Get started!


Pretzel Bites

12 unbaked frozen dinner rolls

6 cups water

2 tablespoons baking soda

1 teaspoon sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg, beaten

Coarse sea salt

Cheese Sauce

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

10 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American, chopped

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place dinner rolls onto sheet; cover lightly with plastic food wrap. Let rise at room temperature 1 1/2-2 hours or until completely thawed and rolls feel soft.

  2. STEP 2

    Cut each roll into quarters. 

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 425°F. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Place water into large saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Carefully add baking soda and sugar. (Water will bubble up, then return to a gentle boil.) Drop half of dough pieces into gently boiling water; cook, stirring lightly, about 1 minute or until surface of dough has lightly bubbled appearance. Remove with slotted spoon; place onto prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough pieces.

  5. STEP 5

    Brush each dough bite with beaten egg; sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

  6. STEP 6

    Meanwhile, melt butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat until sizzling. Add garlic; continue cooking 1 minute or until fragrant. Add flour; stir to combine. Continue cooking 1-2 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk until well combined. Add Deli American, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted and sauce is slightly thickened. Serve with warm pretzel bites.
