So yesterday I made these.
But I didn’t stop there.
Okay…I guess truth be told I really DID stop there. By the 6th huge ball of dough that I had to roll into a rope and then splice off into pieces, I was kinda tired.
So for the last two balls of dough I decided, what better way to use up the extra dough (and really, save a WHOLE lot of time) than to make two pretzel buns!?
So pretzel buns it was!
These things came out awesome. I was a little worried that the cook time for the pretzel nuggets wouldn’t be quite right for the buns and I would end up with a gooey inside, but they cooked through perfectly!
I went to bed last night knowing EXACTLY what I was going to have for lunch.
Was there any question?
You don’t have something like this sitting around and NOT use it. You just don’t.
Frankly I’m surprised I didn’t slap a burger in between the two slices and call it dinner last night.
Or just bite into the thing with nothing inside and call it a “snack” between now and then.
Ultimately though I’m glad I held out cause this thing was awesome.
In between the pretzel bun went:
- Low sodium deli turkey
- Low sodium deli ham
- 1/4 avocado (mashed)
- Mixed greens
I have one bun left…suggestions for other ways to use it up!? I’m thinking peanut butter and nutella may need to be involved…
