Old Bay Oyster Crackers


Old Bay Oyster Crackers are an addictive snack, but are perfect to top on my  Oyster Stew , or my Spicy Tomato Basil Soup. If you like the famous Ranch version of these oyster crackers, you will find these more addictive. These could easily be made in the oven while you are prepping  your stew on the stove or just make them ahead of time to go on any soup you prepare for the upcoming winter days.

Start with a bag of oyster crackers. Drizzle olive oil over crackers  and toss to coat . This will help the Old Bay seasoning to coat the crackers. Stir gently after each addition of Old Bay.

Or make some Spicy Tomato Basil Soup and toss a handful of these Old Bay Oyster Crackers instead of those little orange fish. Although, when I thinks about it, They make a saltine version of those fish which you could use as a replacement for the oyster crackers. These just make this Oyster Stew more fabulous with every bite!
