Oyster Crackers - You can find these in the cracker aisle of most grocery stores. For some reason, our local grocery store always puts them on the highest shelf.
Vegetable Oil - you can use any neutral flavored oil in this recipe. Olive oil will add a bit of extra flavor to these seasoned oyster crackers.
Baking Sheet - I like using a baking sheet with sides so I don't accidentally slide all of the oyster crackers into the bottom of the stove.
Parchment Paper - Parchment paper makes it easy to transfer the cooked spicy oyster crackers to a container.
I have seen a few recipes floating around that do not bake the oyster crackers with the spices. They are made in a Ziploc bag and then packaged in a container. I like to bake the oyster crackers so the flavors bake in and really attach to the crackers.
Don't forget to preheat the oven
Make sure to cool before serving! You don't want to burn your tongue.
These Spicy Oyster Crackers make a great DIY Gift. You can put them in a large mason jar with a ribbon or cute decorative container.
Shake the baking dish back and forth a few times gently to spread the oyster crackers out.
Plan time for the oyster crackers to cool for at least an hour.
Store these spicy ranch oyster crackers in an air-tight container. We keep them in a Ziploc bag on the counter.
