Ranch seasoned oyster crackers are one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Super salty, crunchy, carb-y ... oh la la. Yes, please.
Although I don't think I ever had these as a child, as a young adult they popped up frequently. Ranch flavored oyster crackers are perfect for taking on road trips, the boat, on the beach, and anywhere else you need a little crunchy snack that can live sans refrigeration ranch oyster crackers.
How to make ranch oyster crackers
A lot of people bake these, but I prefer a no bake method. Not sure why I get these thoughts in my mind, but heating up the oven for these just feels ... excessive? Excessive of what? I am not sure.
So without the oven, I simply add a liquid fat like butter or oil and toss the crackers in it. Then sprinkle the seasoning on top and toss until all the crackers are covered.
If you want to make Spicy Ranch Crackers, add a little cayenne and red pepper flakes!
