Sriracha Oyster Cracker Bites

After making (and devouring) a big batch of my Sriracharitos (Sriracha-flavored tortilla chips) the other day, I still had Sriracha snacks on the brain. I noticed a bag of oyster crackers in the pantry, so the next step was pretty obvious: Sriracha oyster cracker bites. Easy to make, and addicting as anything you can imagine. A great crunch and of course, a little Sriracha kick. Don’t like a lot of heat? Just cut back on the amount of spice mix. But, I think more is definitely better on these snacks.

Crab Boil Popcorn

I’m a huge fan of crab boil seasoning, and in particular, Old Bay. I use it in a lot things, not just crab boils. As a steak rub. Or on popcorn! Crab boil popcorn is a great snack. It combines fresh popped popcorn, crunchy oyster crackers, and of course, Old Bay seasoning. The result is perfectly-seasoned and perfectly yummy and I ate a whole lot of it!

Crab Boil PopcornIf you don’t have oyster crackers, you can substitute goldfish crackers and keep the ‘nautical’ theme.

I pop my popcorn in a West Bend 82306 Stir Crazy 6-Quart Electric Popcorn Popper. It’s the easiest thing in the world for making a big batch of popcorn.

Also try my yummy red velvet popcorn.

Spicy Oyster Crackers

Oyster crackers are a favorite snack in our household. No, not right out of the bag. Those are rather boring. No, we flavor them up! They’re easy to make, inexpensive, and there are a lot of ways to flavor them. And they’re crunchy. Good-n-crunchy. And since we both like a little kick, spicy oyster crackers are a recurring favorite.

Spicy Oyster CrackersThese spicy oyster crackers have a lot of kick. You might want to tone it back a bit if you’re taking a batch to co-workers! Or not. Just put a sign by the bowl that says ‘spicy’. I think that frees you from any legal responsibility, right?

Kernel Season’s – Nacho Cheddar (on oyster crackers)

This is the second flavor of Kernel Season’s I’ve tried from my 20 pack. The first, bacon cheddar, was outstanding on freshly popped popcorn. This time I thought I’d try something a little different.

Kernel Season's - Nacho Cheddar (on oyster crackers)The recipe for these nacho cheddar easy snacks came from a little pamphlet that came in the box of Kernel Season’s. These crackers taste a hundred times better than that other little cheddar cracker you see in the store. They’re very, very good. And you don’t have to use nacho cheddar. Kernel Season’s sour cream and chive would be good. So would bacon cheddar. Heck, pizza. Or Cajun… The list goes on!

(We’ve now made these about 10 times and they always disappear fast! We keep some on hand in case someone stops by.)
