Helpful hints

  • Snyder’s of Hanover brand pretzels were tested in this recipe, but any kind of unsalted pretzel may be used.
  • Some brands of low-sodium pretzels contain potassium chloride. Check ingredients and avoid if you are on a low potassium diet.
  • The number of pretzels in one ounce varies based on the shape and size. Check the label on the pretzel bag for more information.

So, I thought a regular size bag was a 32 oz bag but it was only ten. I made them anyway. They are good but I imagine the seasoning would be bland if I had used 32 oz? Also next time I think I will cut the garlic down to 1 and a half teaspoons but that is just my preference. Thanks for the recipe DaVita!

This recipe sounds good but I want to know if there were anything you could use instead of the dried dill? My sister and I are not fond of dill, so if there's anything else we can use that would be great. Dietitian comment: How about ground cumin or a salt-free herb seasoning blend?

So if the sodium on bag says 160mg at 7% daily intake per serving, (sun chips) please layman's terms. Dietitian comment: First you must know your daily goal for sodium. For example, 2000 mg sodium spread into 3 meals and 1 snack of 200 mg or less allows you to have 600 mg sodium per meal. If you total the sodium from the foods you eat you can see how close you are to this goal. If one meal exceeds the 600 mg goal, you can cut down sodium at the next meal and still stay within your 2000 mg daily goal. Check out the DaVita Diet helper Planner & Tracker to see how much sodium you are eating each day.

Can't wait to try this Can any other oil be used? Dietitian comment: Sure[INVALID]you can try different oils, but I suggest sticking to an oil that does not have a strong flavor.

I have made this many times. I don't care for dill so I omit that. Sometimes I add rice Chex to the mix. Yummy! If you live near a 99Cents store they carry a bag of stick pretzels with very little salt on them.

I've been looking for non-salted pretzels fora year. None in my small town.Tried Super Saver in Lincoln. They don't carry. Where do I find them? Made with salted pretzels, but realize I can't eat but a couple. Delicious!!!!! Dietitian comment: Look for a store that carries Snyder's brand or Newman's Own. Ask the store manager to order them if they are not on the shelf. You can also order unsalted pretzels online.

jazdancer says:

could this be made with oyster crackers instead of pretzels Moderator comment: No I would not recommend it due to the sodium difference. 32 oz unsalted pretzels = 160 mg sodium; 32 oz low sodium oyster crackers = 1760 mg sodium; 32 oz regular oyster crackers = 10,057 mg sodium.
