We were watching yet another commercial about food being served in pretzel buns, and my sweetie asked me why we couldn't find them in a store.
Determined to find a way to make these, and found 2 recipes.
The one online was from www.thedailymeal.com.
They are quite tasty. I made these for burgers tonight and can see a lot of ideas like swiss, mushroom and bacon burgers.

How to Make Pretzel Buns

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl of a stand mixer with a dough hook attachement, add 1 cup 110° water, sugar and 1 teaspoon salt. Mix and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes or until foamy.
  2. Mix the flour and salt, add to yeast mixture, and stir with dough hook for 8 minutes, or until dough is elastic and smooth.
  3. Form the dough in a ball, grease out side liberally with vegetable oil, cover with a damp towel and let rest on cojnter until double in size, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Knead the dough, then turn out on a floured surface and continue to knead until the dough is smooth and springs back when poked with your finger, about 1 minute.
  5. Divide the dough into either 6 or 4 portions, I used 6 portions, cover again with towel, and let rise for another 20 to 25 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  6. While dough is rising, bring water to a boil, then add the baking soda.
    Preheat oven to 425°
    Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with non stick spray.
  7. Drop rolls in 2 at a time and poach for 2 minutes, and then remove to drain on a wire rack.
  8. Mix the egg white and teaspoon of water together and brush over the top of the rolls.
    Take a sharp knife and make an X shape in the middle.
  9. Sprinkle with desired amount of salt.
    I wished I had really coarse salt for this, it would have been better, but they still good with just Kosher salt.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes, turning half way until golden brown.
