And if you’re looking to satisfy your pumpkin fixnow…I’m suggesting thiscream cheese swirled pumpkin bread,这些pumpkin coffee cake muffins。If you’re looking for something more savory, try thesepumpkin and pesto cheese stuffed shells。Yes, I love a good pumpkin recipe…and I LOVE fall. Sorry, I’m beyond cheesy and just way too excited.

Anyway, on to today’s recipe. It’s not pumpkin, but it sure is fun and delicious.

I’m switching it up today and sharing a snack/appetizer/highly addicting crunchy cracker mix that you will not be able to stop eating. That’s overly dramatic, but also 100% the truth. This salty, cheesy mix is good. Oh so good.

OK, taking it back down a notch. In all seriousness, this is such a different kind of recipe for me, but also one of my favorites. It’s not classy, and nowhere near sophisticated. Instead, it’s just fun finger food that everyone will enjoy. I believe I’ve had this snack mix idea on my running list of recipes since early summer. But I knew this recipe needed to be saved for the fall, once both football and school had started back-up.

To me, this mix just screams Sunday game day eats, or happy after school snacking. It’s fun, it’s so easy, and trust me, everyone will be asking for another batch.

The details.


Let’s talk about the crackers. I’m using a mix of pretzels, Cheez-Its, and Goldfish. Now, I will not lie, I don’t tend to use things like store-bought cheese crackers in recipes. But sometimes they have their time and place. My advice…live a little…and then maybe eat asalad晚餐。


So that’s the base.


Now, that seasoning…


I love everything bagel spice and I love ranch dressing. The sound of the two together has always been a combination that has intrigued me. But until today I’d never put the two together.

I took homemade everything bagel spice and mixed it together with homemade ranch seasoning. This is KEY. It’s a blend of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, parsley, dill, garlic, onion, and chives. Seems so simple, but I really cannot tell you how good this blend is when mixed with this snack mix.

I like to think of this as my favoriteChristmas Eve Chex Mix那but with a twist. It’s not that it’s better per se, just completely different…and still so delicious.

它是由最好的调味料混合,加上addition of cheese crackers, and minus all the other “stuff” that’s sometimes added to Chex mix (you know, the stuff you pick around). No picking around here!


Serve this salty, cheesy snack mix up…

On game-day, at gatherings with friends, and even looking ahead at upcoming holiday gatherings. We might be entertaining in smaller groups this year, but we still need all the snacks!


无论是游戏日零食(Hello Monday /星期四/星期日/星期日夜间足球)还是假期派对,这即将成为您的新进入。即使是我的兄弟同意......这个混合很漂亮。和额外的奖金?它最容易扔在一起。另外,我通常会在我的食品室内藏起来的所有成分。
