Ah, appetizers. I could eat a plateful of various bites and call it a meal. Oh wait, I HAVE done that. Especially this time of year, it’s easy to fill up and enjoy a whole meal of small bites. The variety is endless, and for someone like me who loves variety (And cheese. I lovelovelove cheese in all forms), it’s a match made in heaven.
Of course, all of those parties (holidays, football, office gatherings) often mean extraneous items that wind up in the fridge. One perfect example is the requisite cheese ball that inevitably either gets brought by a friend, or finds its way into my grocery cart as a “just in case” purchase.
But the cheese ball is also one of those items that somehow ends up being left behind or forgotten before the party is even over. Poor cheese ball.
Well, with my ever-active brain I’m always trying to figure out ways to use up stuff like this instead of tossing it in the trash. In fact, at a recent office party I stole this little idea and used it at a football party we had just 2 days after Thanksgiving. No more food waste with this little trick! Time to intentionally make and serve these Cheese Ball Pretzel Bites at your next get together!
I admit that I’m almost (almost) embarrassed to list this as a full-blown recipe. I mean, cheese and pretzels–not exactly rocket science. But stick with me here (pun intended). What if you could use up perfectly good snack food and make it into something that will be a crowd-pleaser AND disappear on any party food table? I mean, that’s actually pretty cool, right? And what’s a good party food? It’s making people happy about a mouth full of cheese!
Easy, tasty, and a perfect bite. These Cheese Ball Pretzel Bites sound like a brilliant idea to me!
