Essential Slow Cooker RecipesIf you need a snack that’s effortless to make, these crackers are versatile enough for any occasion. I remember making them with my grandfather when I was younger. Along with pickles, they were his signature snack that I can’t make without thinking of my time in the kitchen with him. They look fancy enough to set out in a small serving bowl during a holiday party, but they’re still fit for munching on on a Sunday night when you’re lounging in your sweatpants.

  • Yield: 4 to 6

  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

  • ½ teaspoon dried dill
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages oyster crackers
  • ¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

How to Make It
  1. Spray the insert of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, ranch dressing mix, garlic, and dill.
  3. Put the oyster crackers in a slow cooker and pour the butter mixture over the top. Stir to combine and coat the crackers. Cover and cook on Low, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour. Remove the crackers from the slow cooker and place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the Parmesan and parsley on top and stir. Let cool completely. Pour into a bowl and serve.
