Pretzel Rolls

My family loves pretzel rolls.  Actually they like anything pretzel related – hard or soft.  These rolls take extra work but are worth the happiness from your family when you finish this delicious treat.

You could serve them as a carb at your dinner table or you could use the rolls to make a delicious sandwich.  Some ideas for a sandwich are a lunch meat sandwich, hamburgers, sloppy Joes, or pulled pork.

I start the dough in the bread machine.  So that it could do some of the work for me.
