easy pretzel poppers


i saw this recipe here.. and seeing how easy it was i knew i had to make them.. i am a pretzel junky.. i absolutely love the pretzels at the mall.. i love to dip them in spicy cheese or mustard.. when going to the mall during my lunch hour i actually park by the entrance where the pretzel stand is so i can grab one for my ride back to work.. when i saw how easy they were to make i was so excited.. be warned they are addicting.. you can't just have one.. i will most definitely be making these again.. i might even experiment with them.. i'll keep ya posted with what i come up with..i am thinking maybe stuffing them with cheese and jalapenos.. whatcha think??


pretzel poppers

prep time: 1 hour
cooking time: 5-7 minutes
servings: 24 poppers

ingredients:

6 texas rhodes rolls, defrosted and cut into fourths
1/2 cup warm water
2 tblsp. baking soda
course sea salt
3 tblsp. butter, melted

egg wash:
1 egg, beaten
1 tblsp. water

allow your rolls to defrost.. cut them into fourths and place on a lined baking sheet.. cover and allow to rise.. they should get double their size.. heat your oven to 450 degrees {f}.. once they have risen take your water and baking soda in a microwave safe dish and zap for 1 minute.. using a slotted spoon dip each popper into the water/baking soda mixture.. and place back on your baking sheet.. once they have all been dipped then brush each one with your egg wash {whisk egg and water together} then sprinkle each popper with course sea salt.. bake for 5-7 minutes.. {check after 5 minutes}.. remove from oven and brush each one with melted butter.. you can at this point roll them in paremesan cheese or cinnamon and sugar.. i left mine alone and dipped them into sweet n spicy mustard.. yummy... they are a great little appetizer or afternoon snack..

enjoy and get cook'n!!
