Happy National Pretzel Day


This is a big week in national food holidays.  The 25th was National Zucchini Bread Day, the 27th is National Prime Rib Day, and the 26th, the day we are looking forward to the most, is National Pretzel Day.  And can you believe we don’t get a day off of work for these days?  Until we do, we might as well spend the day celebrating National Pretzel Day the way we know best, by stuffing our faces with delicious homemade pretzel recipes.

When you untwist and break down the pretzel, what is there really not to like about it?  It’s buttery and baked until it’s crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.   And then someone had the great idea of not just making pretzels appetizers and snack food, but also dessert!  You can top them with cinnamon and brown sugar.  Dip them in a sweet caramel sauce.  The possibilities are limitless!

We’ve collected some of our favorite pretzel recipes to help you celebrate the National holiday.  Get twisted this April the 26th and make some pretzels.

Check out these wonderful ideas from some of our favorite bloggers.  Happy National Pretzel Day and happy eating!

    Just looking at those pretzels makes me hungry! I especially like the Homemade Soft Pretzels and Cream Cheese Beer Dip. I plan on making some of those over the weekend.
