Ranch Oyster Crackers Tips

Can you bake the oyster crackers after they’re seasoned?

Certainly! Baking the oyster crackers lightly browns them and intensifies flavor. Spread the crackers onto a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in a 250°F oven. Let cool to room temperature before serving.

How long will ranch oyster crackers last?

Though best eaten fresh, you can keep these ranch oyster crackers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

How else can you serve ranch oyster crackers?

These ranch oyster crackers would be delicious scattered on top of butternut squash soup or tomato soup. You could also toss them on top of your favorite salad in lieu of croutons. Don’t forget to include them on your cheese board for your next party!
