Soft Pretzels with Cheese Sauce. Homemade easy appetizer recipe. Using refrigerated biscuit dough and dipped in an yummy cheese sauce.
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
Make the pretzels:
Quarter each biscuit, then roll each piece into a slices (about 1 inch in length). Using a knife, carve an X into each slice. In a medium saucepan, combine water and baking soda. Bring to boil then reduce to a simmer. Add slices and cook for 30 seconds. (The dough will float to top.) Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to baking sheet, making sure the pretzels aren’t touching. Brush beaten egg over each pretzel, then sprinkle with coarse salt.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Then make cheese sauce:
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook for 1 minute. Stir in milk and bring to a simmer. When milk begins to thicken, stir in cheese, whisking constantly until sauce is smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with the pretzels.
