I love this time of year, American football season brings an air of excitement of good things to come. Having a son who plays High School football, we look forward to those Friday Night Lights…and the excitement in the air! The boys work so hard all year long, keeping fit, lifting weights, eating right. They have such discipline, commitment & drive. We’re so proud of our son as well as all of his teammates. They have admirable qualities & leadership characteristics that are something to behold both on and off the field.
Buttered O’s are a snack food that I’ve come to associate with football. Whether you’re watching the game on TV or tailgating, this is a tasty addition to game food!
I was introduced to Buttered O’s by my Mother-in-Law, who always puts out a wonderful variety of appetizers and snacks at every occasion. We’re all too happy to nibble away while chatting, playing pool, ping-pong, or watching the game. I’m not actually sure how she makes her O’s, but I just know that they’re delicious!
8 cups toasted O’s cereal
1 cup peanuts
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup melted butter
Bake at 275 F stirring every 15 minutes until liquid has been absorbed and dried, which will take about 45 minutes.
Allow the mix to cool completely before packaging in an airtight container.
You can substitute other non-sweetened cereal or pretzels in place of some of the toasted O’s for a little variety.
A little word of warning, these are addictive, so watch out!
