Cheese Stuffed Soft Pretzels
These Cheese Stuffed Soft Pretzels are a little bit crispy on the outside and are oh so soft on the inside with a surprise; melted cheese! Whether you’re enjoying them with a beer for Oktoberfest or you just want something to dip into your favorite soup. These from scratch pretzels are the perfect companion and you will not believe how easy these are to make!
Just like a stuffed pizza crust, these pretzels are cheesy and so good. They start out with an easy bread dough, then it’s just a simple matter of rolling and shaping them. I’m going to show you, with a step-by-step video: how to make your own soft pretzels. And best of all, they’re filled with cheese… what’s not to love?!
Although Oktoberfest is officially over (in Germany, at least) most of us in America choose to celebrate this storied festival during the entire month of October, and why not? Drinking German beer and enjoying the cuisine that surrounds this famous festival is certainly something that we can all take part in, leading up to that Spooktacular holiday known as Halloween.
Speaking of October, and if you happen to be looking for Halloween recipes, I have a fun collection right here > Halloween recipes.
Did I mention dunking them in soup? I sure did and I served these pretzels with my Creamy German Beer Cheese Soup which was a truly fabulous pairing. I’ll have that recipe for you next week, so stay tuned.
Not a big soup fan? No worries. Here’s a delicious cheese dip that is a Copycat Chipotle Queso Blanco that would be a perfect warm bath for the pretzels and very enjoyable to eat as you’re watching your favorite team on game day. (P.S. Don’t forget the cold beer).
Now that I’ve given you my serving suggestions, you’re probably wondering what do the Germans actually serve with their pretzels? (or, as they say in Germany; brezel). They serve beer, of course! Along with a bratwurst or two, simple butter or different sauces ranging from honey mustard to cheese.
If you’re looking for an easy bratwurst recipe to go with these pretzels, I like to cook mine in the slow cooker and serve with onions and peppers. Grab that recipe here > Slow Cooker Bratwurst.
