Quick Cheesy Oyster Cracker Snacks

"This quick and easily made snack is quite addictive. I never seem to make enough when friends visit but they never seem to mind waiting while I make more. It's also good for practicing your "pan flipping" skills. This recipe is made with "popcorn seasoning". Although I used Cheddar cheese powder in this variety, many other flavors are available. I also like Nacho, Parmesan, and Cheddar/Bacon. You can get these and many other flavors from www.SpiceBarn.com."

    This technique makes a great snack with lower fat that other methods. I have now used this for many flavors, I happened to post the picture of the ranch flavor, but have used many of the popcorn seasonings also. I love any snack that I feel good about giving to my family, and this is one of them! Thanks for submitting this awesome pan flip method!
