Perfect as a snack, appetizer, or paired with some protein for a light meal, these seasoned pretzels are delicious any time of day!
How’s everybody holding up these days? Are you all sick of cooking yet? It was nice to get a day off last weekend with Mother’s Day. My guys made Belgian waffles for breakfast (and they were so good and filling we didn’t need lunch), then we got a couple pizzas and salad for dinner. It was just nice for me to not have to think about what we were going to eat for one day. I must say–because we’re home 24/7, I typically make easy meals for us. On Saturday some of my family came over and we had pasta with meat sauce (the sauce was simmering on the stove for hours…yum). That was much easier than making meatballs. It was so yummy but relatively very simple and not labor-intensive. So that’s kind of been my mentality lately–easy is best.
Speaking of easy, one of my boys’ favorite dinners is a charcuterie (or cheese) board. I simply load up one of my many homemade wooden boards with all the goodness I can find in my fridge. It often has cheese, prosciutto or another lunchmeat-type meat, fruit, nuts, veggies, chocolate, crackers or bread, and a sort of sauce–whether that’s dip, preserves, mustard, etc. It really just all depends on what I have on hand. It’s simple, rustic, and my boys love all the options.
These pretzels are the perfect addition to a charcuterie board! They have such flavor from the mix that they’re coated with that they make eating pretzels for dinner a viable option. 😉 I paired the pretzels with a spicy raspberry wasabi mustard–super delish!
Of course these pretzels can be used in any snack situation. I’m excited to make them once we’re able to have friends over again (that day can’t come soon enough!). They’re the perfect option for movie-watching (which we’ve been doing a lot of lately), a great addition to a picnic lunch…really any time you need or are craving something salty. They elevate that plain pretzel taste to something much more. I highly recommend that you make them sometime soon. Keep calm and eat seasoned pretzels! 🙂
