I’ve been making this savory crackers recipe for over 30 years.

I’ll often use these savory crackers on a charcuterie board. The spices and crunch are a perfect compliment to meats and cheeses.

These crackers are also good with some plain, unsalted peanuts mixed in too. It makes for more of a “pub style” mix and is great for entertaining.

Savory Ranch Crackers


  • 1/4 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 packet Ranch seasoning (for dressing or dip, doesn’t matter)
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dried dill
  • 1/4 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
  • 2 cups oyster crackers


Preheat oven to 250 degrees. In a small bowl, add oil and all seasonings. Stir mixture together. Place oyster crackers in a 1 gallon sized bag and pour spice mixture over crackers. Seal the bag and lightly toss until crackers are covered and there is no spice mixture globbed onto the sides of the bag. Spread evenly on cookie sheet and bake for about 20 minutes until slightly golden. Let cool before serving.

Here’s a little tip if you want to kick up the savory in these crackers with a little heat. Add a sprinkle or two of red pepper flakes or a dash or cayenne pepper. I tend to love hot and spicy, and it works with this recipe really well! Just remember to start small with your heat additions so that you don’t go overboard!

I hope you enjoy making, gifting and eating these savory ranch crackers! They’re so simple, but they’re so good!
