My grandma is the one who originally introduced me to seasoned crackers. She used to make these all the time. You can even pass them out during the holiday season, as a homemade gift idea. Everyone was always asking her for the recipe. 

You could use a traditional Saltine cracker, but I like the shape and size of the Oyster Crackers. You can scoop up a handful and much away or use it as topping on soups. 

This recipe couldn’t be any easier and you don’t even have to warm up the oven. This will be a classic that you make over and over again.

When To Serve These Crackers & What To Serve Them With

I love making these for a cocktail hour, game day or to pass out as gifts. I just have them ready to go in my pantry. Serve them with a nice selection of craft beer and you’ve got a great snack. Personally, I crack a Diet Coke and munch on them in the afternoons.

How To Make This Spicy Oyster Crackers Recipe

Mix the oil with spices and pour over the crackers. You can cut the spice in half, to one tablespoon, if you like it less spicy. It’s personal preference. Mix around in the bag until all the oil is absorbed. I shake it, let it sit, shake again and repeat the process until absorbed.

The crackers are even more delicious the next day. So if you’re having an event, make them the day prior and they’ll be ready to go. Store leftovers in an air-tight container too. Enjoy!
