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.
- 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
- 1⁄4 cup red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder
- 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese (I used Kraft)
Directions See How It's Made
- In a 2.5 gallon Ziploc bag, place all 4 sleeves of the Saltines.
- Blend the oil and remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
- Pour this mixture over the Saltines and shake well until the crackers are coated.
- Remove the crackers from the bag and place them in single layers on a cookie sheet (this will take several batches).
- Bake for 5 minutes at 200 degrees.
- Remove from oven and take the crackers from the tray and place them on paper towels to cool.
- Cool completely, then place in an airtight container for storage.
