Grillside Gorp

Bring out cold drinks and big bowls of this snack when the gang gathers around the grill waiting for the burgers to get done.

8 cups square cereal, preferably three or four different flavors (not sweetened)
2 cups garlic croutons
3 cups smoked almonds
1/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon each smoked paprika, black pepper
1 teaspoon each onion salt, garlic salt

    Heat the oven to 250 degrees. Put cereal, croutons and almonds in two baking pans or rimmed cookie sheets. In a microwaveable cup stir smoked paprika and black pepper into the oil and heat 30 seconds or until warm. Drizzle over cereal mixture, mixing gently as you go.  Bake 10 minutes, mix and bake 5 minutes more. Cool, sprinkle with onion and garlic salt and mix again. 

    Serve in bowls or package the mix in one-cup portions in snack bags for the hiking trail. Makes 13 cups.
