DILL PICKLE SALTINES: A Tangy Twist on a Classic Snack

 

THE INGREDIENTS LIST:

About 40-50 crackers of saltine crackers.

1/2 Cup.Of vegetable oil.

1 packet.Of dry ranch dressing mix.

1 Tbsp.Of dried dill weed.

1 Tsp.Of garlic powder.

1/2 Tsp.Of onion powder.

1/4 Tsp.Of cayenne pepper (optional, for a bit of heat).

1/2 Cup.Of dill pickle juice (from a jar of dill pickles).

4-5 dill pickles, thinly sliced.

Additional dried dill weed for garnish (optional)

PREPARATION:

1 – To get started, preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit (120 degrees Celsius). Because of the moderate heat, the crackers will be able to fully absorb the flavors without being too browned.

2 – Combine the vegetable oil, dry ranch dressing mix, dried dill weed, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper (if using) in a bowl of medium size. Be careful to give everything a good stir to ensure that the spices are dispersed evenly.

3 – While stirring constantly, add in the dill pickle juice in a slow steady stream. The marinade will be imbued with the distinctively sour taste of pickles as a result of this step.

4 – Put the saltine crackers in a big plastic bag that can be sealed or a container that can be sealed and has a lid on it. After pouring the marinade over the crackers, close the bag or lid the container, and give the crackers a little toss so that they are uniformly coated. Take extra care so that the crackers do not get crushed in the process.

5 – It is recommended that you let the crackers around 15–20 minutes to marinate in the marinade. This allows them the opportunity to take in the various tastes. And then arrange the crackers that have been marinated in an even layer on two baking pans that have been covered with parchment paper.

6 – On top of each cracker, arrange a few dill pickle slices that have been finely cut. This step adds an additional explosion of pickle flavor as well as a delectable difference in texture.

7 – Put the baking sheets in an oven that has been prepared and bake them for around 20 to 25 minutes. The crackers have to have a crackly texture, but they shouldn’t be too toasted.

8 – Dill pickle saltine crisps should be cooled completely on baking sheets. If you want a little bit more flavor, you may sprinkle some more dried dill weed over the top of the dish if you want to.

9 – After they have been allowed to cool, the crackers should be placed in a container that is airtight. They can be kept for up to a week in the refrigerator, however it’s quite probable that they won’t last that long.
