  • 1
    Preheat oven to 425°F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, combine the yeast and warm water. Let sit until the yeast dissolves (about 2-3 minutes).
  • 3
    Stir the sugar into the yeast mixture until dissolved.
  • 4
    Add the flour and salt. Stir to combine. The dough will be crumbly. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead with floured hands until smooth.
  • 5
    In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg. Set aside.
  • 6
    Divide the dough into 5 portions. Working with one at a time, roll the dough balls out into ropes that are about 1 inch in diameter. Use a sharp knife to cut 1-inch lengths of dough.
  • 7
    Drop each of the dough pieces into the egg mixture and immediately transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Place them about 1/2 inch apart. Sprinkle with coarse salt.
  • 8
    Slide the tray into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown. Repeat the process until all the dough has been cooked.
  • 9
    Melt the butter and brush all the pretzel bites with butter, then sprinkle with more salt.

Expert Tips

  • Hint: spray the baking sheet with cooking oil before laying the parchment down – it will hold the paper in place.
