Pretzel buns

Decided to try the pretzel bun recipe from the bge site tonight with some burgers...

Took a couple hours end to end...but the family really loved them...doubled the recipe so we had pleanty of extras... made 9 per batch so they were a bit bigger...


Broke the beaters on swmbo's hand mixer...Had to finish kneeding by hand... next time I will drag out the big mixer with the bread hook.

Cooked on a cookie sheet with parchment... took a little longer then advertised but can't argue with the results.

    Those look very good.  What is special about a pretzel bun?  Texture?  Flavor?  I don't  think I've  ever had one,  but I love homemade  breads.

  • Its a little darker bread...pretty firm with a hint of salty taste to it...popular at Wendy's right now...if you have ever had a soft pretzel...kinda the same concept...I like them with just mustard or nacho cheese

  • I tried making Alton Brown's pretzel recipe on the egg recently as sort of a test run for burger buns. The recipes look similar.

    I used the pizza stone on the grid above the platesetter and the bottoms were slightly overdone. I'll have to try the sheet pan next time.
  • That's impressive, looks great

    Awesome!  I'll take mine with some of that jalepeno mustard, some grilled onions, and a couple of these patties ;)


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I wonder if you could turn it into jalapeno buns? That would be a kick.

    Gonna have to give these a try.  There's a burger joint (FlipDaddy's) by the house that my wife loves their Mushroom and swiss burger on a pretzel bun.

    The recipe above calls for unbleached flour.  What makes these pretzel buns instead of regular bread buns?

    the water bath gives the exterior a nice chew, similar to a soft pretzel or a bagel. the wendys knockoff isnt a pretzel bun in my opinion, no chew, just a brown soft crust

    Man, oh, man. Pretzel rolls alone are enough of a reason to visit Bavaria. I've never been able to duplicate the ones I've had in Munich. Will give these a try.

    THESE ARE FANTASTIC! Just like the ones I had in Bavaria. I made one small change: I brushed with an egg white beaten with 1T of water before cutting. Thanks so much for this.

    Pretzel buns are awesome! Nice job! Try a hot dog wrapped in pretzel dough too! Here's some I did on the Egg a few weeks ago. I use Jeff Mauro's (The Sandwich King) pretzel roll recipe, it is similar to Alton Brown's, but has garlic added.
