Alabama Fire Crackers

Alabama Fire Crackers

Jan recently made these Fire Crackers as a snack for us, and they’re really good. You could also use Ranch Dressing mix in place of the Italian Seasoning mix.

Fire Crackers


1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 (1 ounce) envelopes Italian Seasoning mix
3 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 (16.5 ounce) package saltine crackers


Place the vegetable oil, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, Italian Seasoning mix, and crushed red pepper flakes in a 2-gallon plastic zipper bag.

Seal the bag and smoosh with your hands to thoroughly combine the oil and spices.

Place the crackers into the bag, seal, and turn the bag over to cover the crackers with the spice mix. Let the bag sit for about 1 hour, then turn again.

Repeat several more times until the crackers are well-coated with spice mix, and allow the bag to sit overnight.

Remove crackers and serve.
