Have you ever had a stuffed pretzel? I hadn’t before now. But I really don’t know why… they are incredibly delicious and fun to make! Soft pretzels are not new to this blog – see this recipe.
But guys? Stuffing the dough before twisting it into pretzel shapes is the extra step I never knew I needed. There’s definitely a ton of creative filling ideas awaiting, not to mention a whole other list of sweet versions I want to try. But for today, we are starting with cheeseburger-stuffed pretzels.
So, how do they taste?
Think of these like a pizza pocket. Except instead of pepperoni, pizza sauce and cheese inside, there’s a creamy, cheeseburger-style vegan beef mixture. The pretzels are quickly boiled in baking soda water (the key to that classic pretzel look and taste) before being baked to golden perfection and sprinkled with coarse salt and sesame seeds.
The finishing touch is a vegan “Big Mac” inspired sauce. Its crazy delicious and perfect for dipping! I know with all the lockdowns happening, you might be looking for some fun recipes to try. Definitely try this one!
