Karen's Oyster Crackers

YUM... try these delicious snack crackers!


  • 3 Bags of oyster crackers
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil or other neutral taste oil like safflower or canola
  • 1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix (Regular or Spicy)
  • Optional: Dill weed, parsley flakes, Italian Seasoning, cayenne, Everything Bagel Seasoning... be careful adding seasoning that contains salt as the crackers and Ranch mix are already salty


  • Use a very large bowl (each bag of crackers is 3.5 cups so find your largest)
  • Pour all of the crackers in the bowl
  • Start adding a third of the oil and sprinkling on the Ranch mix.
  • Stir the bowl well, but gently
  • Alternate between adding the oil and Ranch mix. You will also be adding any add-ins at this time too.
  • Keep adding oil, Ranch mix and add-ins and stirring until all have been incorporated
  • Store in sealed plastic container or 1 gallon Zip-lock bag
  • These are best if made a day or so ahead of time
  • Stir or shack the crackers while they're resting
