I was spending some quality time with my sister the last few days which was marvelous. On Friday she saw an ad in the paper that had oyster crackers for 69 cents a bag. She asked if I knew how to make “those seasoned oyster cracker things”. I had not made them before but have eaten them and thought it would be a fun snack to make. It was unbelievably easy and ridiculously cheap! It cost about $1 to make a large batch.
1 (1 oz) package ranch dressing mix
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 t dried dill weed (or to your taste)
1/2 t garlic powder (or to your taste)
A few dashes of pepper
1 box or bag oyster crackers
Preheat oven to 250°. In a large mixing bowl, combine first 5 ingredients and mix well. Stir in oyster crackers mix to coat. Pour crackers onto a large cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so. Cool and add to a covered container.
These were such a hit at her house that I made a second batch for her and the family to enjoy over the weekend. It’s a great snack to keep around or take to a holiday party.
