We started making these keto stuffed pretzel balls as pretzel bites but when the pretzel bites came out sized like pretzel baseballs, we decided to make a jalapeño, bacon, cheese sauce and stuff them with it! Though it may be a little bit of a bastard, these keto stuffed pretzel "cream puffs" are gooey balls of bacon cheesy awesomeness!

  • In a bowl fit for a stand mixer, combine your Ketonia bread mix, water, yeast, and honey. Fit with a dough hook and mix on medium high for 5 minutes. Let proof for 45 minutes while you prepare your stuffing.
  • Prepare your stuffing; dice your jalapeño, shred your cheddar, and dice and cook your bacon. In a large bowl, combine cheese, bacon, jalapeño, and mayonnaise. With a sturdy spoon, chop and mix ingredients together.
  • Divide your pretzel dough into 12 equal portions. This will be roughly 50g for each pretzel ball. One at a time, flatten out each dough ball and scoop 1 tbsp of stuffing into the middle, this will also help create a hollow center. Pinch the seams closed around the stuffing and roll into a nice ball. Repeat for all 12. You will have leftover stuffing, save it! Let dough balls rest, covered, for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 400*. While your dough balls rest, boil a large pot of water. Once your water is boiled, mix in 1 tsp of barley malt and drop in a few pretzel puffs in the water at a time and boil for 10 seconds on each side. Remove from water and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush tops of pretzel puffs with egg wash and sprinkle with salt.
  • Bake pretzel puffs for 15 minutes. While they're baking, combine heavy cream and the rest of the cheese stuffing in a small pot. Warm on medium heat and stir until smooth. Pour the jalapeño, bacon, cheese sauce into a piping bag and fill each pretzel puff OR just dip the pretzel puffs into a bowl of the warm cheesy sauce.
