Toasted Snack Mix

Heres yet another version of the ever-popular Nuts and Bolts - and a very different version, it is! 

Toasted Snack Mix:

4 c. small cheese crackers such as mini Ritz or cheddar Goldfish
4 c. oyster crackers
4 c. thin pretzel sticks
16 oz. (454 g) mixed nuts (about 4 c.)
½ c. butter or margarine
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1-½ tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1-½ tbsp. seasoned salt
½ tsp. powdered mustard
½ tsp. hot sauce

Preheat oven to 275 deg. F. Combine crackers, pretzels, and nuts in large roasting pan. Add butter and garlic to small saucepan over medium-low heat, cooking garlic 3-to 4 min. or until butter starts to spit. Stir in remaining ingredients, allowing to simmer about 2 min. Remove from heat. Strain out and discard garlic. Pour butter mixture evenly over cracker mixture, tossing well to coat.

Divide and spread buttery mixture evenly over two parchment-lined large baking sheets. Bake 30 min., or until toasted, stirring once or twice during baking. Serve warm, if possible. Yields 10 generous snack-size portions.
