Pretzel Rolls

We discovered this recipe for pretzel rolls in the winter. They were great with a bowl of soup on a cold winter day.

For Father's Day, we had hamburgers and I was asked to make pretzel rolls for buns.


I added water, yeast, and sugar to a mixing bowl and let it sit to proof for a few minutes.

Then flour and salt was added to the bowl.

I let the Kitchen Aid do all the mixing and kneading.

Into a bowl the dough went and outside into the heat with a damp cloth over it to rise.

The dough then got divided into even round balls...

...to rise again.

While the dough was rising, I heated up a pot with water and baking soda. Once the dough rose enough, each roll sat in the boiling water for a minute or so.

Out of the bath, each roll got an egg wash...

...and a coating of salt.

I took a knife and sliced each roll with an "X".

And in to the oven they went.


The pretzel rolls were a big hit and the size was perfect for a hamburger. 

To find the recipe I used go ~here~.

Owen and I made bagels last month and they use a very similar process. Both delicious breads! (It's hard to find a bread I don't like, though.)
