These Quick Soft Pretzel Bites with Herb Brushed butter are so addicting you better get ready to make more than one batch!

For those who love garlic knots which is a family favorite of ours, here is a great little soft garlic pretzel that is every bit as good and so easy to make. You will not believe how quick and easy these come together, no rising the dough, just mix, cut, boil 30 seconds, bake and eat (or use your favorite dip) but you really don't need a thing!

They are fabulous the way they are.

Quick Soft Pretzels

prep time: 10 mins cook time: 15 mins total time: 25 mins
This is a step by step recipe for making soft pretzel bites. A soft pretzel dough and a perfect snack anytime.

ingredients:


2 tablespoons sugar
1 packet dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
3 - 1/4 cups flour
1 - 1/4 warmed cup half and half

instructions:


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Prepare a cookie sheet with Silpat or parchment paper.

in a large bowl using an electric mixer, add warmed half and half to a large electric mixing bowl with paddle. Let mixture sit in the bowl and stand around 10 minutes.

Add flour, salt and mix well in a stand mixer for around 4 minutes.

 Add regular tap water to a 5-quart saucepan and fill with the addition of  + 1/4 cup baking soda added leaving 3 inches from the top.

Roll out the dough, cut into 4 pieces then roll into long ropes and then cut evenly with a sharp knife to make pretzel sticks around a thumbs length and a 1/2 inch wide. 

Place around 6 to 8 pieces into the boiling water at a time for around 30 seconds. Then remove with a slotted spoon add to a Silpat mat lined a cookie sheet or lined with parchment paper cookie sheet.

Brush with some beaten egg mixed with a tablespoon of water and sprinkle with coarse salt (I used pink salt).

Bake until tops are nicely browned around 9 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness you rolled them out too.

We love them brushed with herb and garlic or dipped in mustard and then the boys love these dipped in melted Mexican style cheese dip but again they are great plain!
