Furikake Chex Mix

Yeah. Make this.

Furikake Chex Mix

Adapted from onolicioushawaii.com

  • Bag of pretzels
  • Bag of bugles
  • Box of rice chex cereal
  • Box of honey comb cereal
  • Bag of Gardetto’s
  • And any other bag of stuff including wheat Chex cereal or Fritos
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup Agave syrup or maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 bottle of Furikake

Preheat oven to 250 degrees

Mix butter, syrup, sugar, veggie oil and soy sauce in pot until sugar is melted.

Mix all dry ingredients but the Furikake in an oven proof baking dish. You might need 2 containers.

Pour sauce evenly over the dry ingredients. And mix well. Then sprinkle the entire bottle of Furikake over and mix gently.

Bake for an hour, tossing every 15 mins.

You just want to bake it till the syrup is dry and makes every piece of furikake cereal crunchy and crisp.

Jalapeño Poppers, Baked

Made these for the 4th of July and am looking for a BBQ event to bring them to so I can side swipe a few between drinks. It’s the perfect “over served” food. Bacon-y, kinda spicy, cheesey. Sooo good. In fact, I bet we could doctor them up to look Halloween-y. Ok. Time for some creativity, ya’ll. Whatchya got? P.S. The mix is damn good on toast under some avocado sliced.

  • 12 jalapeños, half and seeded
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup aged cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 head roasted garlic (optional)
  • 10 stalks of chives, cut into 1/4” lengths
  • 6 sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled

Move rack to middle of oven. Line baking pan with foil. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Make filling by mixing all but 3 TBSP of the crumbled bacon. Cut jalapeños, deseed and demembrane.

Use a spoon to fill the filling into the jalapeño halves. Try to keep them upright (sometimes that requires leaning one up on the other-don’t worry though, they’re ok sharing space).

Cook for 20-25 mins or until bubbly. Sprinkle remaining bacon on top (I actually pressed the bacon into the jalapeños).

It’s like molten lava coming out of the oven. Use all the impulse control power you have to wait 10 mins until trying one. Trust me. Then enjoy!!
