I’ve been making a lot of baked pretzels lately. I like to bake them and then put them in the freezer so I don’t sit there and eat the whole batch. To warm them up, I’ll just put them in the microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. I also like to use Alton Brown’s recipe for homemade pretzels. Then, I find other ways to flavor them up. One time I used a package of ranch seasoning mix. Those were ok, but I like these better. These little pretzel bites would be fun to make for a game party. We never have those at our house and I wish that we did. Although, I’m not sure if there’s people out there that have NHL parties at their homes? I’m not a football fan at all.
To make these, use your favorite pretzel dough recipe. Take the dough and divide it into 4 separate balls. Roll them out length wise. Place some cut up pieces of ham, pepperoni, or whatever you like in the center of the dough. Then some cheese. Fold the pretzel dough over so that it covers the ham and cheese and crimp the pretzel dough shut. Cut them into equal size pieces and place them on a baking sheet. Brush them with egg wash and sprinkle on some kosher salt. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the crust turns golden brown.
