Homemade Pretzel Rolls

Since Friday we here in Northern Michigan have been in a constant moving snow globe. The visibility has been about 1 mile, which makes looking out on the lake almost impossible. To brighten the day, I enjoyed an afternoon Spitzer while I tackled these pretzel rolls. I do realize alot of the recipes I have included lately are grains, so I will think of something fresh to include soon!!

The recipe for these tasty guys can be found here.

Ingredients –

– 1 cup of warm water

-1 (1/4oz) envelope active dry yeast

-Oil

– 2 3/4 cup of bread flour

-1 tbsp Truvia ( or granulated sugar)

– 1 tsp of salt

-6 cups of water

– 1/4 cup of baking soda

Directions –

1. Place warm water in mix mixing bowl sprinkle yeast on top, set aside for about 5 mins or until bubbles appear.

2. Coat large mixing bowl with oil

3. Whisk together in bowl flour, sugar and salt

4. Once the yeast is ready, using a mixer with dough hook mix flour mixture into water on lowest speed. Once dough is together turn up to medium until dough is elastic and smooth, ~8mins or so.

5. Form the dough into a ball and place inside oiled mixing bowl, place damp towel on bowl set aside until dough doubles in size, about 20-25 mins.

6. Once dough is ready, punch it down then knead with flour on dry surface until smooth and springs back. Also, line a baking tray with parchment paper and oil paper.

7. Divide the dough into 8 small balls. ( I did two bigger ones, then about 5 smaller ones or so).

8. Using knife, cut 2 inch crosses into each bun

9. Cover and let rise again for about 15-20mins.

10. In meantime, heat up the 6 cups of water in a large pot. Once dough is ready, pour baking soda into boiling water ( it will fizz up a little).

Now the fun part! Preheat oven to 425F.

11. Two at a time, put buns into the water for 2 mins. Once time is up, drain them in collider then place pack on tray. Repeat with all then sprinkle with salt.

This is what they look like after boiling.

12. Bake for 10-12 mins or until golden brown. ( I ended up baking them for about 25 mins until they were done.

This is them done!

I diced one up warm and served with mustard like a pretzel to try them. You can use them for sandwiches or burgers.

Hope you enjoy!
