When it comes down to it, pretzels can be used in many aspects of cooking. From using their crumbs to even having them be the main component of your meal, there isn’t a plate that won’t be improved by a salty pretzel! We wanted to revisit incorporating pretzels in meals, so below are five creative (and delicious!) ways to use our Uncle Henry’s Broken Bits in your meals.

1.     Pretzel Croutons

If you love a good crunch in your salad, then this one’s for you. Swap out those croutons for broken bits of pretzel. They add a whole new layer of texture and flavor to your salad.

Tip: try coating your pretzels for an extra flavorful kick!

2.     Soup Topping with a Twist

Soup’s on, and it’s got a new best friend – pretzel pieces. Sprinkle a handful of these bite-sized morsels onto your favorite soup or chowder. It’s a fun way to add an unexpected crunch instead of crackers!

3.     Pretzel-Baked Mac n’ Cheese

Jazz up your regular mac n’ cheese by topping it with crushed pretzel pieces before baking. It adds an irresistible crispy layer that complements the creamy cheese beautifully.

4.     Pretzel-Stuffed Mushrooms

If you’re in the mood for a tasty and unique appetizer, look no further! Stuff your favorite mushrooms with a mix of cheese, herbs, and crushed pretzel bits, then bake until the cheese is melted.

5.     Pretzel Ice Cream Topping

Yes, you read that right! Crush some broken pretzel bits and sprinkle them over your favorite ice cream. The contrast of the salty pretzel and sweet ice cream is simply divine. It’s like having your dessert and snack all at once!
