Cheddar Stuffed Pretzel Bites

Cheddar Stuffed Pretzel Bites

Face Rock Cheddar stuffed pretzel bites are delicious and so easy when you use store-bought ready to go pizza dough. We experimented with three different Face Rock cheeses to compare the results: Spicy In Your Face curds, Face 2 Face sheep/cow blend, and our limited edition 2+ year aged Black Butte Porter cheddar collaboration with Deschutes Brewery.

The flavor of each cheese really comes through the signature pretzel profile. You’ll want to make sure you dough balls are sealed completely. Two of my three cheeses oozed but that was a delicious goof to clean up and there was plenty of cheese left inside.

How do the different cheeses react to being baked in their delicious pretzel nest? The beer cheese gets soft and yummy, but won’t have a cheese pull. It reminds me of a classic beer fondue cheese. The curd had the best cheese pull, no surprise since this baby cheddar is super elastic! And Face 2 Face, our creamy cow/sheep cheddar was the ooey gooiest.

If you'd like to try the beer cheddar it's available in limited quantities online or at the Bandon and Coos Bay Village stores only.
