Ingredient notes and substitutions
Don’t have all of the ingredients? Here are some suggestions for dill oyster crackers. Adjust the quantities according to your taste preferences.
Oyster crackers – These are small wheat-based crackers that resemble saltine crackers with less salt. They are typically served with soups or stews. If they are not available, mini saltine cracker or mini pretzels can be used as substitutes.
Dill – Dill has a fresh almost citrus flavor and can be substituted with other mild-flavored herbs such as chervil, fennel, parsley, or tarragon.
You can also use a garlic herb seasoning or dry ranch seasoning mix in place of dill, garlic and onion powder.
Olive Oil – Avocado oil or melted butter will work as good substitutes for olive oil.
Try serving these crackers as a salad topper on a crisp romaine salad, or a lettuce tomato onion salad. They also taste great in your favorite bowl of soup such as chicken noodle soup.
This tasty savory snack is also a great snack to serve in an appetizer spread with assorted crackers, cheeses, and dips.
Oyster crackers are a blank slate when it comes to flavor which makes them very versatile. Here are some suggestions to change up these tasty bites.
Parmesan – Add grated parmesan cheese to the seasoning mix for a cheesy twist.
Spicy – Add a pinch of cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes to give your crackers a spicy kick.
Lemon – Mix lemon zest or a half teaspoon lemon pepper into the seasoning mixture for a bust of citrus flavor.
Mexican – Instead of dill and garlic use 2 to 3 teaspoons taco seasoning for a Tex-Mex flavored oyster cracker.
How to store leftovers
Store leftover crackers in an airtight container at room temperature for a week.
- Use quality ingredients that are fresh for the best flavor.
- While baking, stir the crackers occasionally to ensure that they cook evenly.
- Store the crackers completely before transferring them to an airtight container.
Absolutely! You can make a double or triple batch to serve to a large crowd. Once they have cooled off, store them in an airtight container until you are ready to serve them.
When they were first created, oyster crackers were intended to top oyster stew and oyster dishes.
You don’t have to bake the crackers, but they will taste better if they are baked first. Baking them helps the oil and spices to be absorbed and it makes them nice and crispy.
You can easily freeze dill oyster crackers by placing them in a resealable plastic or silicone bag for up to three months. To thaw them, remove them from the bag and palce them on a plate or tray to thaw out. You can also place the frozen crackers in the oven at 350 for a few minutes to defrost them.
