    LadyKatarina's Note:

    This recipe helped catch me a man! My now husband and I worked together, and he would make a regular stop at my desk to "steal" these delicious and addictive pretzels from my candy jar...his comment "Wow, these pretzels are delicious, but they give you Dragon Breath!" is the origin of the name. The rest is history. Possible variations of the recipe below: Variation: Mix in one or both of the following with step 1: 1/4 teaspoons lemon pepper. 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Alternative: Use 16 oz. plain oyster crackers instead of pretzels. Bake at 275 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes. Drain and cool on brown paper bag or paper towels before storing.

      I couldn't find the butter flavored oil so just used a reduced amount of oil. The pretzels are well seasoned and addictive. I know I'll be making these again! Made for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef.

      My sister served these just last week at a party, and although hers were called "Stinky Pretzels" the recipe is just about the same. I love these!!! I also like the idea of adding parmesan cheese to this. Great tip!!!
