Bacon Ranch Crack Recipe

This addictive snack combines the savory goodness of bacon with the zesty flavor of ranch seasoning, creating a perfect party appetizer or indulgent treat.


  • 1 sleeve of saltine crackers
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 packet (about 1 ounce) of dry ranch seasoning mix
  • 1 pound of bacon, cooked until crispy and crumbled
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup of chopped green onions (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  3. Arrange the saltine crackers in a single layer on the baking sheet, covering the entire surface.
  4. In a small saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat. Once melted, stir in the dry ranch seasoning mix until well combined.
  5. Pour the ranch butter mixture evenly over the saltine crackers, making sure each cracker is coated.
  6. Sprinkle the crumbled bacon evenly over the crackers.
  7. Top with shredded cheddar cheese, ensuring all the crackers are covered.
  8. If desired, sprinkle chopped green onions and garlic powder over the cheese for extra flavor.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
  11. Cut into squares or break into pieces, and enjoy your irresistibly delicious bacon ranch crack!

Note: This snack is best served warm and can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days. However, it’s unlikely to last that long once your guests taste it!
