Rhodes Dinner Rolls
Take out as many dinner rolls as you need. Each roll will make 2 pretzel bites. Cut each roll in half and roll it into a ball. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet (or one sprayed with a non-stick spray) and cover with a damp towel. Allow the rolls to rise for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Place 5 or 6 rolls at a time into the boiling water and leave them there until they puff up; about 30 seconds. Transfer back to the baking sheet. Continue with the rest of the rolls. Bake for about 18 minutes.
If you are making asiago or salted pretzel bites sprinkle with cheese or salt about 5 minutes before they are done. If you are making cinnamon sugar pretzel bites dip them in melted butter immediately after removing from the oven. Then roll them in cinnamon sugar. We served our pretzel bites with zesty nacho cheese sauce.
