We got hooked on making crackers for party's & get togethers last year at Christmas, we started out buying the seasoning online but it was almost 7 bucks for a package of this stuff after shipping & it is only for four sleeves of crackers. So I decided to come up with my own. Every where I take these, they get devoured, we make up a batch about every two weeks & keep em in a plastic container on the counter to munch on through the week. These are great in the boat or deer stand too.Things you need:
2 1/2 Gallon Ziploc bags
Large Mixing bowl
4 Sleeves of crackers (Any Brand will do but I like the Nabisco Premium saltines)Seasoning Ingredients:
1 1/2 Cups Canola Oil
3 Tbsp Ranch Dressing mix (I buy the big shaker at wal mart)
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp Onion Powder
1 Tsp Crushed Red Pepper (like at Pizza restaraunts)
1 Tsp Black Pepper
Just a pinch of Ground Red Pepper (I have a little measuring spoon that says "pinch" but somewhere close to 1/4 Tsp is good)
Open up Ziploc bag & place in large mixing bowl to help hold it up, add all ingredients (no crackers yet) & mix up real good in Bag.
Place the bag back in the bowl & cut the Crackers open so they will be easy to dump in the bag quickly.
Dump all four sleeves of Crackers in & zip up the bag trying to catch as much air in it as possible. I like to take them straight to the kitchen table at this point & lay them down & just start gently flipping & shaking the bag side to side.
Let them sit for 5-10 minutes & shake / flip bag again, I do this several times (until I don't see liquid on the bottom when I flip them), I usually let them stay in the bag overnight but you need to at least leave them for 4 hrs or so.
