Homemade Soft Pretzels

As often as I've baked bread, I've never made 'Homemade Soft Pretzels' until today. I was planning to bake some bread and having just seen a recipe that Alton Brown had posted on the internet, I used it as my guide but then (you know me) I went about and changed the recipe.  The first alteration was that I used a sourdough bread recipe and then I decided to add garlic powder, onions and herbs. Oh yeah - very good choice! The recipe calls for boiling them first then baking ... and I must say they turned out GREAT!!

You're making me drool! Those look so good. I imagine Thom had to give them the final test with a big brewski in one hand and a pretzel in the other. lol ~ I liked Dars suggestion... about 24 dozen of those for the wedding... that would be okay!! OR.. I'll settle for one dozen the first week of July when you're visiting the farm. We're going to Staci's tonight for supper... I think I'm going to go whip up a batch of these. Thanks for the inspiration!!
