Baked Ritz Crackers with Butter and Ranch Seasoning Mix

Give your Ritz crackers a little something extra, Baked Ritz Crackers with butter, parmesan cheese, and ranch seasoning mix are a simple and affordable snack.

Are you tired of the same old snacks? Looking for something simple yet delicious to satisfy your cravings? Look no further! Baked Ritz Crackers with Butter, Parmesan cheese, and Ranch Seasoning Mix are guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser.

These oven-baked Ritz crackers seasoned with a packet of ranch, melted butter, and Parmesan cheese are a delightful surprise I never imagined, but I'm thrilled to have discovered them. They're delicious and ideal for a large gathering, an intimate get-together, or a football game.

Numerous recipes exist for these crackers. Some involve dipping the crackers in the seasoned butter mixture, for a bolder flavor. I've tried both methods and I prefer using a pastry brush to evenly coat both sides of the crackers with the mixture. This method still yields delicious flavor, while ensuring the crackers remain crispy.

One of the best things about this snack is its versatility. You can customize the seasoning mix to suit your taste preferences. For a milder flavor opt for half of the ranch seasoning packet. Customize your crackers with spices like crushed red pepper flakes, basil, or parsley to suit your preferences. For an added kick, consider mixing a bit of hot sauce to the butter mixture if you enjoy spicy foods.

The Ingredients:

1- box of Ritz Crackers: These iconic buttery crackers serve as the perfect base for this snack creation.

1- stick of Butter: Adding melted butter to the crackers before baking enhances their flavor and ensures a golden, crispy texture.

1 -packet of Ranch Seasoning Mix: A blend of herbs and spices that adds a burst of savory flavor to every bite.

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese is optional but recommended.


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F

2. Place the Ritz Crackers in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

3. Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl or on the stovetop.

4. Once melted, mix the butter, parmesan cheese, and ranch seasoning mix until well combined.

5. Use a pastry brush or spoon, to generously coat both sides of each cracker with the butter and ranch mixture.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the crackers are golden brown and crisp.

7. Allow the crackers to cool slightly before serving.

When you take your first bite of these baked Ritz Crackers, you'll be greeted with a symphony of flavors. The buttery richness of the crackers pairs perfectly with the tangy and herbaceous notes of the ranch seasoning mix. Each bite delivers a satisfying crunch that will leave you reaching for more.
