My mother-in-law is the only person I’ve ever known to make these savory little crackers. Her original recipe called for Wesson oil, but I’ve substituted light olive oil. And I’ve made my own Ranch Dressing Mix instead of using the package of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix to avoid any MSG. These little crackers are perfect over chili or your favorite soup!
- 2 10oz Packages Oyster Crackers
- 1 Cup Light Olive Oil
- 4 Tablespoons home made Ranch Dressing Mix, or 1 package Hidden Valley Ranch Mix
- 1- 2 teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
Pour crackers into a large dutch oven or extra large mixing bowl. Drizzle olive oil over crackers. Sprinkle Ranch Dressing Mix and Red Pepper Flakes over crackers and gently stir to mix well. Let crackers set for about 30 minutes. Every 30 minutes, give mixture a gentle stir. Continue this process until oil is well absorbed. Store in air tight container until ready to serve.
