    This looks delicious. How do you like the pretzel coating with pieces that large? Have you tried a smaller, finer grind of pretzel? Either way, this looks so great and I love dijon mustard! Can’t wait to try this one at home.

      Hi Billy,
      It is just delicious with the pretzels large or small, and up to you! The bigger pieces stay better on the top and finer pieces on the sides. We love this a fun easy recipe, it is a quick weeknight “winner dinner” with everyone in our home. Enjoy!
