Soft pretzels are one of the snacks my kids love. When we are at the mall, they always ask if they can get pretzels. They must not be the only ones joining the pretzel craze, because pretzels seem to be everywhere lately. We’ve seen everything from pretzel buns to pretzel pizza crusts! A few years ago, I started making homemade soft pretzel nuggets and we all love them.
Since then, I’ve found an even easier way to make homemade pretzel nuggets using refrigerated dough. By using refrigerated biscuits and fully cooked Casa Di Bertacchi beef meatballs you can easily make Meatball Pretzel Bites for a holiday party appetizer.
These meatball pretzel bites were made with Casa Di Bertacchi meatballs from Sam’s Club. I love shopping at Sam’s Club, especially during the holiday season to buy ingredients and supplies in bulk, so that I have the things I need on hand.
This bag has 6 pounds of meatballs in it so there is plenty to share at holiday parties and potlucks. The recipe also includes baking soda, coarse salt, refrigerated buttermilk biscuits and butter.
It is important that the meatballs reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees, so be sure to prepare the meatballs according to package directions. Since they will only bake for 7-10 minutes, I heated them in the microwave first. Place twenty meatballs in a microwave safe bowl, add two tablespoons of water and heat for 4 1/2 minutes.
Flatten the refrigerator biscuits, pat the meatballs dry with a paper towel, place a meatball in the center and wrap the dough around it pinching the edges closed.
Once all of the meatballs are wrapped in dough, dip them into a mixture of warm water and baking soda.
Place them on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Sprinkle with coarse salt.
Bake at 450 degrees for 7-10 minutes. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with additional coarse salt, if necessary.
Serve immediately, preferably with some warm, melted cheese like this queso blanco.
What an awesome combination…a delicious beef meatball wrapped in a soft pretzel!
This is one appetizer that everyone will love. Your guests will love how they taste and you will love how easy they are to make. If you can’t wait until you have guests to serve these meatball pretzel bites to, surprise your kids and serve these as an after school snack or even for dinner!
