I'll be honest, I only really remember eating saltines in one of three ways: Plain and boring when an upset stomach came around, crushed up in tomato soup, or in some milky-sugary-crackery confection my mother made when I was little. Saltines always played a supporting role in my diet, but were never nominated for any awards. Well, get ready to switch things up and give those crackers the leading role with Savory Saltine Seasoning!
Savory Saltine Seasoning is a seasoning packet with one intention: to turn boring into BAZINGA! No baking, cooking, or real preparation involved, this is all you really need to make fantastic-tasting party crackers:
|(Can you tell where we shop often?)|
1 packet of Savory Saltine Seasoning, 1 box plain saltine crackers, 1 3/4 cup canola (or vegetable) oil and a plastic gallon-sized bag. That's it! Here's the lowdown:
1. Pour oil and seasoning packet into the gallon bag. Mush together well to combine.
2. Add 4 tubes of saltine crackers to bag. Fill bag with air and seal.
3. Toss the bag for a few minutes every 15 minutes or so to evenly coat the crackers in the seasony-goodness.
4. Once coated, let the bag of crackers sit in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. (Overnight is suggested)
5. Pour crackers into a dish and enjoy!
The crackers come out completely transformed from their former selves. Now golden brown/orangey in color, the new "Stars of the show" have a zesty, slightly spicy, definitely savory flavor. For a few days after I made them I was the only one who would eat them. Mark said they looked weird, and Jace is going through a picky phase, so I just went along munching. Jace had a few a day or so later and LOVED them. About a week after making them Mark decided to try one and was hooked! Even after a week out in the open air, the crackers had not gone stale. If anything I think they became more flavorful than before. Needless to say, between my two boys the crackers didn't last to see the next sunrise. Yeah, they really are that good.
If saltines don't strike your fancy, not to worry. You can apply this same zesty flavoring to meats, hamburgers, fajitas, and even make dips for "other" crackers. Don't worry, this seasoning plays well with others.
