Store-bought oyster crackers coated in a buttery ranch seasoning and Parmesan cheese, and then baked until they are toasted and delicious. Parmesan Ranch Oyster Crackers are going to be your new favorite snack!
I love covering store-bought crackers with homemade seasonings and pretending like I’m a genius. Like my Spicy Ranch Saltines or Dill Pickle Saltines– I haven’t shut up about either of those since I made them.
These Parmesan Ranch Oyster Crackers are just your regular ol’ oyster crackers that you put on all your favorite soups.
But they get coated in a buttery dill and ranch seasoning. And then! Then you sprinkle grated Parmesan on top. Cheese + ranch is how you make anyone happy.
And then once they’re all coated in cheesy buttery ranch, they get baked until they’re all toasty and delicious.
These are perfect for keeping on the counter so you can grab a quick handful when you need a snack.
- Oyster crackers
- Unsalted butter – make sure it is unsalted or the crackers may end up too salty

- Garlic powder
- Grated Parmesan – you don’t need the fancy stuff, the green can works fine!
- Prepare. Preheat oven to 250F. Place oyster crackers in a large mixing bowl.

How Long Are Ranch Oyster Crackers Good For?
These crackers will stay nice and crisp for up to 5 days if you store them at room temperature in an airtight containers.
Can You Freeze Them?
I don’t recommend freezing these crackers. I think the crunch would be lost after freezing and defrosting them.
- If you want a spicy version, try either the spicy ranch seasoning mix instead of the regular or add 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes to the seasoning mixture
- You could use mini saltines, Cheez-Its, or even goldfish crackers if you want to switch it up
