Jessie’s Bits & Pieces

  • Author: Meagan


Deadly.  One nibble and you-can’t-stop!  Jessie is no longer with us, but Deanna adapted this from her original recipe…she was a favorite of mine and so is this crazily addictive snack.  Lots of ways to make it your own, my only other recommendation is to make it a tradition at a certain time of year – like Christmas – because you’ll find yourself imbibing for breakfast on a regular basis otherwise – enjoy! Share!



1 box (200 g) Cheez-Its (or Goldfish, or whatever other cheesy mini cracker that you adore)

~200 g pretzel sticks

1/2 box (the box size I used was 365 g) Rice Chex (Crispix is tasty too)

1/2 box (the box size I used was 725 g) Shreddies

1 bag (213 g) Bugles

Secret Sauce

1 c. canola oil AND 1 packet (28 g) Hidden Valley Ranch dry mix

1 T. EACH lemon pepper, dried dill AND garlic powder


Preheat the oven to 200 and stir together all of the ingredients in a big roasting pan with high sides.  In a small bowl, whisk together the secret sauce ingredients, drizzle all over the mix and toss well using a large spatula or pancake flipper.

Roast for about 2 hours, taking it out to give it a stir every 20 minutes to half an hour.  Eat straight away or wait until it cools and store it for as long as it lasts in an airtight container.
