These Cajun Seasoned Pretzels come together using only 5 ingredients! Packed with flavor, these make the ultimate snack anytime of the day!
These are DEFINITELY my new favorite snack! Even as I am typing this, I am debating whether or not to go into the kitchen and grab a bowl. I cannot recommend these enough!
A few days ago, I was in the mood for a snack. As you may know from the blog, I have a total sweet tooth. However, I was craving salty versus sweet in that moment.
After rummaging through my pantry, I found a bag of unopened pretzels. I had planned to simply open the bag and eat a few, but remembered I had been sent some new Cajun seasoning to try out and what better way to try it out than on pretzels, right?!
I decided to add in Old Bay seasoning to offset the potential heat from the Cajun seasoning. After tossing a few ingredients together and putting these into the oven, they were ready to enjoy about 30 minutes later!
Not only did my house smell great, but these were (or should I say ARE) incredible! PACKED with flavor!
I decided to put these through the ultimate test and have my three kids try some. My kids don’t like a lot of heat, typically can be picky, and for sure opinionated. After my kids tried these, I asked for their thoughts and was surprised that they all (3 of them) gave these 5 stars. Zero complaints! In fact, they each grabbed a bowl of these and enjoyed them as their snack!
I used a Cajun seasoning blend called Cajun Nation Seasoning which was great!! I have also listed a few of my favorites below for more options!
Not only do these Cajun Seasoned Pretzels make a great snack, but they also would make a great gift for friends/teachers/family!
