Parmesan & Ranch Crackers

 These crackers are buttery, cheesy and seasoned with ranch! They make a perfect snack. I love them added to tomato, or other kinds, of soup too! It doesn’t hurt that they are a cinch to make!!

Buttery, cheesy and perfect blend of spices!! - Little Dairy on the Prairie

I have fond childhood memories of eating saltine crackers. My family used to live a thirty minute drive, on a gravel road, away from our church. We lived on a ranch which means there were lots of chores to be done in the mornings. The whole family got an early start because my Mom insisted that we be on time to church. Now that I am the Mom in my house…I insist that we be on time to church.  Thanks Mom!! We were always at church for more than three hours. Then the whole family would load up in the station wagon and head up the hill for home.

How does this story apply to my love of soda crackers? Well, by the time we walked through the door we were all STARVING! It became our tradition to eat saltine crackers with butter on them. We did this every single Sunday that I lived at home! You just wanted to make sure that you buttered your stack and got out of dodge before my Dad wandered in. Because if you happened to be standing there with a big tall buttered stack of crackers, yup, they were his!

 I still love saltines and have been tempted to do something to fancy them up for some time. When I saw Trish from Mom on Time Out make Easy Spicy Ranch Crackers, I knew I wanted to try my own version. I thought these crackers would be a perfect snack for the big game on Sunday!

Mini Crackers

I found these mini saltines and knew they would be perfect. I had never seen them before. Is this a new thing or have you all been enjoying them forever?

Of course I used real butter to make these crackers! I whipped them up in a snap too!

Parmesan Ranch Crackers!!!

I had to hide them before I ate them all. When Justin came in the house, of course he started nibbling on them. Well, maybe it was more than a nibble. He declared, “these crackers are pretty dang good”.

I live on a dairy with my husband and three boys. Although we are in the business of raising cattle, we really are in the business of raising boys. I am passionate about catching up with each other at meal times. My love language is food. And I hope that my men feel the love in every bite.


  1. Will have to try these since my hubby has the same childhood memories:) Looks yum!

  2. Elaine Duckett says:

    I remember all of the kids lining up at the counter on Sunday’s to make “their” stack of soda cracker after getting home from church. It seems like some used more than their fair share of butter on “theirs.” Those are probably the ones Dad took.

    Never seen mini crackers before but I will start looking and make a batch to eat while watching this years episodes of American Idol.
