Crispy Crunchy Potato Pretzel Sticks

Crispy Crunchy Potato Pretzel Sticks

It doesn't even take 30 minutes to make this! This is a quick dish that can be a snack for children or something more adult-like that goes well with beer.

Ingredients: An easy to make amount.

Potato
1 small (60 g)
Cake flour
60 g
Butter (or margarine)
1 and 1/2 tablespoons
Soup stock granules
1 tablespoon
Salt and pepper
to taste

Steps

1. With the skin still on the potato, wash it in water, wrap it in plastic wrap and microwave it for about 4-5 minutes. Once it has cooled, remove the skin and mash it up. If you want to, you can also remove the skin before you microwave it and then mash it up.
2. Add the flour, butter, soup stock dissolved in a small amount of hot water, salt and pepper, and mix it well. At first it will appear crumbly but gradually it will start to look like this.
3. Now put it in a plastic bag and press it out till it's about 2 - 3 mm thick. Afterwards, if you put it in the freezer for about 5 minutes, it is easier to cut.
4. Next, cut the dough into about 2 - 3 mm wide strips and arrange them on a baking sheet so they do not touch.
5. In a oven, cook them for about 10 minutes or so until they become a lightly toasted color. If they look like they are going to burn, cover them with aluminum foil. If you are using an oven, cook them at about 350℉ (180℃) to 400℉ (200℃) for about 15-20 minutes.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was at my parents home with my children and we bought salad flavored Glico pretzel chips. I happened to look on the back at the ingredients list and "powdered mashed potatoes" was written.

I thought, "Wait, can't I simply make these at home??" So I took the ingredients that I had in my kitchen, and although I wasn't able to produce the exact same pretzel sticks, I was able to make a delicious crispy-crunchy hearty version. As of February 15, 2008 more than have commented on this. Thank you so much!
