Ham & Cheese Pretzel Bites

I can’t even remember what I made these for! That’s how lame I am at getting posts up right when I do something.  Spectacular of me, isn’t it??  I’m thinking these were for New Year’s Eve, so we’ll just go with that.  Either way, they were really good and I plan on making them again soon!
I found the recipe on Pennies on a Platter and her pictures are fabulous!
I pretty  much followed her recipe, except I added about twice as much ham and cheese.  I also skipped the boiling step completely.  I’m not saying everybody should… maybe that’s why hers look so much better.  But I tried 2 in the boiling water and it was a complete disaster, so I skipped it, went straight to baking and they still came out really great!
Of course, when that step was a total flop, I panicked and quick pulled some frozen appetizers out of the freezer that my sister had left after Christmas Eve.  I threw them in the oven too since I was running out of time and both things ended up coming out at the same time!  The pretzel bites turned out, so I now had double the food to take with me to our friends’ house!
 I’m not really known for moderation.
But the pretzel bites were the star!!


Hi, I'm Natalie and I like to move slowly (like a turtle, if you will)! I daydream about minivans, painting walls and eating fudge with a spoon. Welcome to my little computer home where I share my family's adventures as we live life from the slow lane!

  1. I had laugh at your “I’m not really known for moderation” statement. That is so me, when it’s my turn to host Bunco or something of the sort you can always count on me to have way too much. My family usually fusses at me and tells me to quit going overboard. I can’t help it though.

    The ham and cheese bites look yummy, I might have to make them for my next gathering. I love your blog too!

  2. Ummm.Yum! Like really Yum! And I actually think my kiddos will eat this…. of course dipped in a crazy amount of cheese. But I would be doing the same thing! Yum! (just one more yum if you didn’t already know that I think this looks delish) 😉

  3. Definately looks yummy! thanks for posting this, I needed some food inspiration today.

  4. Haha I’m not known for moderation either. Much better to have too many.

    I’m always looking for good finger food recipes. I think I would have skipped the boiling step too. Sounds a bit scary and messy.

    These ham and cheese pretzel bites look delicious even though you skipped a step. I would like to try it with chicken or turkey instead of ham, thank you for sharing this recipe post.
