I’m a pretty big sports fan. By pretty big sports fan, I really mean a die-hard, crazy, live-for-Saturdays-and-Sundays kind of sports fan. And like any true sports fan, I love a good gameday appetizer. I’ve been loving the pretzel craze that has swept the country lately, and the other day I decided the time had come to make some Stuffed Pretzel Bites as a tasty gameday treat. I added some shredded smoked cheddar cheese and then just sealed the little bites up. Ummm…woah! These little bite-size nuggets are totally delicious!! And to make it even better, I whipped up a quick Homemade Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce using Colman’s Mustard. These tasty treats have quickly raced to the top of my all-time favorite appetizer list! And the best part? They’re surprisingly very easy to make.
Several weeks ago, I entered a mystery ingredient contest. The rules were pretty simple. A mystery ingredient would be mailed to me, and I then had to create a recipe using that ingredient. I was admittedly a bit nervous about participating in this one. What if I opened the box and the ingredient was something wild and crazy? What if I had no idea what to do with it? As it turns out, I didn’t have to worry about that. I opened up the mystery box to find…Colman’s Mustard! I immediately knew that pretzels had to be involved somehow. After all, pretzels and mustard just go so darned well together. After a bit of experimenting in the kitchen, I ended up using some of the dry mustard in the actual dough to boost the flavor. And I also whipped up an easy honey mustard dipping sauce using some of the same Colman’s Dry Mustard. These Stuffed Pretzel Bites are not only easy to make, but they’re also super tasty. Pretty much a win-win if you ask me!
