Crackers are traditionally served with chilli, soup or chowder in the USA. Oyster crackers are small, usually hexagonal shaped plain crackers that contain no oyster whatsoever, but perhaps resemble an oyster in shape, slightly, if you are partially blind, wearing sunglasses in a dark room. They are similar in flavour to saltine crackers. In this recipe we have suggested some flavour additions so that you can benefit from making them for more than an accompaniment to soup. I mean who doesn't love going a little crackers from time to time?
For cheese crackers, sprinkle crackers before baking with finely grated parmesan. For pizza crackers, sprinkle crackers before baking with Pizza Breadsticks Seasoning.
