Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful flavors I made this the other day looking for something a little different, the only pretzels I had on hand were Dots brand that are pretty garlicky but I went ahead and used them anyway, I also added about 3 tbs of parmesan cheese, then I followed directions using butter to drizzle over the top, I served with a side of grave and rice pilaf. My husband loved it and told me to hand on to this recipe

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good in theory The picture looks like the pretzel pieces are a bit bigger but they didn’t stick too well. Next time we will crush them smaller and see how that works. It should be delish and kid friendly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used club crackers instead of pretzels. It turned out pretty ok. Flavor was good but not as crunchy as the probably the pretzels. I’ll be sure to use pretzels next time. :)
