Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
First, make the dough. Combine the Water (1 cup) , Active Dry Yeast (1 pckg) and Granulated Sugar (1 Tbsp) in the bowl of a stand mixer and gently give it a quick stir. Let it foam up and bubble for 10 minutes.
Step 2
Then add in the Salt (1/2 Tbsp) , Dried Parsley (1/2 tsp) , Dried Tarragon (1/2 tsp) , Garlic Powder (1/4 tsp) , and Asiago Cheese (1 Tbsp) .
Step 3
Turn on the dough hook and let it all come together for a minute on low speed. While the hook is still going, slowly add in the All-Purpose Flour (3 cups) . It will become a crumbly dough. Add in the Olive Oil (1 tsp) , then turn off the mixer.
Step 4
If it is still too dry, add a bit of warm water. Bring it together into a ball and knead it in the bowl for 2-3 minutes. Lightly grease the bowl with more olive oil and cover it with a damp towel. Set it aside to rise for an hour.
Step 5
When the hour is up, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide it into 8 equal wedges. Take the first wedge and roll it out into a thin log that is about 5-6 inches long. Use a bench scraper or knife to cut it into 5 equal pieces and set them aside. Repeat this with the other 7 wedges of dough to get 40 pieces total. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) and get out a sheet tray.
Step 6
Line the sheet tray with a silicone mat or parchment paper, then get out a medium saucepan. Bring the Water (8 cups) to a boil, then add the Dark Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp) . Slowly add in the Baking Soda (1/4 cup) since it will really make the water bubble up and possibly boil over. Turn the heat to medium.
Step 7
Boil the pretzel bite pieces for 30 seconds in the saucepan in batches of 10. Scoop them out with a slotted spoon onto the lined sheet tray as they cook. Line them up nicely and brush them all with the beaten Egg (1) . Sprinkle all of the pieces with a little extra asiago on top and a generous sprinkle of Sea Salt (to taste) .
Step 8
Bake the pretzel bites for 15-18 minutes, until they become completely golden on top and baked through. Serve them immediately warm with either ketchup or warmed up marinara sauce! Enjoy!
