Soft and chewy pretzel bread stuffed with gooey melted cheese? YES!!! Who doesn’t love cheese?! They say anything made with cheese is better. We are a cheese eating family, despite the fact that my husband is lactose intolerant.  This is a great snack, appetizer, or side dish that you will be able to whip up in no time at all.

I am sorry to say that the sauce was an afterthought. but they didn’t make it into the photo opp. The sauce really was a great addition. The bread alone tastes just lovely, but with the sauce, it is out of the park delicious.

We stick with a basic long loaf since it is easy to slice and portion for sharing.  With kids in the house, you find portion sizes being equal to be pretty important.

Slide your pretzel bread onto a baking sheet and sprinkle with spices.  I recommend using a silicone baking mat if you have on hand to help prevent it from sticking or getting too brown on the bottom.

  1. I saw your tweet for this post and had to check it out. The chili lime sauce is what grabbed me because I recently posted my favorite recipe for grilled corn with chili lime butter. The pretzel bread really got me, though. I just had to pin this recipe for later. I know my family will love it.
