These little guys are possibly the best thing that EVER happened to soup. Period.  At our house, clam chowder without these little crackers, affectionately dubbed "Golden Nuggets," is downright unacceptable.  They are great in just about any soup, and quite frankly don't last long after the soup because they are so addicting to munch on by themselves. I'm not sure where the original recipe came from - we've been using it in our family for years, and I've made a few minor tweaks. 

Golden Nuggets

1 package (1 oz) ranch salad dressing mix
1/2 t. dill weed
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. pepper
3/4 c. vegetable oil
1 package (about 5 c.) plain oyster crackers

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Whisk together all ingredients except crackers.  Pour oil mixture over crackers and stir to coat.  Pour onto ungreased baking sheet.  Baked for 20 minutes, stirring once halfway through baking. 

Approximate time to make*: 5 minutes plus baking and cooling
Approximate cost for supplies*: $5 per batch
