I think one of the best parts of vacation, in my opinion, is getting to try new restaurants and different foods.  We don’t go out to eat a lot at home, so it is a special treat when we are traveling.  Especially when you go to a new area, that is known for good food.  I hope to share a post on Thursday Things about the food we had on our trip to California, but in the meantime I made a homemade version of something that we had on our trip!

On our last night in California we were in Disney Land.  We went to a German style restaurant in the park for dinner.  I had a flatbread pizza, but my husband had a chicken sausage sandwich.  It was served on a pretzel roll and topped with sauerkraut.  We aren’t big fans of sauerkraut, so back at home I topped it with sauteed peppers and onions instead.   I like using chicken sausage in recipes.  They now have so many great varieties available, that you really can mix this up just about any way you can think of.  I used an Italian sausage version this time.

I have made pretzel rolls before.  They always go over really well here.  My husband makes the comment every time that we really need to have them more often.  I am honestly not sure why we don’t.  There is no kneading involved, so they are pretty easy to make.  Just mix, shape, boil, and bake.  Obviously this time I shaped more like a hot dog bun instead of a roll, but no matter what way you shape them, the recipe and the method are exactly the same.  Trust me, these are a great replacement for hamburger buns too.
