Jalapeno Chicken Salad Bacon Club on a Homemade Pretzel Bun

Sharing is caring!

Oh, dear.
IMGP73How do I begin to explain this one.

It’s just a delicious, magical and sinful hot mess all full of bacon goodness and wrapped up in a pretty little pretzel bun bow.

Is there such a word as succulantnessedness?? Probably not.

I made these pretzel buns from My Life as a Mrs. a few days ago and it was SO easy, and they tasted perfect. Probably the best pretzel recipe I’ve made so far.

Of course, you could use these buns for burgers or whatever (which we did last night). I just happen to have a thing for chicken salad. And jalapenos. What? You already knew that? Ok, so it shouldn’t surprise you that I had to add them to my chicken salad. I’ve already added habaneros to it here – just an FYI.

And I put more jalapenos on top. You know me. I actually wished I had added some hot sauce on top. Just because I can’t help but need that stuff all the time.

Can you see the texture of these?
IMGP6903They were amazing. And such a nice change to regular bread. It’s not that I don’t like regular bread, but pretzel buns are just fun.

And the ripe tomato made it…

    This looks delicious but I would hold off on the bacon (I don’t eat pork or beef) but other than that, definitely love the jalapenos and the rest of it!
