How is awesome is this? Parmesan or Cinnamon Bites

Take a Texas size Rhodes roll that has been thawed.
Roll it out in a four inch rope.
Cut in four sections.
I got tired of this method.
so I simplified even more.
Take your roll, and cut horizontally and vertically.
You have four pieces.
You will need:
as well as:
Once your bites are all cut,
place on a large greased baking sheet.
Let rise until double in size.
Like this . . .
Bring some water to boil in a large pot.
Prepare a Baking sheet with a clean towel and Paper towels on top.
Like this:
Heat your oven to 375 Degrees.
Plop about 10 bites into that boiling water.
Toss gently so that all sides are shocked with the water.
You will boil for about 45 seconds.
Remove from water with a slotted spoon.
Let drain on paper towels.
Don’t worry if a few of them shrivel up funny.
They will recover nicely in the oven!
Remove them carefully from the paper towels.
Place on greased baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Let them bake until they are a nice golden color.
like this . . .
Roll in Parmesan and sprinkle with garlic and Kosher Salt.
 Oh yum!
or do this:
Use that Cinnamon and Sugar mixture.
and this:
You’ll be too busy eating and dipping to watch the big game!
PRETZEL BITES
Texas size Rhodes Frozen roll dough
*as many as you like – each roll makes four bites
coarse salt, parmesan, garlic, cinnamon & sugar
Vanilla glaze (optional)
Take a thawed roll.  Cut it in four equal sections.  Place dough bites on greased sheets. I placed five across and five down on large baking sheets.  Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, and let dough rise until double in size. (about 35-45 minutes) Bring a large pot of water to a gentle boil.  When dough has risen, plop about 10 pieces into the boiling water, tossing gently for about 45 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon, and place bites on paper towels to drain slightly.  Move bites to greased baking sheets, and bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes or until done and golden brown. 
Brush bites with melted butter, sprinkle with Kosher or Sea Salt, garlic and toss in Parmesan cheese.  You can also make Cinnamon and Sugar bites. Make a mixture of Cinnamon and sugar:  About 1 cup sugar and 1 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon, and mix together well. After you butter the pretzel bites, toss in cinnamon and sugar mixture.
You can serve the Parmesan Pretzel bites with a cheddar dip, and the Cinnamon and Sugar Pretzel bites with Vanilla glaze.  So yummy . . . so simple!
VANILLA GLAZE
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract.
Combine sugar, milk, butter and vanilla and mix well. 
CHEDDAR DIP
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon all purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 1/2  to 2 cups of grated Cheddar Cheese.
Melt the butter in a med. size saucepan over medium heat.  Add the flour and stir until blended, and
butter has turned lightly golden brown.  Slowly whisk in the milk and cook until thickened slightly.  Remove from heat and stir in the Cheddar Cheese until smooth and all of the cheese has melted.  Season with salt and pepper.  Shake a few red pepper flakes into sauce for added zing!
