This seasoned pretzels recipe is super simple and super delicious. Homemade salty snacks are our constant obsession. This recipe was sent to us so we had to try it and it did NOT disappoint! We recommend doubling the recipe because they did not last long! There’s something about salty and crunchy snacks that we can’t get enough of and these seasoned pretzels check all of the boxes. The hint of dill mixed with the ranch seasoning create a fantastic combo with the broken pretzel pieces. We probably ate all of these in about 2 days, if we’re being honest.
FAQ about this recipe
The hard sourdough pretzels work best and really absorb the flavor. The smaller pretzels may not hold up as well!
You want to crush the pieces into bite sized pieces. For example, pretzel pieces that are too big won’t take on as much seasoning but if they’re too small, you’ll be left with pretzel breadcrumbs! (Which may be kinda good to bread some chicken? We may need to try that!)
Yes, of course! Toss in a couple of teaspoons of red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to give them a little heat.
These pretzels are perfect on their own but would also be great as croutons in a salad or as a soup topping! We’ve thought about grinding the pieces really small to make breadcrumbs for breaded chicken. They also go really well on a charcuterie board.
