⭐️Cut biscuits into bite-sized pieces. Using kitchen scissors or a knife, cut the biscuits into 6 pieces (or 4 for larger pretzels). Pinch two of the ends together forming a nugget shape.
⭐️Add baking soda to water. Carefully add baking soda to the boiling water. Be careful as it will bubble up when the baking soda is added. Using a tong or slotted spoon, add a portion of the biscuit nuggets to the water, making sure they aren't overcrowded. Boil for about 20 seconds or until they start to get puffy. Use the tongs or slotted spoon to remove the dough.
Place dough onto a baking sheet. Place the dough onto baking sheets. Repeat until all the dough has been boiled.
Prepare the egg wash. Crack the egg into a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon of water then whisk with the fork. Using a pastry brush or spoon, coat each piece of dough with the egg wash. Sprinkle with coarse salt.
⭐️Bake. Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops start to get nice and browned. Serve as is, or dip in cheese dip or honey mustard sauce.
