Rounded/stripped bolts - tips please.......

So I stupidly rounded a couple of my inner chainring fixing bolts trying to tighten them up to correct torque. I rushed the job and did it on the floor instead of a workstand as I should have to get the right angle.


Anyway I got myself some replacement bolts as I cant bare to look at what I have done. I am actually disgusted with myself. I have not tried yet but any home tips for getting them out without using a extractor kit or LBS? I feel like there is a one shot chance of getting them out before they are totally rounded
