Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the yeast and warm water. Let sit until the yeast dissolves (about 2 to 3 minutes).

Stir the sugar into the yeast mixture until dissolved.

Add the flour and salt. Stir to combine. The dough will be crumbly. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead with floured hands until smooth.

In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg. Set aside.

Divide the dough into 5 portions. Working with one at a time, roll the dough balls out into ropes that are about 1-inch in diameter. Use a sharp knife to cut 1-inch lengths of dough.

Drop each of the dough pieces into the egg mixture and immediately transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Place them about 1/2 inch apart. Sprinkle with coarse salt.

Slide the tray into the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Repeat the process until all the dough has been cooked.

Melt the butter and brush all the pretzel bites with butter, then sprinkle with more salt.
