Grilled Bacon Wrapped Soft Pretzels
culinary lobe of my brain | 4/9/14 | Rebelbase

Posted on 04/09/2014 9:44:57 AM PDT by Rebelbase

Made a batch of soft pretzel sticks, wrapped them in 3-4 slices of bacon and grilled till crispy.

Used a generic soft pretzel recipe from the web and doubled up on the yeast, won't do that next time.

These lasted all of about 30 seconds at a party last Saturday.

KEYWORDS: bacon
Going to use peppered bacon next time!

With the price of bacon these days, you could wrap these in 10 dollar bills.

Clarification: “Used a generic soft pretzel recipe from the web and doubled up on the yeast, won’t do that next time.”

The web recipes are fine. Too much yeast made it less pretzel texture and more bread like. Also need to punch down the dough after it rises, which I didn’t do.

So you baked and grilled simultaneously, or were the pretzels already pre-baked/finished? They look great.

Pretzels were made first. Make the dough, let it rise, form the sticks, boil them for 30 seconds, put on baking sheet and brushed them with an egg wash that had one egg and two tablespoons of Jamison, baked at 450 for about 18 minutes.

I was at my son’s house and they are salt snobs over there. Used fresh ground pink Himalayan salt on top of the egg wash.

Here is a guaranteed great soft pretzel recipe from King Arthur Flour. I've been baking them for years. They take 1.5 hours from start to out of the oven. For some reason, women go nuts over them far more than men. Always a hit at Super Bowl parties. I wish I had this recipe when I was a teenager.

Wonder how it would taste with bacon infused into the dough?

I’ll try that, will have to add some cheese, maybe hidden inside the pretzel.

YUM! Another great recipe is to take Hebrew National hot dogs, wrap each with two slices of bacon, and grill them the way you did with your pretzels. Of course, if you’re Jewish and do this, expect to entertain the other partiers by running around the yard trying to escape the lightning bolts.
