1 tablespoon sugar

1 packet dry active yeast

4½ cups flour

3 tablespoons oil, divided

⅔ cup baking soda

2 eggs, beaten

2. In a bowl, mix water, salt, and sugar until combined. Add yeast, and let rest 5 minutes until yeast starts to foam.

3. Add flour and 2 tablespoons of oil, and mix thoroughly until a dough forms. 4. Remove the dough and use the remaining oil to cover the bowl.

5. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and leave in a warm place for 1 hour.

6. Cut dough into 8 pieces and roll them out into thin ropes, twisting the two ends to form a pretzel shape.

7. Add baking soda to a large pot of water, and bring to a rolling boil. Boil each pretzel for 30 seconds per side.

8. Transfer pretzels to a baking sheet, brush with egg wash, and sprinkle with salt. 9. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.

10. Enjoy!
