Who doesn’t love Ranch-flavored snacks? These Ranch Oyster Crackers are made with minimal ingredients, so they’re quick and easy.
When I was little, my mom would make these crackers around the Holidays, put them into jars, add a ribbon or bow, and give them to friends/neighbors. She would include them with her goodie plates from Holiday baking, so everyone always enjoyed all the treats!
As I got older and became a mom of my own, I took on the tradition of Holiday baking and creating goodie tins for the neighbors. The only difference, I completely had forgotten about those tasty crackers, therefore, never made them until recently!
One afternoon, as I was browsing through my social media, I came across a post for Cajun seasoned oyster crackers. The recipe reminded me of the Ranch version I grew up enjoying and I immediately pulled out the recipe I had.
Needing only 5 ingredients, I was able to have a batch prepared in no time!
Crunchy ranch seasoned oyster crackers coated in dill and garlic – a super easy snack mix!
My original plan was to make them as gifts for others, however, they have been such a huge hit with my kids and husband, it’s hard to keep them in the house for longer than a day or two!
My kids enjoy these for snacks, with lunches, paired with tuna, and even in their soups/chili!
To change things up a bit and add a slight kick to these, I sprinkled a bit of Cajun seasoning on top of the crackers prior to baking in the oven. Not only did it add some great flavor, but it also gave these a slight kick without becoming “spicy”. My kids haven’t mentioned anything about “spice”, so don’t be afraid to add a little Cajun seasoning to yours as well!
