Nacho Cheese or Parmesan Garlic Oyster Crackers with Kernel's Seasonings

I bought some oyster crackers at Aldi's with the intention of making these yummy cheese crackers but we ate the whole bag before I even got to make them.  So this time I bought two bags of oyster crackers knowing that it might take a little more to get them made.  I got out all the ingredients to make sure that I had enough of everything else.

I poured the oil and a cap full of kernel seasonings in the plastic container over the oyster crackers.

I put the top on the container and gave it a good shake.  I added a little extra of the seasoning to cover the oyster crackers because I didn't think that they were coated enough.  I think that I ended up using half of the container when it was all done.  I spread the crackers on the baking sheet.

I baked them for 5-10 minutes and then took them out to cool.  They were easily poured into a container for storage and the powder cooked on to the crackers so that there wasn't a mess.  Some were coated more then others but they all looked yummy.

They were really tasty but with the extra seasoning that I put on them, they were a little salty.  I decided that they were so easy and the containers were already dirty so I made a batch of Parmesan garlic crackers (which were my husband's favorite).  I used the Parmesan garlic seasoning and followed all the steps with my second bag of oyster crackers....good thing I got two bags right?

I loved them!!  Both flavors were great and I can't wait to try white cheddar and some of the other flavors that I picked up on clearance at Bed, Bath and Beyond with a gift card ages ago.

These crackers would make the perfect addition to soup or a great snack. I hope that you try out this recipe for yourself to make a tasty treat, especially hot out of the oven.  We thought the nacho cheese tasted like popcorn seasoning and the Parmesan Garlic tasted like the white Cheese Its.  We enjoyed them all and they were a tasty treat at $0.89 per flavor.  I can't wait to mix flavors and see if I can get something else fun!!

  1. That sounds like an easy and frugal snack to make for my son. I'm going to try and find a recipe for the parmesan garlic topping. Thanks!

    1. I do two bags of the Aldi oyster crackers and just a little more than the oil and mix in whatever I have left. Sadly, we ran out of the Parmesan garlic! I also started to add in some Molly McButter because I got some for free at the store and it adds the powdery goodness with too much salt because the nacho cheese is super salty. We love them and I mix them in the plastic container and wash it while baking so I can also store them in the container. We just finished up a batch a few days ago.
