5 cups cereal (any combination of bite-size wheat,
rice or corn squares; shredded wheat; round toasted
oat cereal; or crispy corn or rice cereal bites)
1 1/2 cups pretzels or chow mein noodles
1 cup pecans halves or pieces
1/3 cup butter or regular margarine, melted
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine cereals, pretzels or noodles and pecans in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
In a bowl, stir melted butter and remaining ingredients together. Pour over cereal mixture, tossing gently until well coated.
Bake at 325 degrees F for 25 minutes, stirring once or twice. Spread in a large shallow pan or on foil to cool before serving.
