They look incredible. They smell incredible. They taste incredible. They ARE incredible.
Oh my gosh. You guys.
I stuffed buffalo chicken dip into a soft pretzel. Yes, I did.
It just seemed so right and so natural. I mean, what could be better than pretzels, cheddar cheese and buffalo chicken? Total fall comfort. All you need is a cold beer and your favorite team on the TV.
I've become a tad obsessed with soft pretzels and stuffing them with delicious things. So it was only a matter of time before I stuffed one with one of my favorite dips, and I really cannot think of a better time of year for these pretzels. The weather is turning cooler and the football season is in full gear. Which means it’s time to cozy up to some of our favorite foods. You know??
Trust me, once you make these you'll be happy you did. Definite crowd pleasers!
Okay, start by getting all your ingredients together.
In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and buffalo sauce. Stir in the shredded chicken and green onions.
Unroll the pizza dough onto a counter.
Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into eight strips.
Now take a rolling pin and, working with one strip at a time, roll each strip out into a rectangle about 11 x 3 inches.
Spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the buffalo chicken filling along the length of each piece.
Starting with the opposite long side, roll the dough up into a log, enclosing the filling inside. Pinch the seams together and then very gently roll the dough with your hands to form an even cylinder and fully enclose the filling.
Take the two ends of each filled cylinder and form a circle, overlapping the ends by a couple of inches on either side, then twist the ends and lay over the opposite side to form a pretzel shape. Press to seal.
Place the pretzel on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling, then bake 'em up.
Meanwhile, make the dip. In a bowl mix together the mayo, buttermilk, Greek yogurt, lemon juice and Worcestershire. Stir in the blue cheese and season with salt and pepper.
Grab the pretzels from the oven and serve them hot alongside the blue cheese dip. Oh, and maybe some extra buffalo sauce too.
Warm, cheesy, buffalo chicken goodness right there.
