    Im not even exaggerating when I say I’ve been craving soft pretzels and cheese for MONTHS!!!!! This triggers emotions in me I won’t admit. But I think I did just shed a tear. You’re right, pretzels, beer, cheddar, they’re pretty much a perfect combo!

    I need this in my life in a serious way!! I’ve been wanting to try bread bowls forever, but I’d never even considered pretzel bowls. Genius!!!

    I’m being tortured and taunted by bread bowls for soup!!! I need to make some. I’ve wanted to for ages but never thought of how easy it might actually be.

    Totally pinned this….making it as soon as I can. One of my favorite restaurants has a beer cheese soup and it’s amazing…this reminds me of it. Yum!

    Pretzel rolls are basically…my most favorite carb on this earth. And cheese is pretty much a love also. This is awesome!

    This is brilliant! You have combined like 5 of my favorite things into one delicious looking meal. Cheese, pretzels, beer, soup, bread bowls! This is definitely happening.

    My husband made this for dinner tonight and it was AMAZING! Though I get partial credit because I read your blog and passed along the recipe to him ;)

      Yay, glad to hear it! And can I say that I’m jealous that your husband can actually cook something that isn’t pancakes or a piece of meat? :P Thanks for coming back to let me know!

    I made this last night for a house-warming party and it was DELICIOUS!! Everyone loved it. Next time I make it I will add cubes of steamed potatoes to make baked potato soup! I can’t wait to do that. Thank so much for the amazing recipe.

    Oh.my.goodness.! I made this for dinner tonight (complete with the pretzel bowls, of course) and it was fantastic! Between the soup, the pretzel bowl, and the crispy bacon, oh my! It’s all kinds of wonderful! The pretzel bowls turned out perfectly too! I will definitely be making this again. I’m looking forward to having some of the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I tried making the bread bowls tonight but my didn’t turn out nearly as pretty as yours did. Mine looked fine until I put them in the boiing water. At that point they deflated a little and flattened out considerably. Any suggestions on what might have gone wrong or how I can prevent this?

      My pretzels always deflate a bit when I put them in the boiling water. I tried looking up why but everything just said to “be really careful” when transferring the pretzels to the water. :( I’m sorry they didn’t work out for you and wish I could help more!

      Instead boiling my pretzels, I brush them with the soda wash and straight into the oven, so they don’t deflate.

    …this recipe is awesome…

    but I have to point out a miss spell!

    “The soup. Oh my goodness, the soup. Is there anything better than a cheese soap?! ”

    Cheese SOAP??? lol!

    just sayin!
