A wonderfully easy but delicious Pretzel roll recipe, great for sandwiches, with a great meal or alone with whatever spread takes your fancy!
  • Dough
  • 1⅛ cup warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons non dry milk
  • 1¼ tsp instant yeast
  • Course Salt (all I had was our typical sea salt and it worked fine)
  • Water Bath
  • 2 quarts water
  • ¼ cup baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  1. Add all ingredients except Course salt to your bread machine in order, (put salt in the liquid where it won't touch the yeast), use Dough setting and let it do the work!
  2. (Mixer instructions:
  3. Mix and knead the dough ingredients — by hand, or mixer — to make a smooth, slightly sticky dough.
  4. Allow the dough to rise in a lightly greased bowl, covered, for about 1 hour, until doubled.)
  5. Transfer dough to a floured surface.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  7. Divide dough into 8 portions and make into balls. I do this by massaging dough into a log then cut in half, and again cut those pieces in half.
  8. Allow to rest for 15 minutes.
  9. For water bath add soda and salt to water and bring to boil.
  10. Gently press each ball into a flat bun shape, drop each bun into your boiling water bath and cook 30 seconds on each side. Some place 4 in at a time but I did one at a time. Remove buns to a cooling rack as you cook the others.
  11. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper and spray or grease liberally with butter, cooking spray or olive oil. These buns like to stick but I had no problem when using the parchment. Place buns on parchment paper and with sharp or serrated knife cut and X into top about ½ inch deep. Sprinkle with salt.
  12. Bake 20 - 24 minutes
  13. You can remove buns to a cooling rack ASAP but with the parchment I did not need to. But you see what works best for you.
