It’s football season! As a born and bred Pittsburgh native, football – and specifically the Steelers – are never far from my heart, and the start of the NFL season is always cause for excitement.

Of course at least half the fun for me is planning out the game day SNACKS! In football, as in many things, I love the overall atmosphere as much as the event itself, and clearly, a critical component of the overall atmosphere is the food.

There are so many game day treats and tailgate-worthy recipes I want to share here, but for today let’s keep it super simple, shall we? Seasoned pretzels are definitely not rocket science, in fact they’re a go-to crowd-pleasing snack for good reason. And this particular honey mustard combo is guaranteed to be a major hit.

Plus they are so incredibly easy to make, even in a big batch. Mix a tiny bit of olive oil with honey and whole-grain and dried mustard. Pour in the pretzels, toss to coat, and bake at a low temperature until they’re good and crunchy again and your whole house fills with that glorious honey-mustard smell.

While they’re baking, go ahead and browse the internet for some new, stretchier pants. Or, whip up a little dip to go with them – hummus is always a good choice, or change it up a little with white bean sun-dried tomato dip.

Of course, maybe you want a sweet complement, in which case, a batch of one-bowl chewy brownies never hurt anyone. Or double chocolate chunk espresso walnut cookies? Fancy Rice Krispy treats? So many choices.

Enjoy! And Go Steelers! 😉

    These pretzels would be dangerous in my house. I’m such a mindless snack eater, and I would devour these all day while watching football. I’m pinning this recipe for sure

    What a lovely way to up-do the simple pretzel! I am sure the same dressing can be used with a lot more snacks. Thanks for sharing!
