Seasoned Oyster Crackers

The season of celebration has been flying by, but with less than a week to go until Christmas, things aren't ready to slow down yet.  Work parties, church parties, friends' parties, family gatherings, Christmas Eve celebrations, and we can't forget about New Years! It seems that as soon as we clean up the kitchen from one holiday mess, its time to prepare a dish for the next event on the calendar.  Quite frankly, we are getting tired and we're sure you are too!  So if you are looking for a holiday munchy for your next get-together and don't have the time, energy, or motivation to lug out your Kitchen Aid mixer or reload your dishwasher again, The Spatularettes have the recipe for you!  These seasoned oyster crackers are simple, delicious, and addictive.  They store well in a sealed container for days, so make them ahead of time, pack them up, and grab them as you run out the door to your next holiday party!

-2 9 oz packages of oyster crackers
-1 cup oil (we used canola)
-1 tsp dill week
-1 tsp garlic salt
-1 tsp black pepper
-1 package of Hidden Valley ranch mix

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Combine all ingredients except for oyster crackers in a large bowl and mix until well combine.  Add oyster crackers and toss gently until coated.  Transfer seasoned crackers into a 9x13 baking dish.  Bake for 1 hour, stirring crackers every 15 minutes.  See what we mean?  Easy and mess free!

Tip from The Spatularettes: After snacking on these, you might want to pop a breath mint before chatting with your favorite Spatular ;)
