I’ve always made the Hidden Valley Ranch oyster crackers, and I do love those, but tonight I wanted to play with something a bit different.
This recipe is full of spices, and it does pack a punch, but wow, the taste is awesome. These would be perfect for a party or tailgating, or simply as a snack anytime. (original recipe from Guy Fieri).
1/4 cup canola oil
4 tbls. unsalted butter, melted
1 tbls. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. curse-ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried minced onion
1 tsp. parsley leaves
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1 (16-ounce) package oyster crackers
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Combine spices together with oil and melted butter. Toss in oyster crackers and mix to coat.
Place crackers on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray, spreading crackers out into a single layer.
Bake for 25 minutes, moving crackers around gently with a spatula halfway through.
Remove crackers with a spatula. Let cool on a wire rack. When completely cool, store in an airtight container such as a mason jar.
Keeps several weeks in an airtight container.
