Rate this Recipe


1 Pckg Active Dry Yeast (2 1/4 Tsp)
1 Cup Warm Water (about 110 degrees)
1/4 Cup Honey
3 Cups Bread Flour
1 1/2 Tsp Salt
Water, for boiling
6 Tbsp Baking Soda
1 Egg
6 Tbsp Butter, melted
Coarse Salt or Sea Salt, for topping
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the warm water and yeast. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the honey and mix to combine.
  3. In a large bowl, add the flour and salt and whisk together. Add to the bowl of the stand mixer and use the dough hook to combine. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes or until it pulls away from the sides and forms a ball.
  4. Lightly coat the inside of a bowl with oil and place the ball of dough inside. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm place to rise for about 1 ½ hours. You want the dough to double in size.
  5. After the time has passed, gently knead the dough for about 1 minute, then return to the bowl, loosely cover, and let rise for an additional 45 minutes.
  6. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Add 12 cups of water to a large pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the baking soda.
  8. While the water is heating, divide the dough into 8 equal parts. Roll each piece of dough into a long rope. Twist each piece of dough into a pretzel shape.
  9. Gently add 1-2 pretzels to the boiling water for about 60 seconds. Use a slotted spoon to remove the pretzels and drain well. Place on the baking sheet. Continue until all 8 pretzels have been boiled.
  10. In a small bowl, whisk the egg. Then brush the egg over each pretzel. Sprinkle each pretzel with salt.
  11. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. If the pretzels appear to be burning or getting too dark, reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue to bake for 2-3 minutes.
  12. Remove from the oven and brush each pretzel with melted butter. Let cool slightly.
  13. Prepare the Spicy Mustard Dipping Sauce by combining all the ingredients in a small bowl. (See ingredients below)
  14. Serve the pretzels warm with the dipping sauce on the side.
Spicy Mustard Dipping Sauce
4 Tbsp Grainy Mustard
2 Tbsp Yellow Mustard
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
3 Tsp Hot Sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and set aside or refrigerate until ready to use.
