I remember when i was younger we would make chex mix all the time with just the chex cereal and the seasonings.... Looking back, i shudder at the amount of salt that was on them (and the butter and what not).

Any ideas for a "mild" chex mix or perhaps something just as good (has to be baked :))?

This is the authentic 1960s recipe:

3 tbsp cooking oil

1 tbsp peanut butter

Blend over low heat until blended ( I microwave)

Add: 1tbsp Worchestershire sauce

1/4 teasp garlic salt

1/4 tsp salt

In a 9x13 pan mix:

2 cups wheat Chex

2 cups corn Chex

2 cups rice Chex. ( I do 3 cups each corn & rice)

1/2 can salted peanuts

1 cup pretzels

Mix in the sauce. Bake at 200 F for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes.

You could use unsalted peanuts, low salt Worch. sauce & garlic powder to make it very low salt.

In the US Lea & Perrins is gluten-free.

Thanks for that recipe. What do you use in place of pretzels? The only gluten-free brand that I know about uses msg, so doesn't work for moi.

The only gluten-free pretzels I have on hand right now are Glutino Sesame Pretzel Rings (totally addictive!) and just checking the bag, they don't contain MSG but they do contain soy. I know they also make plain pretzels and pretzel sticks.

I don't have any Snyder's of Hanover gluten-free pretzels on hand but you could pull up their website. I find them to be too hard and crunchy for me.

That's the brand. Unfortunately, they DO contain msg under a Camouflaged name. Can't remember which one they used.

I use pretzels if I have them. Could make it with a little more chex or nuts & no pretzels.

My mom makes these every Christmas and they are always a hit.

Chips:

Ingredients:

1/2 lb butter

1/3 cup Lee and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce

sprinkle of red pepper

1 6 ounce can of mixed nuts

2 cups pecans

2 regular size bags of corn chips

3/4 large bag of pretzels (She eliminates the pretzels altogether to make gluten free)

1 box rice chex cereal

1/2 box corn chex cereal

In 12 quart magnalite roaster, melt butter in pot over low heat. Add worcestershire sauce and red pepper. Add each ingredient in order stirring after each ingredient is added. On low heat, with cover on, simmer for 45 minutes stirring 3-4 times. Uncover chips, place in 350 degree oven and roast until corn chips get crispy (1 - 1 1/2 hours)

I use this recipe: http://busycooks.about.com/od/snackmixrecipes/r/realorigchexmix.htm

But I add gluten-free "cheerios"- I think the Glutino brand is what I used last time. For gluten-free pretzels I used EnerG Wylde brand. They are the only ones I have found that are soy free.

I have not made this since I had to cut out dairy however. Lea and Perrins is gluten-free and SF but I found that the anchovies in in were bothering me. So I have not tried to make Chex mix for a while.

Here are some other "flavors" of Chex mix. Maybe something would work? This is General MIlls website for gluten free.
