Burrata Filled Pretzel Rolls

Ingredients for pretzels
4 teaspoons active dry yeast + 1 tbs sugar
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
5 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup baking soda
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 cups + 1 tbs hot water
1/4 cup kosher salt (to sprinkle on top)
1lb fresh Burrata

1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and 1 teaspoon of white sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1 1/2 tsp salt (not the finishing salt). Make a well in the center and add the oil and yeast mixture. Combine and form into a dough. If the mixture is still dry, add another tablespoon of water.

3. Knead the dough until smooth, about 7 to 8 minutes or use a stand mixer with the hook attachment. Lightly oil a large bowl and place the dough in the center of the bowl. Toss the dough around to coat with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 - 2 hours.

4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In another large bowl, dissolve the baking soda in hot water.

5. Once the dough has risen, put the dough on a lightly floured surface and start cutting it into 2" rounds. Slice each piece open and stuff with about a teaspoon of burratta then roll each piece into small ball. Once all of the dough is shaped, dip each pretzel bite into the baking soda mixture and place on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt.

6. Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, until lightly browned. Watch carefully! Serve warm. Best the first day.

NOTE: We brushed our pretzels with the baking soda water which is why they aren't evenly brown all around. Tastes the same just looks a little funny!
