My current list of bookmarked/starred/printed/pinned/saved/saved recipes is long. I’ve found so many delicious sounding/looking recipes lately – it is fantastic! But it also can be a bit overwhelming to choose – well, that is if I don’t want to eat dessert for every meal – for some reason most of those recipes are generally the most appealing. When it comes time to choose a recipe to make, I look at a few general things: Do I have the ingredients on hand? Is it something that I will enjoy? Will it be easy to make?
This recipe for Ranch Oyster Crackers fits all of those requirements. I happened to have just bought oyster crackers at the grocery store, and all of the other ingredients are things that I pretty much always have on hand. I wasn’t entirely sure what I would use them for, but they seemed so easy – and were from one of my favorite blogs – so I decided to give them a shot. You can really never go wrong with a recipe from Mama Pea. You can find the recipe here. (Unfortunately the recipe page is no longer available )
As suspected, they were incredibly easy to make.
The husband actually was first to try them. He warned me that I may not like them – apparently I overdid it a bit on the garlic. I was hesitant to try them after that, but I did. They were very garlicky, but good! They were pretty strong flavored for me to eat a lot at a time but I did like them.
He actually ended up putting some of them in tomato soup, which he said was good. I can imagine that they would add a delicious garlic flavor to canned tomato soup.
Ease: A+, really nothing hard at all.
Taste: A, They were definitely quite garlicky tasting, but I don’t know that that is necessarily a bad thing.
Would I Make Them Again? I’m not sure. Although they were very easy, I’m more likely to make them to go with soup rather than making them just to keep around as a snack.
