1 1/2 cups
crushed red pepper flakes
1 (1 ounce) packet
ranch dressing mix
1 (16 ounce) package
Whole Wheat Saltine Crackers
Instead of using saltines, I used three packages of oyster crackers. I also used a homemade dry ranch seasoning mix. I chose to bake my crackers at 250* for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes only because I was worried they'd turn out soggy. These are so. freaking. good. GREAT movie night snack.
Really? You want me to pour oil over crackers??? They won't get soggy??? Wow, was I ever surprised that these didn't turn to mush! :)
I made half a recipe, since it's just me and hubby, and made it exactly as written. These whip together really quickly and are so easy. A nice blend of flavors, which I didn't find too spicy at all. They were quite salty though. I'm not sure I'd make these again, but if I do, I'll probably just use half the ranch dressing packet to cut down on the salt and/or use unsalted crackers.
These were simply fantastic! (And people eat the mess out of them too!) I really expected them to be soggy, but they really weren't! I was very impressed. Thanks for sharing!!!
I had some of these at a party for my stepmother and they deserve their strong reputation. The crackers won't get soggy whatsoever (it's witchcraft), but they're intensely flavorful and have a bit of a kick to them, which is of course adjustable. Two things: the ranch dressing is full of sodium, so opt for reduced or zero sodium crackers. Two, they can be a bit greasy to handle, so if you're serving them by themselves, you might want to have tongs and plenty of napkins beside them so nobody gets greasy ranch hands (ha! I said ranch hands!). Oyster crackers would be a better choice for soups. I recommend this recipe!
Have made this recipe several times, deleting the hot spices when I made for a retirement home. This is absolutely delicious!!!
These crackers are so easy to make, and absolutely delicious! In addition to Saltines, we opted to try this recipe on Ritz and Club crackers as well. The Club crackers were by far the best... our guests were fighting over them! Ha! Also, we sprinkled some parmesan cheese into the bag to coat the crackers after they were done "marinating"... perfection!
I've been making these for several years because they're such a great hit! My son-in-law has asked me to send some to Afghanistan because he "misses them!"
These are fantastic! Didn't have whole wheat crackers on hand, but they turned out great anyway.
Suggestion: I took these to work, still in the ziplock bag. NOT the best presentation. No one wanted to even try them at first, but after they did they went like hotcakes.
I'd move them to a different package for presentation.
Again, these are fantastic.
