I am always looking for new and fun ways to feed me and my kids.  Anything that can be fun and nutritional is on my radar!  So when I found out that Labriola Pretzel Bread was being sold at Costco nationwide, I had to see what this was about!

Labriola Pretzel Bread

I was lucky enough to get a bag of the Pretzel Slider Buns and I could not wait to open them up!  And I was glad I did not wait.  This rich, hearty bread has a light flavor and is something unique to offer my kids!  I was boring and topped the slider buns with ham and cheese and egg salad, but there are some amazing recipes you can make as well!

In a bowl whisk beer with the rice flour until very smooth. Add in salt and garlic powder and chili pepper (if using). Let sit out at room temperature for 10 minutes. Heat oil to 375 degrees. Dredge the pretzel bread into the batter coating completely with batter, letting any excess drip off. Deep-fry turning once until golden (about 3 minutes). Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Place tempura pretzel bread in a bowl, add your favorite ice cream. Top with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce and powdered sugar.

Recipe courtesy of Jess De Guzman-Executive Chef-Sunda and Mike Morales-Executive Sous


1 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
4 ounces pineapple juice
1 ounce fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2 ounces shallots, chopped
½ cup kewpie mayonnaise
½ cup ketchup
1 tablespoon sriracha hot sauce

1 lb high quality ground beef (such as wagyu)
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon curry powder
3 green onions, chopped, green part only
12 Labriola Pretzel Rolls, sliced in half
12 slices triple-cream brie cheese (sliced very thin)


To prepare the glaze: In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine soy sauce, sugar and pineapple juices, ginger and the white parts of the 3 green onions. Cook until mixture is reduced by half. Strain the liquid and discard the solids. Makes 1/2 cup. Set aside.

To prepare the soy-ginger mayo: In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and 1 tablespoon of theprepared glaze, above. Chill.

To prepare the sliders: In a mixing bowl, combine the beef, 1 tablespoon of the prepared soy ginger glaze (above), onion powder, garlic powder and the green parts of the 3 green onions. Form into 12 patties. Set aside. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Preheat the grill or a griddle.

Place the bottom half of the rolls, cut side up, on a serving platter and dress with a teaspoon of the soy ginger mayo. Place the top half of the rolls, cut side up, on a baking sheet and top with the cheese slices. Heat in the oven until the cheese is softened, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, grill or sear the patties until they reach the desired doneness. Place the patties on the bottom half of the buns, brush with soy ginger glaze and top with the other half of the bun and serve.

Don’t these look amazing? My kids and I have these on my list for our trip to Costco later this month and then I am all over trying even more delicious recipes!  Like top them with butter, tomatoes and Swiss cheese and bake?  Oh – my – YUM!
