Favorite Ingredient Friday


Mini Soft Pretzels and Dip




1. 1 can (11 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated breadsticks
2. 1 egg, beaten
3. Kosher (coarse) salt, if desired
4. 1 jar (5 oz) pasteurized process cheese spread with bacon
5. 2 tablespoons milk

1 . Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough; separate into 12 breadsticks. Cut each in half lengthwise. Roll each breadstick lightly to form 10-inch-long rope.
2 . To shape each pretzel, shape rope into a circle, overlapping dough about 2 inches from each end, leaving ends free. Take 1 end in each hand; twist once at point where dough overlaps. Lift ends over opposite side of circle. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush each with beaten egg; sprinkle with salt.
3 . Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, mix cheese spread and milk. Microwave on High 1 minute, stirring once halfway through cooking, until melted and hot.
4 . Remove pretzels from cookie sheet. Serve warm pretzels with warm cheese dip.

I love pretzels too. I'm making these! Only, instead of using the salt, I think I'm going to be bad and coat mine with melted butter and Parmesan cheese! :)

Thanks for sharing this recipe! And thanks for taking the time to participate in my Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange. I do appreciate it!

what a great idea! I love those big pretzels but so many times when I buy them (already made) they are so greasy! These dont sound like they would be greasy at all! Thanks Michelle!
