For the Pretzels

cups all-purpose flour tsp instant dry yeast i.e. 1 (¼ -oz.) packet 1 tsp salt 1 tsp sugar ¾ cup + 2 Tbsp warm water

For the Baking Soda Bath

2 cups boiling water ¼ cup baking soda

For the Topping

1 large egg 2 Tbsp {optional} mustard for dipping


For the Pretzels

Using a countertop mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, add flour, yeast, salt, sugar, and warm water. Mix on medium speed for 5 minutes. (Note: Dough will be very soft.)

Transfer dough into an oiled bowl, cover and let sit at room temperature for 45 minutes. (Note: Dough will not rise much.)

For the Baking Soda Bath

Meanwhile, prepare the Baking Soda Bath by combining the boiling water and baking soda in a shallow dish. Stir until baking soda is fully dissolved, then set mixture aside to cool. (Note: A 9”x13” casserole dish works great here.)

Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Working on a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of dough into a 20” long rope. (Note: If the dough seems to shrink back while rolling, just let it rest for 5 minutes.)

Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper and spray generously with nonstick cooking spray.

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Shape each rope into a pretzel (see pictures in post as a guide).

Working in batches of 2-3 pretzels, place each pretzel into the baking soda mixture and let sit for 2 minutes. (Note: The water should cover the top of the pretzels. If necessary, flip pretzels after 2 minutes.)

After soaking, place pretzels on prepared baking sheets.

For the Topping

Using a small bowl, whisk the egg together with 1 tablespoon of water. Brush this egg wash on top of the pretzels. (Note: Not all of the egg wash will be used.)

Sprinkle tops of pretzels with Everything Bagel Seasoning.

Bake for 9-10 minutes, or until tops of pretzels are golden brown.

Remove pretzels from oven and let cool on a wire rack before serving.

Serve plain or with mustard for dipping.
