5 cups 1.25 L Robin Hood® Best For Bread Homestyle White

  2. Pretzels: Combine warm water and sugar in large mixing bowl. Add yeast and let stand until mixture bubbles up.

  4. Glaze: Carefully brush pretzels with egg. Sprinkle with salt and sesame seeds.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. Eggs: Cook spinach according to package directions. Rinse with cold water and dry well. Chop and reserve. Whisk eggs and evaporated milk in a large bowl. Stir in reserved spinach and cheese.
  7. Stir in reserved spinach and cheese. Spray large skillet and heat over medium heat. Add egg mixture. Stir gently until moist curds form. Serve eggs on the side or as a breakfast sandwich with bacon, lettuce and/or tomato.
