Nicole, our Compliance and Reporting Team Leader, shares her cheese pretzel recipe. A quick, easy and delicious snack to have with the family!

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups self-rising flour (220g), plus more for dusting
  • 1 cup greek yogurt (245g)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup mozzarella shredded cheese (Tasty Shredded Cheese is great too!)
  • Salt
  • Rosemary or mixed herbs
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)

Makes 6

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the self-rising flour, greek yogurt and cheese until it comes together to form a ball.
  3. Transfer the dough ball to a lightly floured work surface and use your hands to begin flattening and shaping the dough into a roughly 8-inch (20 cm) disk.
  4. Using a knife, cut the dough into 6 equal pieces.
  5. One at a time, roll each piece out into a roughly 30cm long log.
  6. Transfer the logs to a Baking paper-lined sheet pan and shape into individual pretzels.
  7. Brush the pretzels with egg wash, sprinkle with salt and Rosemary. (Optional sprinkle some Parmesan Cheese)
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, until the pretzels are a deep golden brown.
  9. Enjoy! (Tip: Dip into some tomato sauce or relish)
    The cheese can be omitted as well if you prefer to keep it simple!
