We watch almost every race there is on Memorial Day Weekend – Formula 1, Formula 2, Indy 500, and Nascar 600 – and I was looking for a quick and easy snack to take to a race-watching party. I’ve made these Ranch Oyster Crackers in the past and they’re always gobbled up really quickly. These crackers are crunchy, salty and tangy and perfect for a grab-me party snack.
My friend was dipping them in a bacon sour cream dip and loving them! You could use different seasonings, too, for a change, like a packet of taco seasoning or dry Italian dressing in place of the ranch flavor. Watch out, though. They’re addictive!
****Crunchy, salty and tangy oyster cracker snack. Easy to throw together and a party favorite!
- 1 pkg dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
- 1/4 C canola or vegetable oil
- 1 bag (9 oz) unsalted oyster crackers
- 1/4 tsp garlic salt
Preheat the oven to 250°. In a small bowl, stir together the ranch dressing and oil. Put the oyster crackers in a large plastic ziplock bag and pour the dressing mix over the crackers. Seal and shake the bag until all crackers are lightly coated.
Put parchment paper or aluminum foil on a baking sheet and spread out coated crackers evenly into one layer. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake the crackers for 10 minutes, then stir lightly. Bake another 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on the pan. Store in a tightly sealed container.
