Hidden Valley Ranch Oyster Snack Crackers

These have been all over Pinterest, and I've been wanting to make them.  I recently had a chance to taste them at work, and they are so good!  They're pretty addictive, too.  There is some leeway in the amount of seasonings, but I will post the amounts I used.  Most recipes call for garlic powder but I don't really like garlic, though I can tolerate it in small doses if it is in garlic salt.  Some recipes call for the addition of lemon-pepper - I think I will try adding some of that, next time.


1 (16-oz) bag oyster crackers 
1 (1-oz) packet Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing Mix (dry mix)
1/4 cup Canola or Vegetable oil
1 tsp dill weed
3/8 tsp garlic salt

Pour the crackers into a large bowl.  Drizzle on the canola oil and stir the crackers to evenly coat.  You might think it won't be enough oil to coat all the crackers, but it is.  Sprinkle on the Ranch dressing mix, the dill weed and garlic salt.  Stir again to evenly coat.  Spread on a rimmed cookie sheet and bake 250° for 15 - 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool.  Store in a tightly covered container.
