BA: Party Mix
BA Party Mix
Bon Appetit December 2011
4 cups Bugles(original flavor)
3 cups whole wheat sesame pretzel rounds or other small pretzels
2 cups roasted unsalted peanuts
1cup raw shelled pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1 cup store-bought roasted green peas (not wasabi flavor)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
12 large garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon English mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika plus more for sprinkling
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 cups Terra Stick
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add garlic and gently cook to infuse butter, about 5 minutes. Strain into a small bowl, pressing to extract garlic juices. Discard garlic. Stir in Worcestershire, Dijon mustard, mustard powder, salt, paprika, and pepper. Pour over mixture in bowl and toss gently to coat.
Divide mixture between 2 baking sheets and spread in an even layer. Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until dry and toasted, about 1 hour. Sprinkle mixture with a few pinches of paprika. Toss and let cool completely on baking sheets (party mix will become crispy as it cools).
Transfer party mix to a large bowl. Add Terr Stix and toss to mix well.
Do Ahead: Can be made 1 week ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.
