Saltine Snackers

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sherrybeth

Had a "saltine" similar to this one over the weekend at a Home Interior/BHG party. I had never had them before and was pleasantly surprised (Thanks Mrs. Monte!). Well, everyone knows that I can't leave a recipe alone, so I came home and mixed up a box of my own. You can mix and match your seasonings to suit your taste. These are great for a party or just to keep on hand for snacking!

These were really good, but I baked them for about 40 minutes stirring every 10-15 minutes. We made them into "crackwiches" with summer sausage and sliced cheese. I made them for a teacher potluck using 3 bags of oyster crackers and baking for 40 minutes. I may try these with low sodium Triscuts next time. Thank you, I had many teachers asking for the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (1 lb) box saltine crackers (I used multi-grain for this recipe)
  • 1 cup oil (vegetable, canola or pecan)
  • 1 (1 ounce) package dry ranch dressing mix
  • 14 cup red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese (I used Kraft)

Directions

  1. In a 2.5 gallon Ziploc bag, place all 4 sleeves of the Saltines.
  2. Blend the oil and remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. Pour this mixture over the Saltines and shake well until the crackers are coated.
  4. Remove the crackers from the bag and place them in single layers on a cookie sheet (this will take several batches).
  5. Bake for 5 minutes at 200 degrees.
  6. Remove from oven and take the crackers from the tray and place them on paper towels to cool.
  7. Cool completely, then place in an airtight container for storage.
