Cheesy crackers baked with a flavorful coating of ranch, dill and garlic. They are a perfect savory munchy or would take a bowl of soup to the next level. Make these savory cheesy swamp fish crackers and watch them get gobbled up!

Sometimes you just need a savory snack. Something salty with big flavor in a small package.

You know the kind of thing where your hand keeps reaching back into the bowl for a few more as if it didn’t have a choice. These are that thing!

Both my mom and mother-in-law make versions of something similar. My mom usually makes them with oyster or saltine crackers and has them available with soup.

My mother-in-law makes them with the little bite sized cracker sandwiches with cheese filling. She’s been known to bring them as an appetizer/snack for our outdoor parties.

Both always get gobbled up and I wonder why I never think to make them. Then I did!

I was in the mood to make something simple and tasty. Everything that came to mind involved peanut butter and I knew a friend’s kiddo with a peanut allergy would be in attendance. So I was trying to get off that train of thought.

My other stipulation was I didn’t want to go to the store. I needed to settle on something using ingredients I already had.

That’s when it struck me. The bags of cheesy little crackers would be perfect coated in ranch.

I decided to amp up the dill and garlic flavor a bit because everyone loves the dilly ranch snack mix so much. Then these tasty little swamp fish emerged.

I don’t know who started calling those crackers swamp crackers, but I kind of love it in reference to these fish. While I might avoid eating a swampy fish regularly, in cracker form they are delicious.

Too delicious, possibly 😉

I will warn you that it is hard to stop munching on them once you get started. They are great as a stand alone snack, but I can also envision them floating on a bowl of taco soup, potato chowder, chicken and blackbean soup or cheeseburger soup.  Yum!<

Hi Carlle, what a fun alternative to croutons! We may not get swampy or otherwise fish crackers here, but we do get cheesy and salty crackers.
