In a large mixing bowl combine 1 cup flour, finely crushed pretzels, ranch style salad sressing and seasoning mix, sugar, yeast and baking soda. Heat water, milk and butter until very warm(120 degrees to 130 degrees). Add to dry ingredients; beat at low speed of electric mixer until moistened. Add cheese. Increase speed to medium; continue beating 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead 8-10 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic. Shape into a round loaf. Place on a prepared cookie sheet or baking pan. Cover; let rise in warm place about 30 minutes or until doubled in size. Combine egg white and water in a small bowl. Brush onto bread. If desired, sprinkle lightly with kosher salt.
