Buffalo Whales and Oysters...


I bet you were wondering just what in the tarnation Buffalo Whales and Oysters are.

You were, weren't you?

This is actually an updated post as The Secret Recipe Club is no longer around.  But, this recipe for a savory cracker is perfect for this time of year or pretty much any time of year.  At least for snacking purposes. 

"Well, I'm a member of the Secret Recipe Club and even though I'm not in Group B anymore, I can still see the great recipes they post.
And this one caught my eye, or could you say, I got hooked by it?  hmmmm" 
I got the basic recipe from Amy, who had made these with pretzels, but I didn't have any, however, I did have a brand new box of Whales.  Which are just a giant goldfish cracker.    And I also had a bag of Oyster Crackers hanging around. 
 I played with my food.  If I can't have fun in the kitchen, I don't want to play. 
So there...

1 7 oz. Box Whales or Goldfish crackers
1 cup of Oyster Crackers
5 Tbsp. Butter, melted
4 Tbsp. Franks Red Hot Sauce (or your favorite hot sauce)
1 Tbsp. Dry Ranch Mix
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. Celery Seed (Celery Salt is also good)
1/4 tsp. Cayenne (omit this if you don't want it hot)

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil or a silicone mat.
I used the great reusable parchment paper I have.
Dump the box of Whales and Oyster crackers into a large container, set aside.
Melt the butter and add the Hot Sauce, Worcestershire sauce, ranch mix and celery seed.  Whisk together.
 Pour over the crackers and mix together until it is all combined.

Then pour the cracker mix onto the baking sheet, mixing them again, lightly, making sure they are all coated.

Bake for 45 minutes, stirring them around every 15 minutes until they are dry and have absorbed all that goodness.

I loved these crackers.   They were tangy, slightly hot, and really, umm, well, I had to stop eating them so I would have enough to take with me to NPA.  And I noticed that people were nibbling them as well.
I think these would be fantastic mixed in with some chex cereal, or with some nuts or ...
Just like this.   
They were quick, easy and tasty.
And best of all, I had all the ingredients, no trip to the store for me this time.
