Garlic-Dill Crackers

If I had to choose my favorite spice it would come down to garlic and dill. You can imagine how giddy I was when I came across this recipe. Oyster crackers are coated with a vegetable oil spice mixture and then baked until dry.

These crackers on their own are delicious and flavorful. When I added these crackers to my tomato soup for lunch it took an ordinary bowl of soup to a whole new level!

MyRecipes.com and Cooking Light, July 1996
Makes 4 1/2 cups (Serving size = 1/4 cup)

Stars of the Show:
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dry ranch dressing mix
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp lemon pepper
  • 1 (11 oz) package oyster crackers (about 4 1/2 cups)
And Action:

Preheat oven to 175°.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl and stir well. Add the oyster crackers and toss to coat. Spoon mixture onto a baking sheet.

Bake at 175° for 30 minutes stirring frequently. I stirred my batch every 10 minutes. Cool completely and then store in an airtight container. Add to soups, salads, or grab a handful.
