Aunt Bernie’s Spicy Crackers! from BEFORE AND EVER SINCE

In the spirit of book-y love and snack addiction, I wanted to round out this week with the recipe for the spicy crackers Aunt Bernie makes in BEFORE AND EVER SINCE.  🙂

Cassidy loves them, Emily loves them, even health crazy Holly loves them.  So here you are–your very own recipe to make them yourself.  EASY peasy and sooooo good.  Enjoy!


(served by Aunt Bernie… good as appetizer or with gumbo…)

1   tsp garlic powder
1   tsp onion powder     
1/2 tsp black pepper
3   tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
1  2/3 cup vegetable or olive oil
2   1-oz pkgs Ranch Dressing mix
1  16oz box Saltine crackers

Place vegetable oil, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, ranch dressing mix, and crushed red pepper flakes in a 2-gallon plastic zip lock bag, seal, and smoosh with hands to thoroughly combine the oil and spices. Place crackers into bag, seal, and turn over and over to cover the crackers with the spice mix. Let the bag sit for about an hour, then turn them again. Repeat several more times until crackers are well-coated with spice mix. The longer they sit in the mix, the better.  Remove crackers and let air dry.  Serve!

Now you can make these for your family…or make them for yourself as a wonderful snack while you curl up and read!  LOL!  Enjoy!
