How to make chorizo soft pretzel bread ?

The whole process of making this bread is a little bit time consuming, but the effort will pay off.

First, I make chorizo crumbs. I use quite dense chorizo sausage, not the soft one. I fry chorizo until done. Save the chorizo oil and grind chorizo into a food processor until I get crumbs.

Then I follow the standard bread baking process. I activate yeast in warm ( not hot!) liquid.

Please remember that you can kill yeast if you add it to a very warm liquid. Also, please check the expiry day of your yeast to avoid baking a rock!

Next I knead the dough until I get a smooth consistency. The colour of the dough will be orange/red due to adding chorizo crumbs and chorizo oil. Next step is to wait for the dough to proof in a warm place.

While I am waiting for the dough to proof, I am preparing the soda bath in which I will boil bread in, before baking. I always make sure that I have all utensils ready and I am prepared as will need to act fast.

When my bread dough is ready, I shape it, cook it in boiling water for few minutes and after that I bake bread for about 30 min. Please read the recipe carefully and make sure you understand the process.
