This delightful recipe was made by none other than my son-in-law, Dan.  He was a man hard pressed for a tasty Super Bowl snack.  Usually Olivia makes an array of yummy treats for them to share during the big game, but this year she suffered a broken foot and that has kept her out of the kitchen.  Dan has been awesome keeping the household afloat and he even made these great pretzel bites.  Olivia said for being a super simple recipe they are very good.  When you need a great snack, give these a try.  I think you will enjoy them.

  • 1 can refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 4 c. water
  • 1/4 c. baking soda
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1 c. milk
  • 2 c. Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Quarter each biscuit then roll piece into a ball. Pinch to seal. In a medium saucepan, combine water and baking soda. Bring to boil then reduce to a simmer. Add the rolled balls and cook for 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to baking sheet, making sure the pretzels aren't touching. Brush beaten egg over each pretzel. Sprinkle with salt. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  3. Meanwhile, make cheese sauce. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook for about 1 minute. Stir in milk and bring to a simmer. When the milk begins to thicken, stir cheese, whisking constantly until sauce is smooth. Season to taste with salt, pepper and cayenne.
