These were great. I didn't have pretzels so I used Italian bread crumbs and some mustard. Read More

I didn't feel that the honey mustard pretzels added much flavor but the burgers were very moist and we enjoyed them. I'd likely add some dijon to the patty mix if I wanted more mustard flavor. As a side note though I did fall in love with just eating the flavored pretzels! Read More

I added a tbls of dijon to the mix and actually added some chopped onion. This were really moist but next time I will add more dijon to pick up the flavor. I did add about 1/8 of a tsp of black pepper and next time will probably increase that also. Read More

Very moist...I love the honey-mustard pretzels so I was really looking forward to these burgers but it did not add that much of the flavor...next time I will use more and I think I will not use the egg and then grill them in a grill pan. Will update on the results! Thanks for the recipe! UPDATE: I mixed the lean turkey meat green peppers pretzels and some dijon mustard together and pattied out the burgers. Ohh I added chopped cilantro and thought it went awesome with it! I grilled on a grill pan and they were excellent. Thanks for the recipe!!! Read More

Suprisingly good even though it looked dry it was great -- I used red pepper because thats what I had on hand and sharp cheddar cheese. Served on a slice of toasted rye bread. The cheese mustard pretzels & rye bread flavors blended together really well. Grilled for about 7 min each side. Read More

My son is allergic to eggs so I used and egg substitute. I also had a red bell pepper and no green and plain pretzels. It turned out well and my son really liked it. I was worried they would be to crumbly with the EnerG egg substitute but it was just fine. Read More

The pretzels add a great flavor with a bland meat. Read More
