This recipe would be suited for any time of year, but because of what I have named it 4th of July comes to mind.
This recipe uses simple pantry ingredients and the recipe I collected many years ago from a co-worker came from the boss’s wife, hence the name BossMan Fire Crackers. You will need the following ingredients:
- 1 pkg of ranch dressing mix
- 1 C canola oil
- 2 Tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 Teaspoon ground red pepper
- 2-4 sleeves of saltine crackers
Using two grocery paper bags place one inside the other and dump the saltine crackers into the paper bag. Heat oil for less than 2 minutes in the microwave (depending on the microwave it could be less than 1 minute). Add ranch package, crushed red pepper flakes and ground red pepper to hot oil, then stir into an even consistency (not critical) . Pour over crackers in bag and close bag and shake. The more you shake it the more evenly coated the crackers will become. Remove crackers from paper bag and place in air tight container. Allow to cool. And snack away! I have also done this recipe omitting the cooling phase and something happens when it cools. It taste better. This is a quick easy snack. To modify this recipe, you can also substitute oyster crackers in the place of saltine crackers. I would use two oyster cracker packages, otherwise you may have to cut back on the oil.
With the fast pace life of today, some cooking traditions are falling by the way side. Fast is first, taste is second, and healthy is dead last. So, I have created a blog accidentally. The food published on this site is intended for a homemade cookbook, scrapbook style. For the life of me I cannot get my act together to submit my recipes to a website with my pictures and create my cookbook for my family. So I am putting them out on a WordPress server to keep them safe for years and for them to use and remember. If you happen by, welcome. Please sit and stay awhile. Use my recipes and taste my samples from the connivence of your home. You will not be disappointed!
