I invented something. Possibly. There's nothing new under the sun, of course, but I haven't seen this snack anywhere. If you have, do tell. I'd love to know when, where, etc.
I want to sell this snack and make a fortune. Truth be told, I'd rather make a fortune by not doing anything, but I've tried it for a while and it's not working out that great.
I need to sell this snack. I've got big bags of it already piling up in my kitchen, and I've got a daughter at college who is expensive, so it's the only logical choice. Plus, Pretzel Crouton Snack Sticks are addictively wonderful to munch on. I want to make the world a better place on principle.
I'm about to launch this snack into the crunch-munch-eat-a-bunch world in Arlington, Virginia, where my husband will also deliver them personally to customers. But I will tell you how to make them. Partly because everyone deserves to enjoy these snacks. Partly because they are enough of a pain in the butt that you will want to order them from me anyway.
One of the go-to choices for a stale loaf is to make croutons with it. I will write a post about croutons soon. It's a problem, however, to have more croutons than salad (or soup). I have enough bread coming into the house from my son's job at a bakery that I could reverse the normal ratio of greens to croutons and still have extra cubes.
Herbed croutons are tasty though. I snacked on a few. Then I realized that I could stop kidding myself about using them on salad and eat them out of a bag. And if I was going to do that, it would be more convenient to cut them into a French fry shape instead of a cube.
And then a ginormous bag of aging soft pretzels came home. A Santa Claus-sized bag. I tried the herbed crouton recipe using pretzel "fries." Angels sang. Rainbows danced with unicorns. My daughter cleaned her room.
We need a better name, but Pretzel Crouton Snack Sticks is descriptive at least.
Venmo me $10 at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll send you a 6-ounce bag of these, free shipping.
In the meantime, here's how you can make your own.
Pretzel Crouton Snack Sticks
Yield: 8 cups
Use five big German stale soft pretzels. If they smoosh when you cut them with a sharp bread knife, they need to wait.
