Ingredients

cup water, warm
3.5 ounces of butter, melted
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon sugar
7 ounces of flour
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
poppy seeds

2 tablespoons of pesto sauce
2 tablespoons of red hot chili sauce
2 tablespoons of rhode island sauce
24 bacon
3.5 ounces of low moisture mozzarella, shredded

Ingredients

Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to 460 degrees F/240 degrees C.

2
Done

Mix the warm water and melted butter in your stand mixer bowl.

3
Done

Add the salt, sugar and mix.

4
Done

Sift the flour and add it to the bowl.

5
Done

Add the yolk, active dry yeast, and olive oil.

6
Done

Incorporate them with a spatula, then set the stand mixer on low speed, and make a dough.

7
Done

Flour your countertop and place the dough on it. Knead it, then cut the dough into small pieces. Shape the dough pieces into 6 German pretzels.

8
Done

Fill a large pot with water, add salt, and bring it to a boil.

9
Done

When the water starts boiling, lower 2 to 3 pretzels into the water bath — as many as will fit without crowding. Simmer for 30 seconds, then use a slotted spoon to flip the pretzels over.

10
Done

Lay a baking tray with parchment paper. Transfer the pretzels on it.

11
Done

Whisk the egg with milk and make some egg wash. Use the egg wash to coat the pretzels.

12
Done

Sprinkle poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and mixed seeds on the pretzels.

13
Done

Transfer the tray in the oven and bake the pretzels for 30 minutes.

14
Done

When ready, let the pretzels cool.

15
Done

Slice them horizontally. Spread pesto on 2 of them, chili sauce on other 2, and Rhode Island sauce on the last 2.

16
Done

Wrap 4 slices of bacon around each pretzel. Place them on the same baking tray.

17
Done

Top the pretzels with shredded mozzarella.

18
Done

Bake them for 15 more minutes at 360 degrees F/180 degrees C.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
