I enjoy having snacks on hand for nibbling around the holidays. The hectic days, especially as we get closer to the end of the year, encourage more snacking and less regular meals as our schedules get busy with parties and entertaining. Not to say that all snacking is healthier. It just happens.
As with many older recipes, this one for Oyster Cracker Snacks is a bit quirky. Remember the impossible pies made with Bisquick? You mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, pour the mixture into a pie pan or baking dish, and Voilà!, you have a pie (of sorts) with custard on the top and a crust that’s miraculously formed below.
This recipe is another one of those unusual things and you have to wonder how someone ever came up with it in the first place, but, it works and it’s tasty. In fact, I used to be addicted to these highly seasoned little morsels many years ago. I’d make them around the holidays and keep a stash on hand for guests and and store a bag or two away for me. I’d pop a few while sipping wine and cooking the holiday meals. Did I mention they’re quite good with wine and beer?! 😉
