Garlic Topped Macaroni and Cheese

Pretzel-Topped Macaroni and Cheese

A fun take on this classic side dish, you’ll love the crunchy topping and added flavor our pretzel nuggets add. No matter which flavor of OMG! Pretzels you decide to use for your topping, you can use the same base recipe and method. We think Garlic, Chesapeake Spice (especially if you’re making lobster mac), or Cheddar Jalapeno work best for this recipe.
