Sometimes you just have to snack. Maybe you have friends over and don’t want to make a big meal. It’s a busy day, and you don’t have time to stop. Or possibly you’re at an event that has snacks at the ready.
Snacking is pretty common this time of year with my bunch. Don’t get me wrong, I make sure we eat well-rounded meals, but sometimes you get hungry in between. Right? So why not snack a little to get you through.
For Pretzel Bites, you will need…
1 can jumbo biscuits
4 c water
1/4 c baking soda
1 egg, whisked
The best thing about pretzels is you can make them savory or sweet. If you don’t want standard salted bites, you can always swap the salt for some sugar and cinnamon. You can also zest it up with everything from spicy mustard to yummy queso.
Start by cutting your biscuits in half and rolling them into long strips. Then cut the dough into bite-size pieces about an inch in size. Then roll them into small balls. While you are working with the dough, start boiling water on the stove. Also, preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Once all of the dough is cut, rolled and the water is boiling, sprinkle the baking soda into the water. Then drop some of the dough bites into the water and boil for 45 seconds. This will take a few batches to get through all of them. Set the cooked dough on paper towels to remove the excess water.
Move the bites to a lined baking sheet and brush with the whisked egg. Then sprinkle with salt.
Bake the pretzels for about 10 to 12 minutes or until the are golden. Then simply serve them with your favorite dipping sauce.
Salty and chewy, these bite-size snacks are great for on the go and store easily in an airtight container at room temperature. What’s your favorite go-to snack? I’d love to know. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
