Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 smoked fully cooked bratwurst, cut in 1/4-inch thick half-moons (about 9 oz)
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, cubed and softened
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
  • 1/4 cup lager style beer
  • 1 tablespoon sliced green onion

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F.
  • 2
    Unroll dough, and separate into 4 rectangles. Press seams together to seal. Cut each rectangle into 4 long strips about 1x6 inches. Lightly roll each strip to form a rope, and twist each piece into a knot. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. In small cup, mix water and baking soda, stirring until dissolved. Brush each dough knot with water mixture; sprinkle with coarse salt. Discard remaining water mixture. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

    Meanwhile, in 8-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add bratwurst; cook 4 to 5 minutes or until heated through. Carefully stir in cream cheese, Cheddar cheese and beer; pan will be full. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until cheeses are completely melted. Remove from heat; top with green onions, and serve with pretzel bites.
