Seasoned Oyster Crackers Recipe

Seasoned Oyster Crackers will be the snack that disappears quickly! Great with cocktails at your next party.

Do you ever cook or bake something and then realize that you will probably be polishing off the entire batch in a very short period of time? Well, that’s the case with these seasoned oyster crackers.

Coated in butter, garlic, oregano, parsley, and cheese, they are perfect snacking material. They’re irresistibly salty and flavorful.

And the butter! Oh the butter. It’s so very important to this recipe, and so very delicious.

Oyster crackers are typically reserved for soups and chili but they contain some serious snacking potential as well.

These would be the perfect party treat – set out in bowls around your house for guests to munch on while they sip a beer or a cocktail. I’d advise making far more than you think you’ll need, because they will disappear very, very quickly.

Circling back to the traditional use of oyster crackers, soup and chili… well, we don’t need to dismiss that quite yet.

These fancified oyster crackers would take your soup up a notch, and a big one. Sprinkle these onto a steaming bowl of soup and you have oyster crackers in your soup, but with 100 times more flavor.

They’re super simple to make, just like all my recipes. (I still haven’t decided if I’m lazy or smart… or both.) All you do is mix together your butter, olive oil, garlic, oregano, and pepper in a small saucepan.

It won’t take long for that to melt over medium-low heat. While it melts, keep yourself busy chopping fresh parsley.

Sprinkle that beautiful green herb over your oyster crackers. Is your butter melted now? I bet it is.

Pour it over the crackers and parsley and stir until everything is niiiiicce and buttery. Spread them out on a rimmed pan (don’t want to lose any!), and give it a nice dusting of cheese. All that’s left to do is bake them until they are golden brown.

Try not to burn your fingers as you inhale these straight off the sheet pan.

If you’re still hungry for more salty snacks, try Old Bay Chex mix, low-carb bacon guacamole appetizerolive oil roasted almonds, or marble bark with pistachios.

Seasoned Oyster Crackers Recipe

    8 Servings


  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, Melted
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1/3 cup Fresh Parsley, Finely minced
  • 4 cups Oyster Crackers, Heaping (9 ounce bag)
  • 1/2 cup Pecorino Romano Cheese, Grated


  1. Preheat oven to 250°F.
  2. In a medium saucepan, over medium-low heat, combine butter, olive oil, garlic powder, oregano, and pepper. Heat until butter is melted.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine parsley and oyster crackers. Pour melted butter mixture over crackers and parsley. Toss to combine until crackers are fully coated with butter.
  4. Spread on a rimmed sheet pan, sprinkle with Romano cheese and toss gently to combine. Spread them out so they are in a single layer.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, stir gently (return back to a single layer) and bake for 10 more minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container (but they taste best fresh!).
