I’m not going to lie. When Dan and I thought of making these pretzel bites with a smooth cheese sauce, I thought that the process would be very daunting. Baking anything makes me uneasy, and making something that seems complex, gets me so afraid to try to recreate it. I am notoriously horrible at baking and rarely have any success when it comes to measuring anything that goes into the oven. Thankfully, when we made these incredible and tasty pretzel bites, they turned out to be amazingly easy! With a gooey and flavorful cheese sauce, these delicious pretzel bites will have you and your guests popping them over and over!
These pretzel bites were made for our weekly football posts. Each week, we choose two football teams and create a recipe that represents them. When we set out to make dishes for this Thursday night’s game, we became a bit uncertain about what to make. This week, we are putting recipes that represent the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks, head to head. These fantastic pretzel bites were made to highlight the Seahawks.
When we looked into what to make for the Seahawks, I seriously came to a dead end. After searching and searching, I had no clue what to make. About 10 years ago, my family and I visited Seattle. At the time, I did not eat seafood and was told by my family that they had the very best crab cakes at a local restaurants. Now that I love seafood, I am pretty disappointed in my younger self that I refused to try this delectable crab cake. Even though I wanted to recreate these, I did not know if I could do them justice. Therefore, I went searching some more and found something exciting! Apparently, people in Seattle take pretzels very seriously.
After I realized that pretzels are a delicious treat in Seattle, I knew that our next recipe had to highlight this food. I can easily imagine Seahawks fans dipping these incredible pretzel bites in a gooey cheese sauce and rooting on their team. In just a few simple steps, these bites were ready to be devoured and thoroughly enjoyed. If you are looking for a recipe to watch in front of the game, look no further! You will be addicted to these flavorful and cheesy bites! If you try these fun bites, let us know what you think!
