This is another recipe handed down to me by my Mother. She made this great snack back before you could buy them ready made and they were tastier too.
I made a great batch for Christmas for gifts for my sons and son-in-law. It always seems to be well received. The only problem this year – there was not enough left over for us! After we got back from the celebrations in Alberta I decided to make a second batch just for my handy man and me.
The ingredients changed some as I have a real lactose intolerance and even though I love Cheese Doritos and other cheesy things I just can’t eat them. This is what I included in this batch.
- Cheerios 1 box
- Rice Chex 1 box
- Bugles 1 bag
- Tostito Blue Corn Chips 1 bag
- Terra Sweets & Beets (vegetable chips) 1/2 bag
- French’s French Fried Onions 2 containers
- Whole Mixed Nuts 1 large container from Costco
- Butter, Worcestershire Sauce and Seasonings – 1 lb and to taste
This makes a very large batch, probably 3 to 3.5 ice cream buckets full. You will need a large roaster or make it in two batches. Mix all the dry ingredients together and put in roaster. Actually, I hold off on the onions and nuts until after the butter is in.
Melt butter and add the Worcestershire Sauce. I usually put in a few glugs…is that a real measurement? Season is to your own taste. I like taco seasoning; seasoning salt; garlic. Pour evenly over the dry mix. Add in nuts and onions at this point. Stir. Well try to anyway.
Put the roaster in a low oven, 250-275 degrees and bake for an hour and a half. Stir it once or twice during the baking time. Smells delicious.
You won’t be able to stop nibbling on them!
