Why not customize the Ritz cracker for your next party? Here you take a full box of regular Ritz crackers and toss them in 8 tbsp (1 stick) of melted, unsalted butter. I place the crackers in a large bowl, then drizzle half the butter over them, toss – and repeat.
In a separate bowl, combine one package Ranch Seasoning mix, 1 tbsp. red pepper flakes, 1 tsp. garlic powder and 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese – stirring to combine. Shake over buttered crackers and gently stir to coat crackers in mixture.
Alternatively, I use 2 tbsp. Penzey’s Buttermilk Ranch Seasoning and 1 tsp. Penzey’s Roasted Garlic Salt.
Place on a half sheet pan and bake in a 300 degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Enjoy!
