The Basic Fundamentals

The crowd noise will be deafening when you kick-off the party with this fan-favorite munchie. Reduced sodium seasoned salt peps this snack blend & rallies more herbs & spices instead of salt. 

4 cups bugle-shaped snacks
3 cups rice cereal squares
3 cups pretzel sticks
1 cup lightly salted roasted almonds
2 tsp reduced sodium seasoned salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1/4 cup melted butter
3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 mini bag single serve microwave popcorn
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
Combine the bugles, the cereal, the pretzels & the almonds in a large bowl. Set aside.

Stir together the seasoned salt, the garlic powder & the ground red pepper in a small bowl.
Sprinkle over the cereal mixture & give it a toss.
Stir together the melted butter & the Worcestershire sauce.
Drizzle half of the butter mixture over the cereal & toss well to coat. Repeat.

Spread the cereal mixture onto a lightly greased half sheet pan.
Bake 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes. Cool completely.

Prepare the popcorn according to package instructions. Toss with the cereal mixture.
Sprinkle with pepper. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days.

The Extra Point

A variety of snack nibbles & cereals can be substituted for an instant game changer. Simply make an equal exchange to maintain the overall flavor of the mix.
