  • 4 cups rice chex cereal
  • 4 cups corn chex cereal
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 2 cups pretzels I like the small square ones
  • 2 cups bagel chips, broken up I like the roasted garlic or rye flavor
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed and chopped
  • 5 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves removed and chopped
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • kosher salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter until it's browned and nutty, being careful not to burn.
  • Off the heat, add the worcestershire, onion and garlic powders, herbs, and 1 teaspoon salt and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • In a very large bowl, mix the chex cereals, almonds, pretzels, and bagel chips together with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the browned butter mixture and mix thoroughly to combine.
  • Spread mixture out on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, taste for salt and add another teaspoon if desired, and pat evenly.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, tossing every 15 minutes to crisp evenly.
  • Cool and store at room temperature.
