Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 package (2¼ teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, melted
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
Toppings: Your choice of any or all

Instructions
 

  • In a large mixing bowl combine brown sugar, yeast, melted butter and water; whisk and let sit for 5 minutes or until frothy.
  • Add salt and flour to the yeast mixture.
  • Attach the paddle attachment to a stand mixer and mix until all flour is incorporated and the dough is pulling away from the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Remove paddle attachment and attach the dough hook to the mixer; "knead" for 2 minutes. You can also transfer dough to a clean work area and knead by hand for about 5 minutes.
  • Shape dough into a ball and coat all sides of dough with a little bit of oil.
  • Place dough in a medium bowl; cover with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm location for 1 hour or until dough is doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Divide prepared dough into 8 smaller balls.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball into a long rope.
  • Using a knife, cut 1 inch pieces from the rope and put the pieces on a plate(s). Repeat process with the rest of the dough. You'll have anywhere from 80 to 100 pieces.
  • Prepare 4 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Whisk one egg with 1 tablespoon water and set it aside.
  • In a large pot, bring 6 cups of water to a boil.
  • Carefully add in baking soda.
  • Boil 10 pieces of dough at a time for about a minute.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon and put them down on the prepared baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough pieces.
  • Brush egg wash over dough pieces.
  • Sprinkle with toppings.
  • Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
  • Serve with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce.
