I'm not sure when Chris' love for pretzel bread started, but he has always been one to enjoy it whenever it appears on a menu. His recent addiction to the pretzel bread version of hot pockets lead to our baking venture to create our own.
We used the Fleischmann's sponsored recipe found on All Recipes and pretty much stuck to the directions.

As you can see, Chris did the majority of the prep while I took pictures and assisted with the boiling solution and egg wash.
One of the interesting parts, I found, was boiling the dough for 2 minutes prior to baking the bread.
We have actually tried this recipe twice. The first time Chris followed it to a T and came out with two great loaves. The second time around, we attempted to double the recipe and honestly the results were not as great as the first time. We have one package of rapid rise yeast left, so we'll give it one more go...sticking to the measurements as it.
Have you tried any fun recipes lately?
