First I had to get warm water and put in in a large mixing bowl then adding yeast and sugar. After mixing that up I added the flour. Since I was trying to be healthy I added two cups of white flour and two cups of whole wheat flour. By the third cup of flour it was pretty obvious I need to start working out because my arms were killing me.
After mixing it all together I ended up with a big ball of dough. I had to knead this for five minutes, which told me again that my arms need a little work.
Then I had to break pieces off the large dough ball and roll them into thin long strings. Its really important to get them very thin or else baking will take forever I think I ended up doing mine a little too thick. After that is done though you twist it into pretzel form.
Then beat one egg to dip the pretzels into. Do both sides.
After that throw them onto a pan that either has a silicone mat or wax paper. Then just put them in the oven to bake. As you can see some of my pretzels didn’t quite get shaped the right way… Lazy cook.
Well I know I said just put them in the oven, but I actually added salt to them and then put them in the oven. They didn’t taste too bad, but I felt like they were missing something.
