How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place warm water in large warm bowl (heat it in the microwave or with hot water).
  • Sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved.
  • Add milk, oil, sugar, salt and 1-1/2 cups flour; blend well.
  • Mix in additional flour to make soft dough. Knead on a lightly-floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.
  • Place in a greased bowl, turning to grease the top.
  • Cover; let rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  • Punch dough down; divide into 24 pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a 16-inch rope.
  • To make pretzels, curve the ends of each rope to make a circle; cross the ends at the top.
  • Twist ends once and lay them down over the bottom of the circle.
  • Place the pretzels on greased baking sheets.
  • Cover and let rest in a warm, draft-free place for 5 to 10 minutes, until risen slightly.
  • Brush the pretzels with the beaten egg mixture and sprinkle with the selected topping.
  • Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes or until golden.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Serve them with German-style mustard.
