We went to a party last weekend and I decided to take an appetizer. A simple meat and cheese tray. With a side of special crackers. And these crackers are indeed special, my friends.
It's one the craziest recipes I've ever seen. I started making these last year around the holidays, and they were so good, and everyone went so crazy over them, that I gave them as Christmas presents.
I'm not kidding.
Forget iPhones/Pads, Tickle-Me Elmos, zhu-zhu pets, silly bands or a Wii. They have nothing on these crackers.
And because you're some of my closest friends, and because I'm in a sharing mood, here it is. Enjoy!
Spicy CRACKer Recipe
1 box saltines (I think multi-grain work best)
1 cup vegetable oil
1 package ranch dressing mix
1 tbsp dill weed
1 tbsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp garlic powder
Open the whole box of crackers and dump them in a 2 gallon zip loc bag (a 1 gallon will be too small at this point) or a very large bowl. Mix oil and remaining ingredients together and pour over crackers, gently tossing to coat. (note...once all crackers are coated you can fit them all in a 1 gallon bag). Continue gently tossing bag or stirring crackers if using a container for about 24 hours. OR...if you can't wait that long....spread crackers on cookie sheets and bake in oven at lowest temperature for about an hour, stirring a couple of times.
