Cookin' With Leo
More Snackin' Stuff
A' course all us Rednecks cain't set around scratchin our ass while watchin the Indy 'n waitin' fer some Barbequed Pig's Snouts, Colorado Kool Aid, and Red Beans. So a good host will always have some Snackin' Stuff ready. This here will keep most anybody happy long enough to kill a case or two of CKA. So, we are gonna' make some (so called) Party Mix out of all the busted up nuts an' pretzels what got tossed into the back of the pickup a few days ago.
For starters, a quick check of the pickup bed will yield most of these ingredients, if not, well then head for the super and stock up on the following. But be sure to carelessly toss what you got into the pickup bed and return home by way of the old gravel road. This will save you the time of making little bits and pieces like Kibbles and Bits (hey, that there's a good name fer this recipe.)
Kibbles 'n Bits fer Humans and/or Rednecks
3 - cups (busted, but not too badly busted) Corn Chex cereal
3 - cups (same as above) Rice Chex cereal.
3 - cups (repeat) Wheat Chex cereal.
1 ½ - cups (out of the shell of course) mixed nuts.
1 ½ cups broken pretzels.
Now take one more look in the glove box of the pickup and fetch them two Bagels what been in there fer a few days, they should be easy to break up by now, and they'll freshen up when we do our mixin' with the good stuff.
The following is the good stuff, which will require a little better handling.
1 - stick of butter (real cow stuff, not the fake junk)
2 - tblspns Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
1 - tsp Onion Powder (not onion salt)
1 - tsp Garlic Powder (not Garlic salt)
1 ½ - tsp Seasoned Salt
A dash of Louisiana Hot Sauce.
Now, then, we got everything we need? Ok let's get cookin'.
Heat up the oven to about 225-250 degrees.
Get a big roastin' pan that will hold all the ingredients and melt the butter in it.
Mix in all the good stuff with the melted butter.
Now toss in all the broken bits and pieces of the stuff you rescued from the bed of the pickup and mix thoroughly and make sure it is all coated well with the good stuff.
Pop the whole mess into the heated oven for about one hour, but every 10 or 15 minutes stir it all up well to keep it coated and heated throughout.
When it is cool enough dump it all into a big bowl and set it by the tub of iced CKA so them Rednecks can crunch cans with one hand while reaching for a snack with the other.
