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.

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.)
