These hummus stuffed pretzel bites use Sabra pizza hummus for a fun football (or anytime!) snack. A salty soft pretzel bite gives way to hummus filled center!
The first time I made pretzels was one of the most satisfying culinary feats of my life. That sounds ridiculous, they’re pretzels not foie gras but seriously, I was like giddy with excitement. I get that way with pretty much anything that involves a successful use of yeast but the two step, boil and bake thing pretzels got going on makes it that much better.
My thoughts on pretzels are pretty simple: life’s too short to waste any time eating hard pretzels when soft pretzels exist. The end.
I don’t think I’ve ever been tempted by the bowl of hard pretzels at a party. I mean for real, the communion wafer at church tastes better than those things. Half the time they’re stale and the other half they’re still meh.
Chips win hands down at the “throw it in a bowl and mindlessly eat at a party” food, not pretzels.
Soft pretzels, now that’s a completely different story.
How can one pass up a soft salted doughy pretzel from the guy on the street corner in NYC to the Auntie Anne’s in the mall with that intoxicating cinnamon pretzel smell wafting around? If you can, I deem you not human.
So with my beloved soft pretzels in mind, these pizza hummus stuffed pretzel bites came to be.
I hear it’s football season now (you all know how I feel about this ridiculous sport. If not, see this edamame dip post) and the only thing that means to me is TAILGATING FOOD, pretty much the only good thing to come of this pig skin throwing, man tackling spectacle that takes over all televisions (except mine) every Sunday.
Since pizza is pretty much a staple football food, I figured why not use Sabra’s pizza hummus to stuff inside a pretzel bite?
It’s like a two for one of tailgating goodness. A salty browned outside opens up to a pizza hummus stuffed doughy inside only made better by a nice big dunk in some more hummus before eating.
Never thought I’d say this, but heck yeah, football!
