Homemade Soft Pretzels
Alton Brown recipes are always a good idea, because the Food Network chef knows a thing or two (million) about food. The Cutthroat Kitchen host and longtime TV favorite is known for treating cooking like science (nitrus oxide cold brew, anyone?), and his vast culinary knowledge makes his recipes that much more desirable. One of his biggest pet peeves is when people start a recipe without reading it all the way through, so you know he writes reliable and thorough recipes. These are 23 standout recipes either adapted from or directly from the chef, from homemade soft pretzels to creamy stove-top mac and cheese.
