Seasoned Crackers

Posted by Donna:

I've been teaching piano ever since I retired from teaching. One of the students brought me these treats at Halloween. They were so good. She told me how she made them--I think this is basically what she said. They were so good.

Seasoned Crackers

1 1/3 cup canola
1 Packet dry ranch dressing mix
4 sleeves crackers
(Of course, this can be adjusted for the amount to be made.)

**1 T. each of red pepper flakes and cayenne can also be added for more spice. I'm sure you can adjust this and do any kind of seasonings that you prefer.

I've read where some people mix all the ingredients together first, then add the crackers to coat. I can't remember which way my student said she and her family did theirs--just the oil on the crackers first, then dry ingredients or mixed.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 - 15 minutes.
Store in an air-tight container.

I haven't made these yet, but I want to ask about spraying the crackers with canola--then coating the crackers with the seasoning. I think that would work also. I can see me making a big mess the other way.

I've read where some people use these crackers in place of chips to dip in various dips. It sounds really good. Pin It Now!

I make these regularly. I put them in an airtight container that holds the crackers upright in a single layer and pour the oil/ranch/pepper mixture over it. Turning it several times a day. I have never baked them. The oil is absorbed and they crackers are still crisp somehow. The flavor is great. Crumble them over salads, crush and used in with breading for chicken and just munch on them.

Not sure if the canola spray would work...let us know if you try it. :)
