1 1/2 cups warm water (110 to 115 degrees F)
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
3 cups flour, plus more for dusting
2 tablespoons melted butter
2/3 cup baking soda
2 egg yolks beaten with 1 tablespoon water
Coarse sea salt
Super Cheesy Sauce, recipe follows
1 bottle beer
2 cups grated orange sharp Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup cream cheese, diced and softened
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno, minced
Salt and pepper
For a different taste, instead of coarse salt, use sesame seeds, poppy seeds, Parmesan or cinnamon sugar. To get the shiny brown crunchy shell, it's important to cook in boiling soda water for 30 seconds. Cooking it too long will make the pretzel too chewy. Also, allow enough time to rise at room temperature, or else they will rise too much in the oven. This sauce is good on anything: broccoli, tacos, burgers... the list is endless!
