Sesame Pretzel Rolls

Just last week I made this recipe for these pretzel rolls, and.. they really taste like pretzels…..regular standard pretzels, but with a chewy, appealing texture – my children were eating them, literally out of the oven!

So if you like pretzels, and you’re looking for an idea to shake things up a bit with your typical breads, this simple idea is for you. You can eat them plain or as bread for a sandwich, either way for best results serve them warm.


  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 3/4 Tbsp dry yeast
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 4 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1 egg


  1. Place the yeast,water and sugar in the bowl of your mixer and wait for the yeast  to bubble.
  2. Add the flour,salt and oil and mix well until a dough forms.
  3. Cover the dough and  rise for one hour.
  4. Divide the dough into 10-12 pieces and roll them into balls.
  5. Place the balls on a lined cookie sheets, cover and allow to rise for another half hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  7. In a large pot, bring 4 quarts of water to a low boil.
  8. Remove from heat and slowly add the baking soda.
  9. Place the pot back on heat and simmer.
  10. Place 3-4 of the rolls at a time into the pot.
  11. Poach for 30 seconds and then carefully turn the roll over and poach for another 30 seconds.
  12. Remove with a slotted spoon and put them back on the cookie sheet.
  13. Repeat with the remaining rolls.
  14. Using a pastry brush, brush each roll with the beaten egg, making sure to coat all sides completely & then prinkle each roll with sesame seeds.
  15. Using a sharp straight edged knife, cut an “X” shape in the top of each roll.
  16. Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.
Serve warm!
