Pretzels and Cheese Sauce 

Homemade soft pretzels and pretzel dogs, fresh out of the oven ♨️🤩
Paired with silky smooth cheddar cheese fondue 🧀😍
A must try combo 🥨🫕👌🏻

First up, the ingredients:

To make the pretzels, you’ll need:
🥨 4 1/2 cups flour
🥨 1/4 cup brown sugar
🥨 4 tablespoons melted butter
🥨 2 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
🥨 1 1/2 cups warm milk 
🥨 1 teaspoon sugar
🥨 Egg wash: 1 egg + 1 tablespoon water
🥨 Toppings: everything bagel seasoning and sesame seeds
🥨 A pot of boiling water and 1/4 cup baking soda to dip the pretzels in before baking them
🥨 More melted butter to brush the pretzels with as soon as I come out of the oven

For the cheese fondue, you’ll need:
🫕 1 can evaporated milk
🫕 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
🫕 2 teaspoons hot sauce, I used sriracha 
🫕 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
🫕 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 
🫕 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
🫕 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 
🫕 Dash of salt 

Next up, the pretzels:

🥨 First, combine warm milk, yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar. Mix, cover and set it aside for 10 minutes.
🥨 Add the flour, brown sugar, melted butter, mix until well combined, then knead the dough until it’s smooth and pulls away from the sides of the bowl, about 10 minutes. Cover dough and set it aside in a warm spot for 1 hour, until it doubles in size.
🥨 Divide the dough into equal size pieces and shape them into pretzels and pretzel dogs as shown in the video. 
🥨 Bring a pot of water to a boil, add baking soda and drop 3 pretzels into the boiling water at a time and boil them for just 20-30 seconds. Any more than that, your pretzels will have a metallic taste. This step is what gives pretzels that iconic flavor, chewy texture, helps deepen their golden color in the oven, and locks in the super soft interior. 
🥨 Using a slotted spatula, lift the pretzel out of the water and allow as much of the excess water to drip off. Place pretzel onto prepared baking sheet, brush them with egg wash and add your favorite toppings. Here I used everything bagel seasoning and sesame seeds.
🥨 Bake pretzels in a 400F preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes until they’re dark golden it color. 
🥨 For added deliciousness and a shiny look, brush the pretzels with melted butter as soon they come out of the oven. 

Lastly, the cheese sauce! It is so delicious and comes together in just a few minutes. It goes perfectly well with fries, hot dogs, nachos, tortilla chips and it’s guaranteed to take your homemade pretzels to a whole new level 🥨🫕🤩
All you have to do is combine the following ingredients in a sauce pan, mix and simmer it will stirring until the cheese melts; and VOILA! 🥨🫕👌🏻

🫕 1 can evaporated milk
🫕 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
🫕 2 teaspoons hot sauce, I used sriracha 
🫕 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
🫕 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 
🫕 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
🫕 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 
🫕 Dash of salt 

Bon Appétit 🌻❤️
