Old Bay Chex Mix

One of my favorite snack-type foods is chex mix.  One of my favorite seasonings is Old Bay.  Love that stuff.  I mix it with butter for corn on the cob or on baked potatoes.  I sprinkle it on french fries.  I use it on baked fish.  I sprinkle it on buttered popcorn.  I even put it on my strawberry yogurt in the morning.  Okay, I’m kidding about that last one but I really do love the stuff 😉

After a couple of tries, I came up with this recipe and it gets requested all the time at work.  I have to say it is pretty tasty.  So next time your feeling chexy, whip up a batch!

Old Bay Chex Mix

2 c.  extra cheddar goldfish
3 c. crispix cereal
2 c. oyster crackers
2 c. pretzel sticks
1 c. dry roasted peanuts

6 T. butter, melted
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. dried basil
1/4 t. ground dry mustard
1/4 t. smoked paprika
1 T. + 1 t. Old Bay Seasoning
Sea salt to taste

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl combine the first 5 ingredients and mix together. 

In a cup or bowl combine the next 7 ingredients. 

Mix throughly and pour over the dry ingredients.  Toss to coat evenly.  Spread evenly onto two baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes. 

Let cool and enjoy!  Have a great weekend y’all 🙂

    My mom’s boyfriend would go crazy for this, he’s a little obsessed with chex mix. I hadn’t really tried Bay Seasoning too much before we moved to Delaware—but they use it on everything here and we love it. Old Bay french fries are a favorite 🙂

    It’s ticking me off how I keep missing your blog posts. Sorry I’m always a day or two behind! I have my email filters set so that blogs go to a separate folder and I can’t single out your blog since all wordpress blog go to that folder. And I obviously don’t keep up with it every day. I might have to just change it even if I don’t want all the other wordpress blogs in my inbox, having yours in there would make it worth it.

    So is this the mix you told me about? It sounds so yummy! I’m not sure if I like Old Bay, I know I’ve had it but can’t remember what it tastes like so if it’s good enough for yogurt (lol) I supposed I should try it again! The mix sounds sooo addictive. I bet we’d eat the whole thing warm-haha.

    P.S. Do you actually eat strawberry yogurt?

      You know any emails relating to me are going to do funky things V, I have the internet demon on my end…lol! 😉 Yep, this is the one I told you about. I’m pretty sure you’d like Old Bay knowing some of the seasonings you like, etc. Oh yeah, I dig in when it’s warm too 😉 I eat yogurt when I go on a health kick, which lasts about a week cuz it’s too sweet…ha ha ha!!

      • Veronica says:

        LOL, what about plain yogurt? Now that is SOUR! Add some sour cherries and you’re good to go. 🙂 And try the Greek stuff it’s sooo creamy and thick.
