COPYCAT H.V. RANCH DRESSING MIX
1/2 cup dry buttermilk (can use regular powdered milk, but I'm not sure how that would affect taste/texture)
1 T. dried parsley flakes
1 tsp. instant minced onions
1 tsp. dill weed
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Throw ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix until it's finely 'powdered'.
(For 1 batch of Oyster Crackers, start with 3 tbls powdered buttermilk, and scale everything to about 0.38)
For Seasoned Crackers:
Dump 16 oz oyster crackers into a gallon ziplock bag, along with 1/4 cup vegetable oil. Close bag and toss to coat. Dump in dressing mix, to which you may add a little more pepper, garlic salt, or dill as desired. Seal and toss to coat. Spread on ungreased baking sheet and bake 23 minutes at 250 °F.
