Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1/4 cup water, for steaming
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 6 yellow cheddar cheese sticks, frozen
  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated pizza dough, cut lengthwise in 6 thin strips
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning
  • Pretzel salt, as desired
  • Step 1

    Pour 1/4 cup water into the pot. Spray the Cook & Crisp Basket with cooking spray and place in the pot.

  • Step 2

    Wrap each frozen cheese stick with 1 strip of dough. Carefully seal the top and bottom with your fingers.

  • Step 3

    In a small bowl, whisk the egg with 1 teaspoon water. Brush the dough-wrapped cheese sticks with the egg wash, then sprinkle evenly with the ranch seasoning. Brush the dough-wrapped cheese sticks again with the egg wash, then sprinkle with the pretzel salt as desired.

  • Step 4

    Place two of the dough-wrapped cheese sticks in the basket spaced as far apart as possible so they do not touch.

  • Step 5

    Close the lid and move the slider to STEAMCRISP. Select STEAM & CRISP, set temperature to 375°F, and set time to 7 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for approx. 5 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, remove the pretzel twists, set aside, and cover to keep warm. Repeat all steps with the remaining ingredients.
