Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



When I made GallyWench's Pretzel Rolls, I made some of them larger so I could make a couple of rolls to make this sandwich. The rolls were perfect for this recipe. We loved these with sausage and ground beef as sandwiches! Don't wait for the holidays, make them now!
