Seasoned Oyster Crackers with Old Bay

Perfectly seasoned oyster crackers with Old Bay. So easy, fast and wonderful with a hot bowl of soup. Great as a crunchy snack, too!

Old Bay Seasoned Oyster Crackers

Thanksgiving is over and Christmas recipes are on my brain. Which probably doesn’t make a lot of sense considering this post is about seasoned oyster crackers. Just bear with me :)

I’m hosting Christmas dinner this year and I couldn’t be more excited. I used to host every year but after some life upsets, I haven’t done so for the past two. I’ve missed it, the crazy holiday cooking that takes days to plan and prep, the long day of my house filled with friends and family, laughing and drinking and celebrating. I’m blessed and I know it.

Tomorrow I’m sharing a recipe for Lobster Bisque that I serve with these Old Bay Seasoned Oyster Crackers. I’ll wait to tell you about the bisque itself in tomorrow’s post, just know that it’s a great recipe and a wonderful way to start a holiday meal.

These seasoned oyster crackers will go wonderfully with any type of seafood soup, though – clam chowder will never be the same once you serve these babies with it! I love that they’re fast and easy yet can be a great snack. I basically just took my mom’s Ranch seasoned oyster crackers and created a new recipe using Old Bay.

I really should post the Ranch Oyster Cracker recipe, too, even though I’m sure there are a zillion similar ones out there. But she makes them all the time and they’re such a great snack for all ages. I’m working on a spicy/smoky version although I haven’t gotten the mixture quite right yet. I’ll be sure to let you know when I do! (I did!)

Thanks for sharing! Do they keep long?

Ours are usually gone pretty quickly, but a week in a container sealed really well should keep them just fine.

These look so good! I wonder if there could be a GF version! What a great way to spice up something kind of boring!
