Fire Crackers!

Happy almost 4th of July my fellow Americans!  I hope you are celebrating safely, responsibly and abundantly!

I wanted to make sure and get this recipe out to you before the holiday.  The day before.....WINNING!  These are one of our favorites, right alongside a cold beer, or any cold drink but, let's face it, a cold beer, spicy crackers.....yes please.  There are lots of times I need a quick snack for company, or a get together and these are always a quick and easy crowd pleaser

You can adjust the heat to your taste.  They are called "fire crackers" for a reason though!  You are going to think a sparkler went off in your mouth, which will require the cold beer to or drink to put out the flames.  I have you covered, the fire, the water.  I am basically the whole package.

Here we go, make sure to adjust the heat to what you like but the recipe is written as I made it for us!  I use a Cajun spice.  Any one of your choice will work!

PS.  Don't make just one batch, double it up while you have everything out!

9-12 oz bag of oyster crackers
1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
5 T melted butter
1 packet dry ranch seasoning mix
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp parsley flakes

Preheat your oven to 275 degrees F.  You will need a large cookie sheet.  In a large bowl, melt your butter completely.  Add in oil, followed by all of your seasonings.  Mix to combine.  Add in oyster crackers and carefully stir them until they are all completely covered in the seasoning mixture!
Pour on to a cookie sheet and spread out into a single layer.  Bake for 15-25 minutes.  Stir at about 10 minutes and then let it go until they have absorbed the butter/oil/seasoning mixture.  When they are done, remove, stir again, and let sit for 10 minutes.  Pour into a bowl and snack away!  Keep in a Ziploc for freshness!
