Loaded Pretzel Bombs

Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Course Appetizer
Servings 8


  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped chives
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 can refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1/3 cup baking soda
  • Egg wash


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cook the bacon in a medium skillet until it’s crispy. Once done, drain it on paper towels and then chop it up.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese, shredded Cheddar cheese, chopped bacon, and chives until everything is well combined. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Flatten each round of biscuit dough until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture onto each round of dough, then bring the edges of the dough together and pinch them to seal.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine the baking soda with 3 cups of warm water, whisking until the baking soda is dissolved. Dip each pretzel bomb into the solution and gently toss until they’re evenly coated.
  • Place the coated bombs on the prepared baking sheet with the seam side facing down. Using a knife, score an “X” onto the top of each bomb, then brush them with the egg wash and sprinkle them with salt.
  • Bake the pretzel bombs in the preheated oven until they’re deeply golden brown, which should take about 15 minutes. Serve them warm and watch them disappear!
