KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Whether you are tailgating at Neyland, or keeping cool in the comfort of your home, football is about more than Xs and Os – it’s also about the food! Game day snacks are most certainly part of the experience no matter your location.
We are sharing a couple of snacks featuring Dale’s Seasoning that are easy to make ahead, and completely portable for wherever your game day viewing takes you.
Dale’s Snack Mix
3 cups corn cereal
3 cups rice cereal
3 cups wheat cereal
2 cups pretzels
2 cups shoestring potatoes
1 cup mixed nuts
6 Tbsp butter, melted
¼ cup Dale’s Seasoning
¼ cup hot sauce
Preheat oven to 250°.
Mix together cereal, pretzels, potatoes, and nuts in large bowl. Use the hugest bowl you can find, and even better if it has a lid!
Combine melted butter, Dale’s, and hot sauce and stir to incorporate. Pour butter mixture evenly over the snack mix. Cover bowl and shake to fully combine. Use a large plastic bag for shaking if needed.
Pour out party mix on large sheet tray. Bake at 250° for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
