Back in the day, we’re talking the late 80’s and most of the 90’s, these crackers were a staple in our household. Our mom would whip these up for any and every party and trust me when I tell you, they were a hit.
You know what they say about Pringles, once you pop, you can’t stop? Yeah, it’s the exact same with these seasoned oyster crackers. They are addicting and once you’ve had one, there’s no turning back so buckle up.
These delicious savory and salty crackers are the perfect snack to put out for holiday party guests – adults and kids alike. Just be ready to give out the recipe because they’ll come asking for it. This year, I am planning on packaging them in cute, little holiday bags, attaching a recipe card and handing them out to neighbors and friends. It’ll be the gift that keeps on giving.
Now let’s quit the chit-chat and get down to making the easiest & tastiest snack there ever was.
2 bags of oyster crackers (10-12 oz bags)
1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon of dill (dried or fresh / I prefer the latter because it offers a fresher, stronger flavor, but either will do.)
1 teaspoon table salt
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon ranch seasoning (optional)*
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Pour oyster crackers in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
Combine garlic powder, dill, table salt, and vegetable oil in a bowl and whisk until completely mixed.
Pour seasoned oil over oyster crackers. Toss and stir the crackers extra gently until evenly coated.
* Have a taste and if desired, add the ranch seasoning.
Pour crackers onto a large baking sheet. Use a rubber spatula to get all of the oil out of the bowl and onto the crackers.
Bake for 15 minutes and stir halfway through.
Allow for crackers to cool before serving or storing in an airtight container.
~Serve and enjoy~
