My oldest son graduated with a degree in broadcast journalism. His first love was radio and his dream to work in it came true for a while when he was able to work for a local radio station, Mix 96. While there, one of the radio pesonalities he worked for was Jan D'Atri. She is a pretty well known radio personality here in the Phoenix area. You can find her on KFYI now. She is a lifestyle specialist, crafter, cook, radio show host, TV show host and producer. My son was able to help produce remote segments that she was the host of that also included her mother and some of her recipes. Since my son loves to cook, he really enjoyed these segments and he often brought home the recipes that they shared on the show. That is where today's recipe comes from. I checked out Jan's website to see if the recipe was included on it, and I found it here!. I also to have the copy that my son came home with so that I can share it with you in a printable form here as well.
These pretzels are addictive! They make great gifts, if you can save any for that, because once you start eating them it is impossible to stop. They are called stinky because they have ingredients like lemon pepper and garlic that will give you really bad breath. (There is a warning about that on the recipe!) Stinky Pretzels are easy to make and your friends and family will request them year after year. During the holidays, they are a nice break from all of the sweets!
Here are a few additional tips on making them:
Because of the popcorn oil, these can be a little pricey to make. That is why they are a seasonal recipe for us. Stinky Pretzels are something that we look forward to each year. Thanks Jan! My son has moved on to Law School now, but he has good memories of these segments and made sure I knew who to give credit to for this fabulous recipe!
