1 & 1/2 Cups WARM water
1 Pkg. Fast Rising Yeast
4 Cups Bread Flour ( regular flour is ok but bread flour is best)
1 TSP Sugar
1 TSP Salt ( I used Sea Salt)
1 Beaten Egg White with 1 TBS Water added
Extra Flour
Coarse Sea Salt for Sprinkling
 Dissolve yeast in the warm water & let sit for 5 minutes. Stir & then add the sugar & salt.
 Stir all of it into the flour. Work through & add more water if needed. Knead in the bowl, cover & let rise double in size about 1 hour. Turn out on a floured surface & knead again . Now pinch of nice sized pieces & twirl & roll between your hands to make long ropes about 12 inches long. You will get 8 ropes. Twist into pretzel shapes & lay on a baking sheet. 


Brush with the egg white & water that you beat together with a fork. Now sprinkle with the coarse sea salt & bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown!  Serve WARM & with mustard if you like! MAKES 8 NICE BIG PRETZELS!
