We spent three years in Southern Bavaria long ago and far away. I loved the Backerei, and not really even the sweets…the brezen – pretzels, and brezen semmel – pretzel rolls.
At Costco last spring, I found some Pretzel Slider Rolls that were pretty good. They got me thinking. I should be able to MAKE Brezen Semmel.
So, with the help of my buddy, Google, I found this recipe:
This was the third time I baked them using this recipe. Definitely a keeper! Not difficult at all – I do it all by hand (I do not own a stand mixer or bread machine). This time, I made them smaller than the recipe describes. I am not using them for sandwiches, just for snacking, maybe as a dinner roll. I made 24 (the recipe makes 12 “sandwich size”).
