Nuts and Bolts

OK Dina...here it is.

Fill a roaster with, chex, crispix, shreddies, pretzels, nuts of any type you like, cheerios, bugles...whatever turns your crank.

1/4 cup oil
1 tbsp butter
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.

You're the best, Alix. Thanks again, my friend. I can't wait to try these too. Seems like most of my home meals lately are from "Alix's recipes"....LOL. I'm serious! I made that amazing tangy chicken too many times now and your shrimp bisque was absolutely awsome! Not to mention your brownies for Justin....heeheehee....he loves you already for that.

Dina :D

Goes both ways Dina. Your wine chicken is a fan favourite here as are your wonderful buttermilk biscuits!

I made this last year, and am ready to make it again. The spices and quantities that Alix used worked perfectly for me.

This year, in addition to multi grain Chex type cereal mix and mini pretzels, I'm adding honey roasted peanuts, raisins, and craisins.

Thanks again, Alix for a great recipe! I found it a great evening snack that I don't need to feel guilty about.

Glad to help out. I found some Bugles this year and I'm going to add them in to my regular batch of stuff. I love those things!

I've always wanted to try making my own.
Do they need to be spread in a single layer, Alix?

Not at all. I do mine in my turkey roaster. I fill it right up. I use a box of Crispix, Chex, Cheerios, a can of peanuts, a bunch of hazelnuts, pretzels, and sometimes mini shredded wheat and bugles. Mmmmmm! Can't wait to get going on these.

PS, sorry it took me so long to answer, I got booted off the work computer and have only just now logged on to my own.

Cool. If they don't need to be a single layer I should be able to make these in my CI DO. I don't have a roaster. I love these trail mix type of snacks.

My mom always added popcorn and used dry ranch dressing. This was in a big glass jar on top of the fridge...
