These are great at picnics, parties or just to have around for a snack. Definitely not your typical boring old pretzels. They disapear quick, but if you have any left, store in airtight containers. Time does not include 1 hour sitting time.
- 1 package ranch dressing (dry powder)
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dill weed
- 2 lbs bavarian pretzels or 2 lbs sourdough hard pretzels (the big fat ones)
- Break or smash pretzels into bite sized pieces.
- Pour pretzels into baking pans.
- (You will probably need 2 rectangular cake pans, foil will do) Mix all other ingredients together and pour over pretzels.
- Stir to make sure they are completely coated.
- Leave sit for about an hour allowing flavors to soak in and then preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring once or twice.
- Allow to cool and store in air tight containers.
I have made these many, many times - but with mini-ritz crackers. I tried the pretzels and they were awesome too!! This is a great recip for snacking on - I add a bit more dill-weed to mine - gives it bit more "zip". Great recipe!!
Love this recipe. I found this several years ago in a local church cook book and make them frequently. My recipe calls for 1/2-1 c. oil (peanut or olive oil)-I use the lesser amount. It also is made using 1 tsp. of each of the spices instead of 1/2 tsp. I usually use bite size "little ones" pretzels instead of hard pretzels (personal preference). Delicious and simple to make - always a hit. Totally addicting!! Thanks for posting a winning reciped!
Loved them!! A client had given me a bag of them for xmas, and I could not stop eating them!! I think I might try add parm cheese next time. Thanks for the recipe.
