After seeing some awesome threads on pretzels. And different ways to make them. I gave my hand at it. I buy those little mini pretzel things from AuntieAnne's once in awhile from the service stations along the thruway or at malls. And sometimes they were fresh and tasty. Other times they tasted like, and they probably were, under a heat lamp for 6 hours. So here goes.

Got a pack of mini hot dogs. And a bag of ready made fresh pizza dough.

Wrapped the little guys with 2 wraps of dough and pinched closed. Got 5 cups of water boiling. And added 1/4 cup of baking soda. For a second there I thought I was going to have a explosion. man, did that foam up! Added them in small batches for 30 seconds. Then brushed with egg. And sprinkled sea salt on them.

Put in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Had with a side of sweet and spicy mustard. This was very good. Much better then I've ever had. For the first time with making this. And pretzels. I really think I'll be making my own pretzels from now on. It is quite easy.

:emoji_laughing: I was reading other recipes on making pretzels. And followed that procedure. I should have followed yours! My next batch I think I'll try the lil smokies. Should be good.

Alright Steve. The snow needs to clear out and you need to go back to work :emoji_laughing: Seriously, those look really cool my friend. Those for appetizers and the ones Chopsaw posted for dinner. Not a bad gig. Rain supposed to start tomorrow and I'll have all my chores done today. This may very well be on the agenda...or the ones Chopsaw posted. I do love fresh pretzels, that's for sure and what's not to love about Bratwurst or Lil' Smokies?

Getting my Sunday planned out,
Robert

I spent 3 hours blowing out the driveway and sidewalk. I'm done with winter. Though I shouldn't complain too much. The winter has been mild so far.

You're not torturing me. I just laugh :emoji_laughing: You're only torturing yourself...and your family...and your friends who eat them. Just kidding. It's no different than all the "feedback" I got about putting a pinch of coffee in my Italian marinara sauce. We all have what we like and there's no fault in that whatsoever. I guess if anybody could make a gourmet meal out of cheese whiz, it's you.

Thanks Travis. You and your son should have fun doing this together.
