Spicy Oyster Crackers

I've always made the Hidden Valley Ranch oyster crackers, and I do love those, but tonight I wanted to play with something a bit different.

This recipe is full of spices, and it does pack a punch, but wow, the taste is awesome. These would be perfect for a party or tailgating, or simply as a snack anytime. (original recipe from Guy Fieri).

1/4 cup canola oil
4 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
1 tbsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. course-ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried minced onion
1 tsp. parsley leaves
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1 (16-ounce) package oyster crackers

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Combine spices together with oil and melted butter. Toss in oyster crackers and mix to coat.

Place crackers on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray, spreading crackers out into a single layer.

Bake for 25 minutes, moving crackers around gently with a spatula halfway through.

Remove crackers with a spatula. Let cool on a wire rack. When completely cool, store in an airtight container such as a mason jar.

Keeps several weeks in an airtight container.
