  • Summary

    A variation on homemade chex mix that includes bacon drippings!

    Ingredients

    • Ingredients:
    • 1 (12-ounce) box Rice Chex cereal
    • 1 (12-ounce) box Corn Chex cereal
    • 1 (14-ounce) box Wheat Chex cereal
    • 1 (12-ounce) box Kix cereal
    • 1 (8.9-ounce) box Cheerios
    • 1 (13.7-ounce) box Cheez-It crackers
    • 16 ounces plain bagel chips
    • 16 ounces pretzel sticks
    • 32 ounces salted peanuts
    • ¾ cup unsalted butter
    • 1 cup bacon grease
    • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
    • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
    • 1 tablespoon celery salt
    • 1 tablespoon onion salt
    • Directions:
    • 1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
    • 2. Place the cereals, crackers, bagel chips, pretzels and peanuts in a large roasting pan (you will probably need to use two) and stir to evenly combine.
    • 3. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt together the butter, bacon grease and Worcestershire sauce. In a small bowl, stir together the seasoned salt, garlic powder, celery and onion salts.
    • 4. Drizzle the melted butter mixture evenly over the dry ingredients, then evenly sprinkle the seasoning mixture. Using your (clean) hands or a large wooden spoon, gently stir to ensure that all of the ingredients are evenly coated.
    • 5. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely, then store in an airtight container or bag at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
    • Note: You can yield 1 cup of bacon grease from about 2 pounds of bacon. Just store the drippings in a glass jar or airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
