Sam’s Bacon Wraps
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons of garlic salt or powder (whichever you prefer)
12 slices of bacon (you can use turkey bacon if you’re trying to cut back on fat)
24 long, thick pretzels
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix the cheese and garlic salt (or powder) in a shallow bowl and set aside. Cut the slices of bacon in half and wrap a piece around each pretzel. Swirl the bacon so that it starts at the bottom and ends at the top. Place each pretzel stick on a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Back for about 15 minutes or until the bacon is browned. Take the bacon wrapped pretzels out of the oven and immediately roll bacon wraps in cheese and garlic mixture. Serve pretzels at room temperature.
