What’s Cooking – Ranch Dressing Mix


For this week’s ingredient of Ranch Dressing Mix I made Zesty Ranch Crackers.  Well, actually, my young quilting friend made them.  I manned the camera.

I originally found this recipe on a quilting blog I read. The quilter got the recipe when she went to a retreat or sew-in.  Naturally I can’t find the posting to give credit, but I have seen the recipe in numerous other places.

What you need:

  • 3 sleeves of unsalted tops saltine crackers
  • 1 pkg ranch dressing mix
  • 1 pkg Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • Large mixing bowl with sealable lid

Pour oil into bowl.  Add dressing mixes, pepper flakes and mix well.  Slide in crackers. Seal bowl, gently flip bowl two or three times to coat crackers.  Flip bowl every 15 – 20 minutes until the oil is absorbed.


If there are any crackers left store in dry air tight container.  I only got about 3 or 4 from this batch.  They were supposed to go home with my friend, but I don’t know if they made it.


To see what others did with their Ranch Dressing Mix hop over to Patchwork Times.
