Tips For Making Ranch Cheez-Its

  • Vegetable is the best oil to use for this recipe because of its neutral flavor, but you could use canola oil or olive oil.
  • Store them in an airtight container and they will last a few weeks. A ziptop bag works well to. They will go stale quickly if they are exposed to too much air.
  • You can use plain Cheez-Its or any of the other flavors. I like White Cheddar and Parmesan is another good flavor.

How To Make

To make Ranch Cheez-Its, mix together 1/2 cup of vegetable oil with 1 packet of Ranch seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, and 1 teaspoon of dried dill in a large bowl. Gently stir in the Cheez-Its and let them sit for 10 minutes so that the seasoned oil has time to soak into the crackers.

Spread them out on a large baking sheet and bake them at 250 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring them halfway through.

The dill can be left out or you can use 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh dill.


Can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 week.
