Garlic-Butter Pretzel Bites


1 cup milk
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, plus more for greasing pan
1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 1/4 cups flour, plus more for kneading
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup baking soda
3 cups warm water
3 teaspoons garlic salt


Heat a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Add milk and 2 tablespoons butter. Heat to 110°F, then pour into a large glass bowl and sprinkle yeast on top. Let sit for 2 minutes then stir in brown sugar and 1 cup flour with a wooden spoon.

Stir in remaining flour and salt until dough forms into a ball then turn out onto a heavily floured surface. Dough will be sticky. Knead for 5 minutes, adding additional flour as necessary, then place into a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place somewhere warm for 1 hour, or until dough has doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 450°F and lightly grease 3 half sheet pans. Combine baking soda and warm water in a large, shallow dish then whisk to dissolve baking soda.

Punch dough down then turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Using a bench scraper or knife, cut dough into 8 sections. Roll each section until 1-inch thick, then cut into 1-inch-long pieces. Dunk pieces into baking soda and water mixture then place onto greased pans. Bake for 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

Melt remaining butter and stir in garlic salt. Dunk warm pretzel bites in butter then place on a cooling rack to let excess butter drip off. Serve warm.
