11 Pretzel Recipes That Need to Be a Part Of Your Oktoberfest Feast
Whether you like them crispy and crunchy or soft, chewy and warm, there’s no doubt pretzels are a key snacking provision during Oktoberfest (or football season, for that matter). They’re salty and carby to soak up all that beer you’re going to drink and can act as a vehicle for dips, spreads, sauces and more. So whip up some beer cheese and mustard sauce (or even grab your fave store-bought barbecue sauce) and pick from the best pretzel recipes on the web.
No need to hit up Google to deep-dive into the world of pretzel-rati. We’ve done the legwork for you. We found a unique brisket sandwich on a pretzel roll that will make you forget all about Philly, two kinds of pretzel dogs, soft pretzels stuffed with gooey goodness — even a fusion option using the Japanese version of everything seasoning — and more. The only thing you have to do is decide which pretzel recipe you’re going to try first. But don’t stress too much. There are 10 days in Oktoberfest, so you have almost enough time to try them all.
If you’re a fan of the classics, these traditional pretzels are soft and chewy — and surprisingly easy to make.
