Loaded with flavorful spices, and an easy process to make, this Alabama Firecracker Recipe is a true favorite! Crispy crackers, red pepper and other spices marinate these crackers into the ultimate snack food!
We had a very special potluck we were invited to go to today, in honor of the 4th of July. (Happy 4th my friends!)
AND in honor of a special relationship being formulated between my children’s fife and drum corps. and an adult fife and drum corps.
For a week, my daughter and I have been wracking our brain’s trying to come up with something other than brownies to take.
(oh yes, we’re making those also – brownies are always a huge hit.)
I like bringing things that aren’t normally something you see at a potluck.
When we finally we remembered these awesome treats we had several years back.
They were SO good and we raved about them for weeks. I contacted the friend who made them, and asked for the recipe.
I remember falling in love with this Alabama Firecracker Recipe from the very first bite.
This was the perfect snack idea for this event. Popular, fun and delicious!
While I hadn’t made this Alabama Firecracker Recipe myself, before this event, I’d had them twice and they were too good not to be the right potluck snack.
I do remember words of advice from my mother, never make anything for a special occasion you have not made before.
Well, guess what? I didn’t listen and I’m glad I didn’t.
This Alabama Firecracker Recipe turned out amazing and was a huge hit!
Not to mention, that can you get any cuter?
I mean really – firecrackers for the fourth of July? Yeah okay, so I realize only I think that’s cute… moving on.
And much like I expected, I probably should have triple or quadrupled this recipe for this event.
The Alabama Firecracker Recipe was a HUGE hit and I was requested to bring them to other events we have as well. Guess I know what my go-to dish will be for these events. haha!
When we got up this morning, I felt like the crackers were still a bit more oily to the touch than I would prefer – sometimes this happens, so it could happen to you.
I spread them out on a pan touching lightly and put them in the oven on the lowest setting (200 degrees) for about 20-25 minutes to get the oil to absorb a little more.
They were fantastic, right Jon?
second site note: We make these all the time now. So good and quite addicting I might add.
They are usually the first thing gone anywhere I bring them. GREAT for a BBQ event, or Picnic or …. anything really.
Make sure you make enough though, they go fast. I have doubled the recipe twice and still run out before the event was over.
