These are so addictive! I'm not a sports fan. But, now that football season is upon us these would be great for a tailgating party. You can also make these with oyster crackers and they would be fantastic too. Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a simple way to put a little zing into a plain old pretzel. The ranch adds tons of flavor. Dill is the secret ingredient that adds a savory-something you just can't put your finger on. These are a cinch to throw together and a great snack for tailgating. They'd also be great in small bags for teacher gifts or holiday flavors... something a little different from all the holiday sweets.
