Who wouldn’t want the smell of browned butter and sage wafting through their house in the fall? It’s the perfect excuse to keep this killer Chex mix in the oven all season-long. The combo of the warm flavors of brown butter and sage with a crunchy, salty Chex mix make for a snack you won’t be able to put down.
Browned Butter and Crispy Sage Chex Mix

Browned butter and crispy sage are a perfect flavor combination for cooling temperatures. Combine those rich, warm flavors with a classic mixture of Chex cereal, mixed nuts, pretzels, and bagel chips, and you have the perfect snack for munching on.

You’ll need: Rice Chex, Wheat Chex, Corn Chex, mixed nuts, mini pretzels, bagel chips, sage, and butter. We’ll also be adding a boost of flavor with a few spices and some Worcestershire sauce.


To start, add butter to a skillet and cook until it starts to foam. Once it’s foaming, stir in some chopped sage and keep cooking until the butter is browned. This whole process only takes about 5 minutes.


Add the rest of your ingredients to the largest mixing bowl you can find.


Pour the butter and sage over the top and give it a stir. You’ll want to microwave this for 6 minutes, stopping every couple of minutes to stir.

Once it’s done cooking, pour it out onto a paper towel lined baking sheet to cool and you’re done!
