‘Homemade soft pretzels made from whole grains finished off with savory herbs & a salty bite of parmesan cheese! One bite and you will be hooked!’
We are a family of suckers when it comes to pretzels. Every theme park, every carnival, every fair, every mall. At least 2 pretzels must be purchased upon the first 20 minutes of arrival. Warm, soft, chewy, fluffy, a touch of salt, a dip of this, a dollop of that. It’s all good when it comes to freshly made pretzels!
Unfortunately, our pretzel consumption usually ends at the locations we happen to be at. In most cases I prefer not to buy the frozen variety (but we have many times) and hadn’t ever attempted homemade ones either. With no outings in sight and a full family craving for pretzels, I decided to give them a try in my own kitchen. I even opted to add some extra flavor parties to this batch instead of making plain/salted ones. Definitely went the savory route with fresh rosemary and grated parmesan cheese.
Why oh why had I waited so long??? Why had I avoided making them myself for so long? Why so intimidated??? All these years of infrequent pretzel consumption! Never again will we our family go to long without fresh & warm pretzels. This recipe was an immediate winner!
Can you even stand it??? Oh those salty bites of parmesan, the freshly chopped herbs, the crispy buttered bits, and chewy insides. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. The family agreed wholeheartedly though!
I mean does it get any better looking? A new homemade staple treat for our home! Cinnamon & Sugar is next on the agenda though because who isn’t an absolute sucker for those??? Until I can come up with a bit ‘healthier’ version for those… these will definitely tame all of the pretzel cravings!
