After trying a bunch of different tries at making spicy pretzels I finally came up this one. It goes great as a tv snack, and the heat at the end really finishes well, enjoy!
- 2 (15 ounce) bagsold dutch thins fat free pretzels
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil or 1⁄2 cup canola oil
- 4 teaspoons garlic powder
- 4 teaspoons lemon pepper
- 2 (1 ounce) packages hidden valley ranch dressing mix
- 4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- Preheat Oven at 250º.
- Get your basic turkey roaster pan and spray the inside with no-stick cooking spray.
- Grab handfuls of pretzels and place them evenly in the roaster, try to avoid dumping in all the excess salt and broken pieces on the bottom of the bag.
- Hand mix together all other ingredients in a seperate bowl until all ingredients are mixed up really well.
- Pour this mixture evenly over the pretzels in the pan.
- Place the lid on and grasp the handles and lid tight and shake the pretzels so that they all are evenly coated.
- Place in the oven for 2 hours, stirring and shaking every 30 minutes.
- Make sure you stir up the pretzels on the bottom of the pan otherwise they will get burnt. When they are done cooking, I usually set the roaster out and let them cool for 15-20 minutes. After that I place them in a large bowl for serving.
The aroma of the spices was great, BUT when I mixed 'all the ingredients' it was a gummy mess. I tried heating it before putting it on the pretzels, it didn't work.
this is a great seasoning mixture. i've found if you mix the pretzels and the wet ingredients together first and then use a shaker with the dry ingredients you can get a more even coating. super awesome combo of spices though. try it on chex or saltines.
