With my favorite seasonal beers coming out (Oktoberfest/Marzen!) and me needing to eat my emotions because of things continually getting canceled, it seemed totally okay to make some Beer Cheese. Beer Cheese goes on SO many foods that I make! You know what goes the best with it?? More Beer…and Soft Pretzel Bites!
Can I be honest? I wanted to write about something else! I had this big write up in my head about a Cranberry Brat Burger. Look at that thing up there!! Sauerkraut. Mustard BBQ Sauce. Pretzel Bun…guess what? I ALREADY WROTE ABOUT THAT! With Pretzels on my mind though, I went with these beautiful little nugs!
I used to be so nervous (?) about make homemade Pretzels! My thought was that they take a stupid amount of time, the end flavor wasn’t good enough for that effort, and ya know, sometimes, I am lazy. Well ladies and gents, I was way f**kin’ wrong! They’re not hard AT all and they 9 BILLION times better than store bought! Seriously! JUST MAKE SURE YOU USE BAKING SODA, NOT POWDER!
