DIRECTIONS

  • Cut dough in half and roll onto two smooth logs. Or form your own dough into logs about the size of a hoagie roll.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Put 10 cups of water into a large pan. Add baking soda and heat to barely boiling making sure that the baking soda is dissolved.
  • Lower one loaf at a time into the water. Let simmer for 30 seconds, then turn the bread over to let it simmer for 30 seconds on the other side.
  • Remove bread to a greased cookie sheet and repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Mix together egg yolk and 1 tablespoon water. Brush loaves evenly with a pastry brush. Sprinkle tops with salt.
  • Bake until loaves are a deep brown and sound hollow when thumped.
  • Remove breads to a wire rack to cool.
  • Mix together the butter, mustard and honey. Serve with the bread.
  • You can also make homemade mall style soft pretzels the same way. Just use refrigerated bread stick dough, roll into ropes and shape into pretzel shapes.
