Bacon Snack Mix Video Transcript

Hi, Kristy in the Rada kitchen. Today I’m making a recipe out of our Party Snacks to Share recipe book. Bacon’s the big hit right now, so I’m going to make a maple bacon party mix. You make it in the microwave so it’s a no-bake recipe. It’s really simple. It has bacon in it so it has to be good! Let’s get started.

You’ll need about 6 strips of cooked bacon. I’m going to put it in this bowl because we’re going to want to chop it into little pieces. I’m going to take this Rada Food Chopper. It’s going to be a lot easier if your bacon is cooked really crisp.

Alright, once we have all this bacon chopped, we’re just going to set it aside. You’ll want to put it in a bowl because we’re going to add some other ingredients. And it’s kind of neat that we’re doing a bacon thing. Everything at Rada is made in Iowa. Our plant is in Waverly, Iowa. And, of course, Iowa is a big pork producer. We like to promote our own products as well as our Rada products. Our 100% Iowa made products are great.

Alright, in another bowl we’re going to take 2 cups of a square corn cereal and 2 cups of a rice square cereal, and 2 cups of wheat cereal. To that we’re going to add a cup of dry roasted peanuts. And then about ¼ to ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Mix that together.

Now, get back your bacon bowl. To that we’re going to add ¼ cup melted butter. And then ¼ cup pure maple syrup. If you’ve never tried pure maple syrup, you’re really missing out. We do produce maple syrup in Iowa, too, so we should call this the Iowa Mix. And then we’re just going to mix these together. Just combine the butter and the syrup. Kind of coat that bacon, too. Kind of make it like a candy bacon. Now we’re just going to pour this over our cereal mix.

Stir it well. You just want to get all that cereal nicely coated. This is a nice, sturdy Rada Cook’s Spoon. It’s stainless steel so we’re not going to bend it.

Now we’re going to microwave this for 3 minutes at 1 minute intervals. I’m going to put it in for a minute, take it out, and stir. I’ll do that 3 times. So put this on high for a minute. After a minute, we’re just going to stir it and do that 2 more times.

Alright, it’s been in for 3 1 minute intervals. To this we’re going to add a teaspoon to a teaspoon and a half of sea salt. You want to have some wax paper ready because we’re going to cool it on that and mix that salt in.

Just spread it out and let it cool. Once that’s cool it’s ready to serve. That’s one of the recipes in our Party Snacks to Share recipe book.
