1 1/2 cups warm (not hot) water
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 1/4 (or 1 package) active dry yeast
4 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
4 1/2 cups flour
vegetable or canola oil
2 quarts water
1/2 cup baking soda
egg beaten or melted butter for brushing tops
coarse sea salt
Using the dough hook, mix in the salt and flour on low speed just until combined. Increase speed to medium and continue mixing until dough is smooth and starts forming into a ball. Remove dough from bowl and shape into a ball using your hands. Coat a large bowl with canola/vegetable oil. Set dough in oiled bowl, roll dough around so it is coated with oil. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot until the dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Bring water to a boil in large pot.
Cheese Sauce (I suggest American or cheddar cheese sauce). Enjoy!
