Can Pretzels Be a Dinner?

Can pretzels be dinner? For us at Uncle Henry’s…yeah, honestly! While we don’t necessarily mean grabbing a handful of pretzels and calling it a night, pretzels are a great carb to have solo or added to a meal! They can be stuffed and filled with all sorts of ingredients, cementing them in the “too heavy for a snack, too light for a full meal” category. Below are some ways to incorporate pretzels into your dinner (besides using pretzel crumbs as breading!). For pretzel desserts, check out our blog on salty and sweet treats!

Pretzel Bun Sandwiches

Sometimes a plain bun is boring. For those moments, we suggest making a pretzel bun! It’s more or less the same process, which makes it a breeze if you already have made soft pretzels. Use pretzel buns for your favorite sandwich or burger for a unique and delicious dinner.

Tip: try a burger on a pretzel bun with beer cheese- it’s a game-changer!

Pretzel Pockets

Who doesn’t love an easy-to-grab dinner? When making these, some opt for longer pockets, while others go for more manageable balls. Either way, fill your dough with your fillings, boil, and bake accordingly. Serve them up with some dipping sauces (and maybe a side salad), and you have a great dinner for any night. Some filling ideas:

  • Pizza.
  • Philly Cheese Steak.
  • Broccoli Cheddar.
  • Cheeseburger.
  • Ham and Cheese.
  • Taco.
  • BBQ Chicken.
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly (trust us).

Pretzel Dog

Whether you use mini sausages for an appetizer or a full-size meal, wrap your pretzel dough around your hot dog, then boil and bake per your recipe. Serve them on sticks or as is, and consider putting out some dips in addition to condiments!
