I wasn’t expecting much from these slow cooker onion garlic pretzels. The recipe did catch my eye, mostly because it contains onion soup/dip mix. I love that stuff. I mix with it sour cream and grab some Fritos and I’m set. So I made this and boom! I’m in love! First of course, there’s the great onion soup flavoring. You know the one, sorta beef bouillon-like. And a hint of garlic. And butter. And the great crunch of salty pretzels. It’s like everything great in a snack in a single bite. And oh so easy to make!
I think you could make these slow cooker onion garlic pretzels with other than pretzel rods. Yeah, it takes a few minutes to break them into pieces and it’s a bit messy, but it’s worth it. But if you’re in a hurry, grab some pretzel nuggets or bites and they’ll work just fine. I just wouldn’t get anything that has anything but salt on it. No flavorings, like cheddar or bacon or something. Get them plain and you’ll be fine!
