This recipe was o.k. I thought mine turned out a little bland, and I used all of the "optional" ingredients except the garlic powder. If you use garlic salt in place of garlic powder I am certain that they will turn out too salty as someone else mentioned. In addition - if you use a standard box (15 oz.) of oyster crackers you will probably need to increase the oil. My son loves these.. so I will continue to experiment with the recipe. Read More

Love these! This recipe is my favorite because only 1/4 c. oil is used vs. as much as 1 c. in other recipes. Last time I made them I was out of the ranch dressing mix, so I just used the spices and added some seasoned salt and pepper. They were great that way too! Read More

Wow, how have I never made these before?! Such a simple party staple. I followed the directions, thought I do always sub canola for veggie and I chose to leave out the optional lemon pepper for personal preference. I used the new HVR spicy ranch packet and it has a nice little kick. FYI-5C of crackers is one standard size bag. Read More

Easy and delicious. Omitted the dill weed and lemon pepper and added 1/4 tsp cajun seasoning. Shook it up in a ziploc and poured it onto a foiled lined sheet. Baked for 16 minutes and the crispiness is perfect! Read More

I have been making these crackers for sometime and I love them. Especially around the holidays. Their savoriness is a nice change from all of the sweet stuff that is out around Christmastime. Read More

To a previous reviewer - When you read the recipe and nutritionional information you must have realized that it was going to be very salty! AllRecipes estimation - Amount Per Serving - Calories: 275; Total Fat: 14.1g; Cholesterol: 0mg; Sodium: 1116mg; Total Carbs: 32.4g; Dietary Fiber: 1.4g; Protein: 3.8g My only suggestion is to use only half the package of ranch dressing mix.

these are very good. made as the recipe stated although i did make my own dry ranch mix with a recipe from recipezaar bc i didn't have ranch seasoning. didn't have any issues with greasiness. the flavor is very strong so you could reduce mix part by half if you don't like strong flavored crackers but i do and it was perfect for me. thanks for the recipe! bf and i both like them.

These are delicious and sooo easy! I used twice the amount of oyster crackers (1 whole box) and substituted cajun seasoning mix for the lemon pepper. This cut the saltiness and added a little spicy kick. Yum! Read More
