I made some pretzel bites and cheesy dip using a recipe from justgetoffyourbuttandbake.com.
I love how you can use frozen Texas rolls for the dough. What a time saver.
Just a few easy ingredients; frozen buns, melted butter, garlic powder, salt and parmesan cheese. The dip has milk, butter, flour, and shredded cheddar cheese.
Also, instead of parmesan-garlic you can substitute cinnamon and sugar for a sweeter version.
WHAT YOU NEED – Pretzel Bites:
- 1 bag of Rhodes Texas Rolls
- 1/2 stick melted butter
- garlic powder, to taste
- coarse salt, to taste
- parmesan cheese, to taste
WHAT YOU DO:
Remove as many frozen rolls as you like; each roll makes four bites. Thaw until they are just soft enough to cut. Cut each roll in half, then in half again, for a total of four pieces from each roll. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, and let dough rise for 30-45 mins, until doubled in size.
After dough has doubled in size bring a large pot of water to a boil and put 10-15 pieces of dough in the water at a time, stirring gently for 45 seconds. Remove and drain on paper towels, then place on greased baking sheet and bake in preheated 375F oven for 15 mins.
After baking, brush each piece with melted butter and put pieces into a ziplock or paper bag. Cover with garlic powder, salt, and parmesan cheese (all to taste) then shake gently to coat. Pour onto serving dish. Serve with Melted Cheddar Cheese Dip (recipe below).
WHAT YOU NEED – Cheddar Cheese Dip:
- 1 Tbs. butter
- 1 Tbs. flour
- 1 c. milk
- 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
WHAT YOU DO:
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter then whisk in flour and milk until thickened. Add shredded cheese and stir until all of the cheese has melted and the dip is creamy.
