Ham & cheese pretzel

  1. 1. HAPPY APRIL 26!HAPPY PRETZELS DAY!!
  2. 2. We had some people over a whileback, so it was the perfect opportunityto finally make them! I had nevermade soft pretzels before, but I dohave deliciously wonderful memoriesof them. Back in my poor, single years(as opposed to my current poor,married years), I was a waitron atTimberwolves games. Isnt that afunny word? Waitron? Anyway,before the madness began eachnight, we had the option to eateither a free hot dog or a free softpretzel. I usually opted for the pretzel,along with a container of warm,gooey cheese for dipping. I never gottired of those things.I dont think I have bitten into a soft pretzel since my waitron days, which seriouslyseems like a lifetime ago. So when I bit into these delicious little bites, mytastebuds did cartwheels! Reunited with the beloved soft pretzel!
  3. 3. INGREDIENTSTo start off with this gourmetfood recipe, in a smallbowl, combine the ff.:• 2 tablespoons brownsugar• 1 cup warm milk (110-115degrees F)• Stir until the sugar isdissolved.• In a large bowl, combine:• 2 1/2 cups flour• Warm milk mixture• 1 package (1/4 oz.) instantdry yeast
  4. 4. Stir until a soft dough forms. Add more flour as needed (up to 1/2 cup). Turn thedough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead a few times, forming asmooth ball.Brush the inside of a largeclean bowl with olive oil.Transfer the dough to thebowl and cover tightly withplastic wrap. Allow it to risein a warm, draft-free area forabout 2 hours, or until thedough has doubled in sizeand bubbles appear on thesurface.
  5. 5. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide it into 4 equal pieces.Lightly dust a rolling pin with flour and roll each piece of dough into roughlya 12x4-inch rectangle. As you can see, my rectangles are not quite rectangles.
  6. 6. With the long sides facing you, place the following ingredients onto thebottom third of each piece of dough:• A quarter of 1/2 cup finely chopped ham• A quarter of 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  7. 7. Roll the dough as tightly asyou, starting with the longEdge holding the ham andcheese.Cut each roll into 12 equal pieces.
  8. 8. Transfer the pieces to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Let them rest, uncovered,at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  9. 9. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil. Add 4 teaspoons of baking soda to the boilingwater and reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Boil the pretzels in batches,cooking for about 20 seconds each and turning once. Ill be honest, this processwas a little bit stressful (hence, no photos), and I had a handful of casualties.They should look slightly puffed when they are done. Use a slotted spoon totransfer them back to the baking sheet.
  10. 10. Bake in the preheated oven until they are puffed and golden, about 15 minutes.
  11. 11. Brush with 4 tablespoons of melted butter and sprinkle with1-2 tablespoons of coarse kosher salt.Source: http://www.pipandebby.com/pip-ebby/2012/2/27/ham-cheese-pretzel-bites.html
