This title does not refer to my tush in 90 degree weather (as we have been having the last few days), nor any reference to the size of it thanks to my craving for carbs (increased as of late due to my diligence at the gym…it’s a vicious cycle.)
What I am referring to are these new Pretzel Buns at Costco. Does yours carry them? They are like pretzels, but in bun form, or is it rolls? Anyway, this is what they look like. We’ve just been eating them warmed up in the microwave. But after coming home from the gym today (see what I mean), I had this brilliant idea!
Toasted Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Buns.
Cut the rolls into fourths. I used four rolls because that’s what was left. Place them on a cookie sheet. Melt half a stick of butter in a microwave safe dish. Then add a couple of dashes of cinnamon into the melted butter, add a couple of spoonful's of sugar (to your liking), stir it all together. Then pour butter mixture over the cookie sheet. Roll the rolls around in the butter mixture. Use you hands. Get all that good stuff on them. Then place the cookie sheet in an oven set to broil. My temp was 500 degrees. I put it on the second down rack. Peek on them every 30 seconds or so to see how warm and toasty they are getting. Turn a few over to get an even toastiness. Your kitchen will be smelling so good at this point.
Once they look slightly brown and toasted, pull them out to cool off slightly. Then enjoy the warm, toasty, buttery, cinnamony, sugary, pretzely carb comfort tastiness :)
