Cheesy Pretzel Rolls

These don't taste so much like a pretzel as they do a cheesy, addicting, roll in a pretzel shape. I will just say that the night I made these, we finished them off so quickly it's a little embarrassing.

Recipe from

  • 1 C warm water 
  • 1 package active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 2 3/4 C flour, plus more for dusting the work surface
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 1/2 C sharp cheddar cheese, grated

  1. Place the warm water in a bowl and sprinkle the yeast on top. Set aside to rest until the mixture bubbles, about 5 minutes.
  2. Place the flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add in the yeast mixture and mix with a dough hook until the dough is elastic and smooth, about 8 minutes (I didn't let mine mix that long, just a few minutes).
  3. Cover and let rest in a warm place until the dough doubles in size, about 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Once the dough has risen, mix in cheese. Divide the dough into 16 pieces and form into long ropes. Form into a pretzel shape and tuck ends underneath. Allow to rise for about 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 and bake for 12 - 14 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm.
