Italian Snack Mix

Looking for a tasty snack mix for the football playoffs this weekend?  I had bought a small bag in a convenience store last weekend and I knew after one bite that I could make something better.  Plus this has a little heat from red pepper flakes that makes it so much better.





Italian Snack Mix

4 cups Crispix
2 cups sea salt bagel chips
2 cups tiny twists pretzels
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated


Melt the butter in a small saucepan.  When melted, stir in garlic powder, oregano and the red pepper flakes.  In a large roaster, combine the Crispix, bagel chips and pretzels.  Pour the butter mixture over. Bake for 1 hour at 250°, stirring every 15 minutes.  At the 45 minute time, sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese on top and stir in.  Let cool and then store in an airtight container.
