Kirsten's Kickin' Pretzels

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by flightnurse

Broken sourdough pretzels seasoned with a combo of spices. This recipe is always requested, especially when enjoying with a cold brew! Beware, these are can cut back the amount of cayenne (1 tsp seems to be tolerable for all palettes) I have tried many, but none seemed to have what I think makes these extra special, It's a Dilly and lemon pepper.

Excellent! I brought these to work for a treat day and they were a huge hit. I used the pretzel nuggets and they worked great!
