Pilsbury's got nothing on these rolls.

Tucson, Arizona’s Miraval Resort is a rare haven where natural beauty and excellent cuisine meet. While we’re crazy about their lobster and arugula salad (we featured the recipe here), sometimes a perfect, classic pretzel roll is all you can ask for. Especially when they’re as easy to make as this one. Ready to learn the secret weapon of highly skilled pretzel roll bakers?

Says executive chef Justin Macy:

“I use a baking soda-water solution to give this bread a nice dark brown color, a characteristic of most pretzels. Using a spray bottle helps to coat the dough well without having to go through the messy, time-consuming process of boiling the dough in the solution prior to baking. The dough has a sweet flavor that is offset by the salty exterior. As the name suggests, I make the dough into rolls as opposed to a pretzel shape, making this bread very quick and easy to make.”

Remember, your loved ones will consume as many pretzel slider sandwiches as you can make. So make plenty.
