Yummy Appetizers Part 2

Yesterday I shared 2 of my favorite dips with you and today I am going to share 2 more of my favorite appetizers to make for a party.  Again...super yummy and so simple!

*photos from*

1 gallon zip lock bag
1 box unsalted saltines (4 sleeves)
1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 ranch powder packets
3-4 TBS crushed red pepper...2-3 TBS if you can't take the heat
1 TBS garlic salt
1 TBS onion powder
1 tsp paprika
1 TBS black pepper

Place all ingredients (minus the crackers) in zip lock bag and mix around so everything is in the oil.  Next add the saltines to the bag shaking a little between each sleeve so all crackers are covered.  After all the crackers are in (I usually leave out about 10 so there is extra room for shaking) seal the bag and shake like crazy.  Lay the bag on one side and then 30 minutes flip it over.  Leave crackers to soak overnight and then enjoy the next day! 

Pumpernickel Cheese Melt
pumpernickel bread
Swiss cheese shredded
mayo-enough to stick ingredients together
bacon bits-Oscar Meyer bag
green onion-chopped

Shred the entire block of Swiss cheese, add the entire bag of bacon bits, chopped green onions (as much as you would like) and about 1.25 cups of mayo (just enough to make everything stick together well) in a bowl and mix well.
Cut the bread into thirds and place on baking sheet.  Place large spoonful of cheese mixture on bread pieces (pile it tall so it melts nicely)
Set oven to 400 and cook until cheese browns (8-10 min)
