One of the best things about September is the celebration of Oktoberfest. Because I am always on the lookout for yummy recipes for any party or celebration, especially those that are ridiculously easy, I was super excited to find this one in Good Housekeeping Magazine. Seriously, it only involves about five ingredients, and even I can handle that.

Here’s how to make your own Oktoberfest pretzel bites:

  • Start with pre-made pizza dough (Pillsbury makes some in the refrigerated section of your grocery). Roll dough into cherry-size balls.
  • Drop these dough pieces into a small pot holding 5 cups of boiling water and 1/3 cup of baking soda.
  • Cook for about one minute or until they appear slightly puffed, and then using a slotted spoon, pull them out and rest them on a paper towel.
  • Transfer the pretzel bites to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Brush the dough with 1 beaten egg and sprinkle each piece with coarse sea┬ásalt.
  • Bake the pretzel bites for 12-15 minutes until they appear golden.
  • Serve with your favorite mustard or cheese dip!

** Want a sweet option? Leave off the salt and coat the dough with cinnamon sugar before baking.
