Stuffed Pretzels {a freezer friendly recipe}

One of my children's favorite snacks is stuffed pretzels. I love making them because I can make a bunch at one time and put them in the freezer for later.  You need to make these, your family with thank you.
One of my children’s favorite recipes is stuffed pretzels. They don’t really look like pretzels but they taste like them. I originally saw the recipe on a blog called Farmama, unfortunately the the blog is no longer being maintained.

These are super versatile and you roll them up like cinnamon rolls instead of pretzels. You can put vegetables like kale or spinach in them, or make them more like pizza with pepperoni and mozzarella, or sweet with cinnamon sugar and raisins.

I like to make a double batch and freeze some. These make a really great snack or lunch for my guys to take to work with them.

We also used only half the baking soda for the dunk and we skip the salt sprinkle.

Ingredients
  1. Stuffed Pretzels
  2. 5 cups flour (I use freshly ground whole wheat)
  3. 4 tsp yeast
  4. 1 tsp sugar
  5. 1 ¼  cup  warm water
  6. ¼  cup sugar
  7. 1 ½  tsp salt
  8. A bit of olive oil
  9. ½  cup baking soda
  10. Filling choices
  11. Pesto, provolone, kale and caramelized onion; pepperoni, pesto and mozzarella; cinnamon sugar and raisin
Instructions
  1. Dissolve the of yeast in 1 1/4 cup of water with 1 tsp. sugar.  Let stand about 10 minutes.
  2. Mix 5 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and a pinch of salt.
  3. Make a well in the middle and add about a Tablespoon of olive oil and the water/yeast mixture.
  4. If it is too dry add about one tablespoon of water at a time.
  5. Knead until the dough is smooth (about 7-8 minutes).
  6. Cover and place in a warm spot for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
  7. Make the filling - caramelize onions and kale, grate cheese, etc.
  8. Preheat oven to 450F
  9. When dough has doubled in size, roll it into a rectangular-ish shape, about 1/4 inch thick and spread the filling evenly over the surface. Roll up the rectangle and slice it into 12 equally sized pieces.
  10. Put each slice onto a sheet tray and let the (now stuffed) pretzels rise again until about doubled.
The Dunk - I only do the dunk on the savory ones, not the sweet ones
  1. A baking soda bath is what gives pretzels their distinct flavor. Mix together ¼  cup of baking soda and 4 cups of hot water. When the baking soda has dissolved, dunk the proofed pretzels one at a time, and set them back onto the sheet tray. Brush each pretzel with some olive oil.
  2. Bake at 450F until the pretzels are golden brown.
  3. Enjoy!
