Big Soft Pretzels



12 pieces



1 tbsp. dry yeast
5 to 6 cups bread mix
1-1/2 cup lukewarm water
2 eggs, beaten


1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp. coarse salt
1/2 cup butter, melted


Lightly grease 2 large baking sheets. In a large bowl dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. Blend in 2 eggs and butter. Add 5 cups bread mix. Stir well. Add additional bread mix to make a soft but not too sticky dough. Knead approximately 5 minutes, until dough is smooth. Roll pieces of dough into ropes about 1/2-inch in diameter and 18 to 24 inches long. Form into pretzel shapes. (For pretzel sticks cut dough into 5 to 6 inch lengths.) Place on prepared baking sheets. Preheat oven to 425°F. Brush tops of pretzels with beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake immediately 12 to 15 minutes, until brown and crisp.

For a chewier pretzel, drop pretzel-shaped dough into a pan of boiling water. When dough floats to the top of the water, remove it. Preheat oven to 400°F. Brush with egg and sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake approximately 30 minutes.
