Homemade soft pretzels with honey mustard dipping sauce

20130103-170503

If you’ve never tasted homemade soft pretzels, you need to! They’re so good. This recipe (Here) in particular was really tasty, and also very basic. The dough turned out so silky! I may be a little weird, but I absolutely love bread dough! There’s something fantastic about the soft elastic texture of it. I always get excited when it turns out right! With the recipe, you only have about 45-50 minutes rising time total, and they turn out so fluffy! I was a little skeptical when I saw that the rising time was so short (10 minutes after you form the pretzels), but they didn’t let me down!

I made some with just butter and salt.

And of course some homemade honey mustard dipping sauce (recipe below).

Some cinnamon sugar pretzels. Since I was only making a few that were cinnamon sugar, I mixed a small amount of both ingredients in my hand and then sprinkled it over the pretzel.

Last but not least, garlic Parmesan. For this one, I added some garlic powder to melted butter, and then sprinkled it with grated Parmesan cheese.

The recipe linked to above makes roughly 8 pretzels. I wanted a little variety, so I divided my dough into 16 parts and made smaller pretzels.

For the honey mustard, I mix equal parts honey and mustard. That’s it. You can always tweak it to your own liking, but half and half is a good place to start. This stuff is SO good. I think it tastes a lot Subway’s addictive honey mustard sauce. I’ve never found a store bought honey mustard sauce to be quite equal.
