If I am serving the seasoned crackers immediately I like to sprinkle them with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a little chopped fresh parsley for an extra special touch.

If packaging them up to gift, simply allow them to cool completely before packing in an airtight container.

Tips and variations

  • if you don’t have ranch seasoning on hand you can make homemade ranch seasoning to substitute
  • Spice it up: add in ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper or 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Sweet version: omit olive oil and add ¼ cup granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon instead of the ranch and spices
  • Mexican style: use taco seasoning in place of ranch seasoning and omit the dill
  • Unbaked: some recipes don’t bake the crackers but I recommend not skipping the baking, it really crisps up the crackers and all that flavor!
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 5 days
