For the Pretzels
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
For the Topping
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
For the Baking Soda Bath
  • 1/3 cup baking soda
  • 3 quarts water
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, sugar, and yeast.
  2. Add the water and stir to form a soft, smooth dough.
  3. Knead gently for about five minutes, until smooth.
  4. Lightly flour the dough and place in a gallon size Ziplock bag.
  5. Seal the bag, leaving room for the dough to expand.
  6. Let rise for 30-60 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
  8. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat.
  9. Divide the dough into four pieces, and roll each piece into a long rope about 1 inch in diameter.
  10. Cut each rope into one inch pieces.
  11. Make the bath by bringing the water to a boil and slowly adding in the baking soda

  12. Dip the dough pieces into the water bath for no more than 30 second

  13. Then place on the prepared baking sheet.

  14. Repeat with remaining dough. Let rest uncovered for 10 minutes.
  15. Bake 7-8 minutes, or until golden brown.
  16. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  17. While the pretzels are cooling, melt the butter in a small bowl, and whisk in the garlic salt and parsley.
  18. Pour the butter over the pretzels and toss to coat (I usually add everything to a ziplock bag and shake).
  19. Add the parmesan cheese and toss to combine.
  20. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.
