TOTAL | 40 M
12 SERVINGS | 6 cups
Preheat oven to 250 °F.

Combine melted butter, spice mix, Worcestershire, and salt. Let sit for about 5 min to allow the dried onion and garlic to soften.

Combine the Chex cereal, pretzels, and bagel crisps in a large bowl. Then, drizzle the seasoned butter mixture over the top and gently toss with a rubber spatula to evenly coat.

Spread the Chex mixture in a thin even layer on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, stirring halfway through. Let cool before serving.

Expiry: 2 weeks
Add more salt to taste (one pinch at a time) to really bring out the onion and garlic flavors. I don’t recommend using salted butter, or the Chex Mix will be too salty.

Allium Blend
spice blend collab
When Selefina asked me to collaborate with them on a spice blend, I immediately thought of garlic and onion. I season basically everything with garlic and always add extra onion too! These two ingredients pack so much flavor-- pungent, but also a little sweet, with tons of umami. Sweet + Zesty Onion Mix was inspired by an onion soup mix, full of bold onion and garlic flavor. I’ve added two types of paprika and sriracha salt for depth of flavor and just a hint of spice. This savory all-purpose seasoning can be used anywhere you’d use garlic and/or onion powder. Usage ideas: • creamy soups, sauces, and dips • chili (or other hearty stews) • marinade for chicken (or other protein) Usage tip: This spice mix is best when added to a liquid, to soften up the dried onion and garlic pieces. Think soups, sauces, dips, marinades, etc.
