This pretzel bread recipe is super simple. Stuff a pretzel sandwich roll with ham & cheese for a lunch box treat! Makes one pretzel loaf and six rolls. It certainly doesn’t last for long around our house.
Pretzels = Summer
Pretzels are a summertime treat at all American amusement parks, state fairs and other community events. Usually covered with cinnamon and sugar or dipped in chocolate sauce or covered cheese or mustard. Another favourite is to make pretzel bites and cover them with cheese, beef chili and onions.
The best pretzels are, of course, German. We’ve been searching a long time for a proper recipe for German Pretzel Rolls. Not just twists and snacks but a roll that we’ve been served in many of the delis in Berlin and Hamburg.
Making Pretzel Bread
This pretzel bread recipe is super versatile. It is based on Laura’s recipe that we found here. Instead of making two loaves, we made one loaf and then six delicious rolls for soups and sandwiches. You can, of course, roll out the dough and make them into proper pretzels.
Pretzel Sandwich Rolls
The crust on these pretzel sandwich rolls is so chewy that you can carve out the middle and fill your favourite soup for an edible soup bowl. For sandwiches, ham & cheese, salami & cheese, cheese & pickle, cheese & caramelised onion chutney – you get the point. We had fried egg and cheese for brunch.
More Uses for Pretzel Bread
We sliced the loaf and served with sweet honey butter for brunch. The combination of salt and sweet was divine. As always with enriched bread, any leftovers make a yummy bread and butter pudding or french toast.
Pretzel Bread & Rolls
Shape the dough into two balls if you want two loaves. We made one loaf and then cut the second ball to make 6 sandwich rolls.
