Cheese pretzel

with Elbänder cheese

BASIC RECIPE: 1 pretzel

Pretzels belong to the most popular snack pastries. Topped with mild and nutty Elblaender cheese they become a special delight. Aromatic variety is guaranteed because Elblaender cheese is available in seven tasty variations. These include the Elblaender cheese original as well as varieties with chilli, wild garlic, fenugreek seeds and pepper as well as the reduced-fat version. By the way, working with Elblaender cheese slices is efficient, hygienic, consistent and thus calculable. Each pretzel is topped with one slice of Elblaender cheese with 20 g each before baking. When using grated cheese the accurate dosing is definitely more difficult.

20 g Elblaender cheese
