Simply Outrageous! Very easy to make-great flavor-LOVE the crusty topping and soft? Yeah, these are soft and they rock! I will be using these rolls for Chick-Fil-A clone sandwichs tonight. The "sample" I tried was perfect warm with melted butter-this will be my new "go-to" sandwich roll recipe. I made 10 rather than 12, I wanted them a little bigger! Thanks for Posting!

These are just what they say they are-- easy and soft pretzel rolls! I followed the instructions and ingredients exactly and I had very good results. I will say that if you want the nice dark traditional pretzel color on these (see my photo) you might want to use egg yolk whisked with about a tablespoon of water and not the egg white. Also, these really are quite soft and fluffy with a delectable pretzel crust and not dense and chewy throughout like a soft pretzel or bretzel roll (bagel-like) you may have had overseas. While I enjoyed it very much, I found the texture does not really support the use of a lot of salt on the top to enhance the flavor. I would suggest to use a light hand, for decor only. I'd put half as much on mine next time. That said, it is an excellent and easy to follow recipe. Mine took the full 15 minutes to bake and darken properly. Thanks Codychop!

we love this recipe in our house! i have made it for dinner rolls, sandwich buns, and going to try making pretzel shapes for football sunday. my only adjustments have been to double it to make sure that everyone walks away happy.

I have been a lurker on this site for a year or so and I never joined; however, b/c of your recipe I decided that I would join to say thanks. I made the pretzels as you said and most turned out great. The few that I cooked too long did not plump b/c I did not follow directions. I will make this again in a variety of ways until I perfect it. Thanks!!! It was super easy.

I followed the recipe, they did NOT come together at all. I had to add a ton of flour resulting in a huge amount of dough. I'm hoping they will work out in the end but I'm skeptical.

7 cups of water 3 cups of flour? This makes great dough.

Easy is right, and so good. Used for pulled pork sandwiches, even the kids who insisted they didn't like either the pork or the bread ate the whole thing after only one bite. Love the salty, crusty outer crust with the soft center. I can think of so many things these rolls will be perfect with. They hold up well to the filling too

This recipe is wonderful!!! They did not last long in my house.I left the salt off & egg white and brushed butter on them when they came out of the oven.They were a little on the small size for sandwiches so next time I will make 8 instead of 12 rolls.I just love this recipe!!

This is the best I have come across, have been searching for a while and these are fantastic. The other recipes for pretzel buns came out too dense. This recipe is awesome. Thank you for posting!

Soft, chewy and slightly sweet with a beautiful looking crust. These come together very quickly - which is good because I ended up having to make a second batch on the first day I made them! I definitely recommend cooking them long enough to get that nice reddish brown crust - they are moist enough inside that you don't have to worry so much about overcooking them!
