Has anyone else noticed that pretzel rolls seem to be all the rage lately? It seems like every time I turn the television on, there is a new restaurant advertising their pretzel roll sandwich. Wendy’s has the pretzel bacon cheeseburger. Ruby Tuesday has 4 different burgers served on pretzel rolls. Heck, even Dunkin’ Donuts jumped on the bandwagon with their pretzel roll roast beef sandwich. While all of these options sound tasty, you actually don’t need to go out at all to have delicious pretzel rolls. This Easy Homemade Pretzel Rolls recipe is done in about 2 hours. (Only maybe 20-25 minutes of that is actual hands-on time. The rest of the time is spent allowing the dough to rise or to rest.) I know some people are frightened away by the thought of making homemade bread…but this recipe is called “Easy” for a reason!
Pretzel rolls are the latest and greatest food trend of the moment…and rightfully so! These rolls are incredibly delicious, and you can serve them in so many tasty, wonderful ways.

Or make them a bit smaller and just serve them as dinner rolls. (I lightly toasted one of these rolls last night and ate it along with some leftovers.)
Chances are you already have all of the ingredients necessary for these Easy Homemade Pretzel Rolls. The most unique ingredient (which isn’t even that strange) is onion powder.
