Sunday Brunch: Pretzel Rolls

These pretzel rolls are basically soft pretzels that have not been given the signature pretzel twist. Split them and fill them with thick-sliced bacon and some nice grainy mustard and you've got a hearty, filling brunch. Take care when picking out a salt to top your rolls with: a nice flaky salt can really elevate these pretzel rolls.

The secret to making these rolls taste especially pretzel-like is to boil them. Use a large pot, but do not fill it up all the way because, if you do, the vigorous boiling caused by adding the baking soda could overflow your pot.
