ends closed just a little.
    14. 14
      They should look slightly puffed when they are done. Use a slotted spoon to transfer them back to the baking sheet.
    15. 15
      Bake in the preheated oven until they are puffed and golden, about 15 minutes.
    16. 16
      Brush with 4 tablespoons of melted butter and sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons of coarse kosher salt.
    17. 17
      Best served warm. Or enjoy room temperature.
    18. 18
      Consider a mustardy dipping sauce.
    19. 19

      Easy to make, but the dough needs salt, definitely. It is a little bland. I used a combination of cheddar & Swiss, not mozzarella. I also used sesame seeds & salt on the outside. Very tasty.
