Just trying stopping your guests from inhaling these warm, chewy bites, paired with a delectable cheese sauce seasoned with spicy mustard. We love Mustard Girl mustards!

  • 5 Cups Water
  • 1/2 Cup Baking Soda
  • 16 Ounces Pizza Dough (Room Temperature)
  • 3 Tablespoons Unbleached Flour
  • 1 Large Egg (Beaten)
  • 2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 8 Ounces Extra-Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 6 Ounces Evaporated Milk
  • 6 Ounces Brown or Amber Ale
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard (I Use Mustard Girl Dijon)
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Line large-size baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Place water in large-size pot and stir in baking soda. Heat to a boil on high.
  4. With lightly floured hands, roll pizza dough into 1-inch balls. Gently add the dough balls to the boiling water. Cook 1 minute, stirring gently. With slotted spoon remove dough balls, shaking off excess liquid. Place on prepared baking sheet, spacing 1/2 inch apart.
  5. Brush dough balls with egg. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
  6. Place in oven 12 to 15 minutes until deep golden brown.
  7. While pretzels baking, coarsely grate cheese into medium-size bowl. Toss with cornstarch until well coated.
  8. In medium-size saucepan whisk together milk, beer, and mustard. Turn heat to medium-high until hot and slightly steaming, but not boiling. Stir often. Whisk in cheese by handfuls until melted and smooth.
  9. Serve cheese sauce with warm pretzel minis.
