Keto Game Day: Soft Pretzels and Cheese Sauce

Ingredients:

Pretzels
  • 2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (full-fat)
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 eggs
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cups almond flour
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • 1 TBSP sea salt
  • 2 TBSP melted butter
CHEESE Sauce
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices American cheese
  • 2 tbsps cream cheese
  • 1 TBSP heavy whipping cream
  • 1 TBSP melted butter

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400° F. Melt mozzarella cheese and cream cheese together in microwave, stirring occasionally until completely melted. Whisk together 2 eggs, baking powder, vinegar, and buttermilk. Pour egg mixture into cheese mixture and stir a couple times before adding almond flour. Knead the dough with hands until well incorporated. Alternatively, pulse a few times in food processor. The dough should be smooth and fairly elastic (not two-toned) when done. Divide dough into 6 rolls. Lay a piece of parchment on your countertop or cooking surface. Spray parchment with Pam. Roll dough balls against greased parchment using your palm and fingers to make a 12 inch long rope. Bring the rope ends together and cross to make a pretzel shape, gently pressing the ends down on the base of the pretzel loop. Bake pretzels in preheated oven, on a greased baking sheet, for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden. Brush the tops of the pretzels with butter and sprinkle with kosher salt. Serve with mustard or cheese sauce. To make cheese sauce, add cheeses, whipping cream, and butter to a microwave safe dish. Microwave until completely melted, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth and combined.
