    Boca Pat's Note:

    This recipe is from one of our favorite restaurants. We usually only go there on special occassions, as it's quite the pricey place!! I couldn't believe my eyes, when I found this recipe in our local paper. I have since made it and it's absolutely wonderful.

      Great recipe, everyone enjoyed. The mustard in the sauce is key as it is delicious with the pretzel crust.

      I am so glad to see this recipe! We recently had it for supper at a pricey brewery restaurant in Cleveland but it was absolutely delicious! I can't wait to make it and I know my hubby will be surprised! I will review when I make it myself.

      A special dish that is not too complicated, but a little extra effort is required. It takes a little extra time to grind the pretzels, shred the cheese etc. And you do have to find the batter mix, and if your not a beer drinker you have to make a special effort to get beer. Even with that being said, I think it was worth it. I just loved this dish and would even add it to my short list. I did brine the breast for 8 hours and I had to cook it about five minutes longer in the oven than called for.
