Ranch Saltines

After making a sleeve of Fire-Eater saltines the other day, I had to keep trying other flavors. I mean, there’s good and then there’s crazy good. These Ranch saltines are definitely crazy good. Great Ranch flavor on a crunchy yummy cracker. That’s all you’ll need, trust me. Yes, you could slather a bit of cream cheese on them too, but I found them addicting enough just as they are. It’s the easiest snack cracker you could ever make.

Ranch Saltines

Buy Ranch seasoning in bulk or if you prefer you can make it at home. Check out my homemade version. And add more if you want. I’m a Ranch addict, so I put extra on my Ranch saltines.

I use the same base recipe any time that I make flavored saltine crackers: a sleeve of crackers, 1/3 cup of oil, and whatever flavoring I am using. It’s just that simple.

Nacho Cheddar Saltines

My addiction to flavored saltine crackers is getting worse. It all started a few weeks ago when I made a batch of Fire-Eater saltines. They were packed with heat and flavor. They disappeared in no time at all. I’ve since made several other flavors, all of them great. But these nacho cheddar saltines aren’t great. They’re greater than great. Very similar in flavor to those little old fish-looking crackers, but oh so much better. And easier to make that’s for sure!

Nacho Cheddar Saltines

There’s absolutely no point in making only one sleeve of nacho cheddar saltines. They’ll be gone before the 8 hour ‘resting’ time is up. Make a whole box and you’ll thank me.

You can use something like Kernel Seasons Nacho Cheddar seasoning when you make these crackers. Or grab a big ole jar of cheddar cheese powder and go to town!

Also try my delicious bagel-seasoned saltines.

Smoky Ranch Saltines

Flavored saltines are a favorite snack in our house. They are so easy to make. They are great for travel snacks. You can make them in pretty much any flavor you can think of. From Buffalo wing-flavored, to spicy Fire-Eater saltines, to these smoky ranch saltines, you can’t go wrong with them.

Smoky Ranch Saltines

If you’re not gentle when tossing the saltines they will crumble and not get fully covered in the flavoring. If you double or triple this recipe make each sleeve of crackers in it’s own bag or you’ll have trouble getting the smoky Ranch seasoning to coat each individual saltines.

Also try my Buffalo wing, Fire-eater and lime pepper saltines.

Lime Pepper Saltines

It seems that I have a bit of an addiction to flavored saltines. It all started when I made Fire-Eater saltines, which disappeared in no time. I should probably hide them, but then, I’d still know where they are so that isn’t going to help. Guess I’ll try moderation instead. These lime pepper saltines aren’t going to help either. They have just a hint of lime with a great pepper flavor. I was very pleasantly surprised as to just how much I liked them.

Lime Pepper Saltines

I found the seasoning at our local GFS store, but you can also find a mix like it at your local grocery store. You can also substitute lemon pepper, which seems to be a bit more common. Lime pepper saltines are different, more citrusy to me.

Also try my Buffalo wing, Fire-eater and smoky Ranch saltines.

Bagel-Seasoned Saltines

Ever since I made a batch of Fire-Eater saltines I just cannot stop making flavor after flavor of crackers. You can use just about any seasoning you like, but whatever you do, you have to make these bagel-seasoned saltines. Poppy and sesame seeds combined with onion and garlic flavors, with just a hint of fennel (use a little or a lot, but start with a little) make for the perfect combination. There’s really no point in only making one sleeve of these saltines, they won’t last that long at all.

Bagel-Seasoned Saltines

More Seasoning, More Better


The seasoning may have trouble adhering to the crackers. If that happens to you add a bit more oil. Or just sprinkle the saltines with a bit more seasoning right before serving. Either way, everyone will love these bagel-seasoned saltines.

Also try my baked seasoned Ritz crackers and my nacho cheddar saltines.

Buffalo Wing Saltines

Making a big ole batch of Fire-Eater saltines inspired me to make even more varieties of flavor-infused crackers. Of course, my first choice was Buffalo wing saltines since I eat anything Buffalo-ish. These incredibly easy-to-make snacks are just what you’d expect: crunchy and packed with flavor.

Buffalo Wing Saltines

Serve Buffalo wing saltines with softened cream cheese to help ‘cool’ the kick if you desire. I just eat them by the handful straight out of the bag.

I found Buffalo wing seasoning at our local GFS store. You can also find it in your grocery store’s spice section.

Also try my lime pepper and Fire-eater saltines.

Fire-Eater Saltines

Well, my goodness me! There’s good and then there’s crazy good. These Fire-Eater Saltines are definitely crazy good. A good healthy amount of spicy kick on a crunchy yummy cracker. That’s all you’ll need, trust me. Yes, you could slather a bit of cream cheese on them too, but I found them addicting enough just as they are.

Fire-Eater Saltines

There’s really no need to make just a single batch of Fire-Eater Saltines because a lil ole sleeve just isn’t going to be enough, that’s for sure! And if you don’t like the heat, just substitute your favorite (milder) seasoning.

Also try my lime pepper, Ranch and Buffalo wing saltines.
