Soft Pretzel Nuggets Recipe

Did you ever buy a soft pretzel from a stand in a big city or sporting event? Now you can make your very own! If you love to bake and have a fondness for soft pretzels, this recipe was made for you. These pretzels pair well with mustard, melted cheese and ice cream!

 

Soft Pretzel Nuggets

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 3 ounces unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil
  • 3 quarts water
  • 3/4 cup baking soda
  • 1 whole egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon cold water
  • Coarse sea salt

Directions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the water, sugar, yeast, and butter and mix with the dough hook until combined. Let sit for 5 minutes. Add the salt and flour and mix on low speed until combined. Increase the speed to medium and knead until the dough is smooth and begins to pull away from the side of the bowl, about 3 to 4 minutes. If the dough appears too wet, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. Remove the dough from the bowl, place on a flat surface and knead into a ball with your hands.
  2. Oil a bowl with vegetable oil, add the dough and turn to coat with the oil. Cover with a clean towel and let rise in a warm spot until the dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425. Bring the water to a boil in a large pot over high heat and add the baking soda.
  4. Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a flat surface. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and roll each piece into a long rope measuring about 22 inches. Cut the dough into one inch pieces. In small batches (about 15 at a time), boil the pretzel bites in the water solution for about 30 seconds.  Remove with a large slotted spoon and place pretzel bites on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Make sure they are not touching. Brush the tops with the egg wash and season with coarse sea salt. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Remove to a baking rack and let rest 5 minutes before eating.

 

Microwave Potato Chips Recipe

potato slices picThe microwave; A life saver for TV dinners and warming up our beverages and left-overs. What would you say if I told you there is a recipe that exists that actually makes crispy potato chips – in the microwave? You’re probably thinking the same thing I thought when I found this recipe in Healthy Eats eats magazine about two years ago. The only potato I ever put in the microwave are Ore-Ida’s Steam N’ Mash potatoes, or, a quick baked potato. (Just a little F.Y.I.;  I am not a fan of instant potatoes-at all. But I have to hand to Ore-Ida; Their microwavable  Steam N’ Mash potatoes do not taste like instant potatoes. They are delicious.)

OK. Back to the microwave potato chips. Y-U-M! You will be delightfully surprised when you pull these potatoes out of the microwave. They are crispy, flavorful, and really taste like a potato chip! Microwaves tend to make foods soggy, right? How can a potato come out crispy like a potato chip? It does. This recipe is healthier than the potato chips in the grocery store and your family and friends will be amazed at how you made such a good potato – in the microwave! All it takes are a few simple ingredients, a microwave, a plate, and a good eye!

Microwave Potato Chips

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 pounds Yukon Gold or red potatoes, unpeeled, scrubbed
  • 2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray

Directions

  1. Coat a large microwave-safe plate with cooking spray.
  2. Arrange as many potato slices in a single layer on the plate.
  3. Microwave, uncovered, on high until some slices start to brown, 2 to 3 minutes (depending upon potato thickness and microwave power).
  4. Turn slices over and continue microwaving until they start to crisp and brown around the edges ( about 35 seconds for very thin potato slices to 2 to 4 minutes for thicker slices.)
  5. Check frequently (You will need to turn over and rearrange the potatoes to avoid scorching)
  6. Transfer chips to another plate and allow to cool completely.
  7. Repeat process with remaining slices.
