No-Soup-Necessary Oyster Crackers

By Saratpierce
This is kind of an odd little recipe, and one I never would have thought to make if it weren't for the fact that I grew up with my grandmother having a stash of these ready for me every time I came to visit.
When it comes to savory and salty snacks, there is plenty to choose from on grocery store shelves that will more than satisfy your taste buds. But some of the more "delicious" snacks can be pricey and a bit mysterious in terms of their ingredients. That's why I like to make my own salty snacks with simple oyster crackers and a few spices. 
Most people use oyster crackers as additions to soup so it's a little out of the ordinary to find a recipe where they are the star of the show. 
Here are the basic necessities:
No-Soup-Necessary Oyster Crackers
  • Ranch dressing mix
  • Garlic salt
  • Dill weed
  • Olive oil
  • Oyster crackers
The recipe is for 2, 11oz. bags/boxes of crackers but I hardly find 11oz. any more so it's easy to add or subtract spices based on how much you are wanting to make. In the end it's all about taste so most of these measurements you can tweak as you please.

No-Soup-Necessary Oyster Crackers

In a large bowl, pour 3/4 cup oil over the crackers and toss with a large spoon. Make sure the oil coats all the crackers.
No-Soup-Necessary Oyster Crackers
Add one packet of ranch dressing mix, 1 teaspoon of dill weed and 1 teaspoon of garlic salt. Again, more crackers, more seasoning... it's up to you!
No-Soup-Necessary Oyster Crackers
Toss the seasoning with the crackers to make sure it's evenly coated.

Pour the crackers back in the bag it came in.
No-Soup-Necessary Oyster Crackers
Tada! Now you have a tasty snack with natural ingredients you can enjoy with or without the accompaniment of soup!
No-Soup-Necessary Oyster CrackersUntil next time...What's your favorite salty/savory snack? Do you prefer to make your own or stick with store bought bites?
