Ingredients

  • 3
    cups Wheat Chex™ cereal
  • 3
    cups Rice Chex™ cereal
  • 1
    cup pretzel nuggets
  • 2
    cups small cheese-flavor crackers
  • 1
    cup salted roasted soy nuts
  • 1/2
    cup olive oil
  • 3
    tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2
    teaspoons garlic salt
  • 3
    teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/3
    cup grated Parmesan cheese

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 300°F. In large bowl, mix cereals, pretzels, crackers and soy nuts.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix oil, vinegar, garlic salt and Italian seasoning. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring to coat. Spread in ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan.
  • 3
    Bake about 30 minutes, stirring twice, until toasted. Sprinkle with cheese; toss to coat. Cool completely, about 45 minutes. (Cereal will crisp as it cools.) Store in airtight container.

  • In place of the Italian seasoning, you can use 1 1/2 teaspoons each of dried basil leaves and dried oregano leaves.
  • Look for soy nuts with the other snack nuts or by the healthy snacks. The pretzel nuggets are available in several flavors. Choose your favorite.
