Oyster Snacks

(This recipe was originally posted in conjunction with August's theme, Snacks from Scratch.)

These little bites of deliciousness take only a few minutes to prepare, and are a healthy(ier) substitute for potato chips.  You can also use them as salad croutons, or in soup.  (I'm thinking they would really amp up the flavor of a bowl of tomato soup!)  Oh, and they give you really great breath!

24 oz plain oyster crackers (2 - 12 oz bags)
1 envelope dry Ranch dressing/dip mix
3/4 tsp dill weed
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 C canola OR olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place oyster crackers in a large bowl and set aside.  Wisk together remaining ingredients with a fork.  Wisk quickly for 1 minute.  Pour oil mixture over crackers.  Seal bowl and shake/toss carefully or until all crackers are coated.  Pour into a jelly roll pan.  If any oil mixture remains in the bowl, use a rubber spatula to scrap it out and pour it over the crackers.  Bake, uncovered, 15-20 minutes (or until all oil is absorbed), stirring every 5 minutes.  Cool and store in an airtight container.

Options and Tips:
None!  These are just so easy!

This recipe can be found on page 5 of Hull PRCS' Bountiful Blessings cookbook.


  1. Lisa,

    I can't believe you posted this recipe! Last month I realized I had a bag of oyster crackers getting near the best by date. I wondered if I could spice them up a bit, so I looked on-line and found a delicious recipe using ingredients I had on hand. Upon closer inspection, I also noticed the bag had a recipe for a sweet version.

    Anyway, the crazy thing is that I was going to write you about it and see if you were up for me writing a guest post for your snack month. But you had just left (camping, I think) and I didn't want to bother you. And then I forgot!

    I can still send you those other 2 recipes if you're interested.
