What makes a good appetizer?
Is it the use of unique ingredients? Is it an easy-to-share plate? Or maybe it is small bites that don’t leave you too full for your main meal? Appetizers can easily get overlooked, but sometimes they can also be the main star of the menu.
Following industry and consumer trends is a great way to start building out a delicious appetizer menu, but like all good things, tried and true products are the best way to win over your customers’ hearts (and stomachs)!
At Backerhaus Veit we have a variety of bread products that act as standout additions to your appetizer menu, but one of our favourites (and our customers too) is our variety of Soft Bavarian pretzel breads and rolls!
Pretzels live in their own special category in the world of bread, and customers can’t get enough! But in order to keep them in this high-quality tier, restaurants need to know how to utilize them in innovative ways. We’ve collected some of our favourite pretzel breads and paired them with delicious appetizer ideas to get your taste buds tingling!
Fun, poppable, savoury little nuggets of joy, our pretzel bites are crafted to perfection and give you the saltiness you love in a full-size pretzel.
The possibilities when it comes to our bites are truly endless, and they have quickly become a fan-favourite for appetizer menus. Sure, you could sprinkle on some salt, and serve with some beer cheese, but we have some other tasty ideas up our sleeves.
