I have a recipe for some Cheesy Soft Pretzel Twists. To make these Soft Pretzels you’ll be needing Cooking Spray, Reduced-Fat Finely Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Garlic Powder, Oregano, Dry Yeast Hot Roll Mix, All Purpose Flour, Egg Whites, Water, Salt, and Poppy Seeds. The Pretzels are 139 calories and 21 net carbs per serving. The recipe is from the Diabetes Self Management website where you can find a huge selection of Diabetic Friendly Recipes, Diabetes News, Diabetes Management Tips, and more! You can also subscribe to the Diabetes Self Management Magazine. Each issue is packed with Diabetes News and Diabetic Friendly Recipes. I’ve left a link to subscribe at the end of the post.

Cheesy Soft Pretzel Twists
Ingredients
Preparation time: 45 minutes
Baking time: 14–16 minutes per pan

Cooking spray
1 cup (4 ounces) reduced-fat finely shredded Cheddar cheese
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 package (16 ounces) dry yeast hot roll mix, plus ingredients to prepare
All-purpose flour (to prevent sticking)
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons poppy seeds

Directions
Yield: 16 pretzels
Serving size: 1 pretzel

1 – Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat two baking sheets with cooking spray and set aside. In a small bowl, mix together cheese, garlic powder, and oregano; set aside.

2 – Prepare hot roll mix dough according to package directions (the dough does not need to rise). On a clean, floured surface using clean, floured hands, divide the dough into four equal portions (a sharp knife or pizza cutter works well to cut dough). Shape each portion into a ball. Take one dough ball at a time and divide it into four equal pieces (for a total of 16 pieces). Roll each piece into an 8-inch rope. On a floured surface, pat each rope out until it’s 1 1/2 inches wide. Sprinkle each lightly with cheese mixture. Fold each rope over lengthwise and pat to seal. (You now have sixteen 8-inch dough ropes stuffed with cheese.) Place dough ropes on baking sheets and twist into pretzel shape (pretzels do not need to rise).

3 – In a small bowl, whisk together egg white and water until frothy. Brush pretzels well with egg white mixture (this helps the pretzels brown during baking), sprinkle with salt, then poppy seeds.

4 – Bake for 14–16 minutes, or until golden brown (watch closely during last few minutes of baking). Transfer to a cooling rack.

* Store leftovers in an airtight container or a zip-top bag in the refrigerator. Warm slightly before eating (a toaster oven works nicely to restore outer crispness to pretzels).

TIP: Try warm pizza sauce for dipping.

I think I enjoy the cooking more than eating, there is nothing better than to watch the smile grow after someone’s first bite. Note from Steve: I am a flow of thought writer and apologize up front if I lose you. My family is used to it.
