When my parents came to visit last weekend they brought me a new cookbook; cookbooks are one of my favorite things ever. I have a bit of a collection, I should show y’all pictures of it sometime…
While I was skimming through the cookbook I came upon a Parmesan Pretzel Rod recipe and knew I had to try it.
Garlic, Parmesan, Cayenne, Oregano, Butter and Olive Oil combined with crispy salty pretzel rods… yes, please!
I would shake more of the excess coating before baking next time, they’re still amazingly good but, the coating is a bit heavy as seen in this picture 😉
- 1 C grated Parmesan/Asiago Cheese Mix (yes, the stuff in the shaker)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried Mexican Oregano
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper (or ¼ tsp for the sensitive palate)
- 6 Tbsp butter, sliced for easier melting
- ¼ C olive oil
- roughly 25 to 30 pretzel rods
- In a small bowl, combine cheese, garlic, oregano and cayenne
- Put olive oil and butter in a small saucepan, heat until the butter is melted
- Coat ½ to ¾ of the pretzel rod with the butter/oil mixture; roll the pretzel rods in the cheese mixture and gently tap to shake the excess cheese from the pretzel.
- Put the pretzel rods on an un-greased baking sheet, bake at 275 F for 10 minutes, turn each pretzel rod halfway and then bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
- Allow to cool and store in a closed container.
