  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
  • Pour milk into the bowl of a stand mixer (see cooks note if you do not have a stand mixer), sprinkle yeast over top, add honey and stir. Allow yeast to bloom for 5-10 minutes. Once foamy, it is ready.
  • Fill an 8 quart pot with water and bring to a boil over medium high heat. In a small bowl beat egg and 2 tablespoons water. Set aside. Wash counter top to roll out dough, but do not flour it.
  • Add flour and salt to mixer. Knead for about 3 minutes until the dough comes together. Add more flour a tablespoon at a time as needed. Dough should be tacky when you pull it out of the mixer, not sticky.
  • Form dough into a ball. Then cut ball into 64 (somewhat) even pieces. First quarter the ball of dough. Roll each quarter into an 18-22" strand. Cut that into 4 equal pieces. Then cut each piece into 4 equal pieces. When you are done you will have 64 pieces.
  • Carefully, add baking soda to boiling water. USE CAUTION: IT WILL BUBBLE UP. Place dough bites into boiling water about 10 at a time. Remove with a slotted spoon after 30 seconds. Place on parchment paper to cool.
  • Brush egg wash onto each one and sprinkle with coarse salt.
  • Bake for 7-9 minutes until the tops are browned and enjoy!
  • *COOKS NOTE: You can mix the dough by hand if you do not have a stand mixer. Turn dough out onto floured counter top and knead for 3-5 minutes until dough is no longer sticky. Proceed with remaining instructions.
