Yes, I know it’s hard to believe, but that popular salty mix of pretzels and cereal does in fact contain P.H.O. It’s in the little cracker-y things. So how do we solve this dilemma and still get our snack fix? We make our own mix, of course! And substitute a handful of homemade crackers for those little pieces of salty dry wall. It's super simple, really. Ready? Let's go!
Snack Attack (original recipe can be found here)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic-chili sauce (recommended: Sriracha)
½ teaspoon garlic, grated
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (cut back for a little less heat!)
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups rice cereal squares
1 cup cornflakes
2/3 cups crackers, broken into small pieces (find the recipe here)
½ cup unsalted nuts, such as peanuts, sliced almonds, or pepitas
Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Whisk first seven ingredients in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir to combine—be careful not to crush your mixture into crumbs! Spread on a baking sheet and bake, stirring often, until golden, about 30 minutes.
And there you have it! A homemade snack to satisfy your salty cravings, without leaving a bad taste in your mouth.
|Until next time!|
