Some recipes that call for oyster crackers are Parmesan oyster crackers, ranch oyster crackers and cinnamon sugar oyster crackers. Some recipes, such as Cincinnati chili, use oyster crackers merely as a topping.
Make Parmesan oyster crackers by mashing 2 garlic cloves with salt to taste until a paste forms. Combine 1/2 stick of unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil and the garlic paste into a pan at medium heat. Once the butter melts, add 2 cups of oyster crackers and 1 handful of minced parsley. Toss everything well, and spoon the mixture into the bottom of a rimmed baking sheet. Season the crackers with salt, pepper and 1/4 cup of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, and bake them at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 to 30 minutes.
Another savory oyster crack snack recipe calls for combining 1 package of ranch-style dressing mix, 1/2 teaspoon of dried dill weed, 1/4 teaspoon of lemon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder in a bowl with 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. Add the oyster crackers, and spread everything on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake the crackers at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes. To make the recipe sweet instead of savory, toss 1 bag of oyster crackers with 8 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter, 1 cup of white sugar and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon. Bake them in the oven at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.
