Soft Pretzel Rolls

The best way to celebrate a Friday is with a delicious pretzel roll.  I needed hotdog rolls for one of my delicious German inspired gourmet hotdogs (recipe coming soon), so it got me thinking.  Why not make pretzel rolls for a really delicious treat.

These rolls are soft in the middle yet crunchy on the outside.  It can be formed into dinner rolls or hotdog buns.
