my mom always made her chex mix in her turkey roaster, she would make a couple batches every christmas. Last year I bought all the stuff for her to make it when she came to visit, she had a couple glasses of wine first and ended up using the TABLESPOON measure instead of the teaspoon, and kept shoveling in the season salt, That was some salty stuff!

I think I'll try your recipe this year.

This is what it looked like when I was done. I have to stop eating it so I can send some to my folks with the cookies. My mom also used to do seasoned oyster crackers....

1/4 cup oil

1 tbsp worcestershire sauce (BIG tbsp!)

Melt these together, being careful not to over heat!

1 tbsp each:

seasoning salt
garlic powder
onion powder
celery salt

Pour oil mixture over your nuts and bolts, stirring with your hands. When all are well coated sprinkle sesoning mixture over all. Keep stirring! Bake at 250 for 2 hours or so. Stir every 15 minutes.

So how big is your roaster? You fill it to the top? (probably not or they would spill out when you stir them)
I just went out to the kitchen to make these and realized you don't have a quantity. How much "nuts and bolts" can I expect your recipe to coat, so I'm not saturating too little a quantity or don't run short on too big a quantity?

Um...do you know I've never measured my roaster? Its the one I do turkeys in. It holds a 15lb bird nicely, a 20lber is squished into it. Does that help? It holds two full boxes of cereal, several cups of nuts and several handfuls of pretzels. Sorry pacanis, I'm not very specific.

Nooo, that doesn't help. I've never roasted or boughten a turkey and I don't own a roaster!


How many gallon bags do you think you could fill up?
Should the mixture look wet with the oil/butter/wooster sauce?
If it's still wet after a couple hours roasting, can I roast it longer to dry it out or will it burn?

Maybe I can find a recipe online that tells me how much of the dry ingredients to put in. Hopefully in cups, since cereal comes in different size boxes.

Would a big rectangular cake pan work? Maybe 2?

When I've done chex mix, it's not wet. Oh, Pac, Chex has a lot of great recipes, as does Crispix. Check out their websites.

When I go to make it, Dawg, (too late now) I will check out some recipes and try to correlate them to Alix's liquids. Once I've made it once I'll know what to look for in the dry/wet ratio, but for the first time I don't want to screw it up.
Now I wish I had bought a bag while I was standing at Walmart's checkout, but I thought I'd be making some today.

When you finish with nuts 'n bolts, you need to try Puppy Chow. Chocolate chips, peanut butter and oil, nuke, shake in a ziplock with powdered sugar. I think it's on the Crispex site, or maybe Chex. Google "puppy chow."

What's nice is you can do it in small batches. Any cereal will work, and if I can do it, it's basically idiot proof!
