Ingredients

  • 1 bag oyster crackers
  • 1 bag parmesan Goldfish
  • 1 pack dry mix Italian Salad Dressing Mix
  • 1 tbsp red chili pepper flakes more or less to taste
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup fresh snipped dill or dried (2 tbsp) (Note: if using dried dill, use about 2 tbsp and sprinkle on after cooking)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil, canola oil, vegetable oil

Instructions

  • STEP ONE - mix seasonings, fresh dill, and olive oil together, make sure all the seasonings are mixed and not clumpy
  • STEP TWO - place oyster crackers and goldfish in a big bowl, mix up. Pour oil-seasoning mix over crackers, gently stir thoroughly (about 10 minutes) until crackers are evenly covered.
  • STEP THREE - place oil-cracker mix in a gallon size zip lock bag or large container with a lid that seals
  • STEP FOUR - let "marinade" for a couple of hours, flipping the sack every 20-30 mins or so
  • STEP FIVE - preheat oven to 215 degrees
  • STEP SIX - place mixture on a large cookie sheet, roasting pan, or a deep cast iron skillet
  • STEP SEVEN - cook for about an hour stirring every 15 minutes.
  • STEP EIGHT - let them cool and then serve or store them in plastic bags or covered container. Enjoy!!!

Notes

Instead of baking and stirring for an hour...let them set in the ziplock bag overnight. You will need to turn the bag over about every hour or so to ensure the least amount of oil sediment. You could also do smaller portions in the Air Fryer...they're really great this way!
You can easily skip mixing these mini crackers in a bowl and go directly to the plastic ziplock gallon bag step.
Store these goodies in an airtight container for weeks. In my opinion, the longer they set the better they taste. But remember to gently shake the storage container before serving.
