EASY HERBED CRACKERS
Preheat oven to 350
2 cups bread crumbs
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (can use white)
2 tsp baking soda
1/8 cup of sesame seeds (optional)
1/8 cup of oil. I used Ghee (butter that has been clarified)
Water...add enough to make it like a watery pancake batter
Herbs, your choice. I used rosemary, garlic, a pinch of crushed peppers and parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Put about one cup of this batter (more or less depending on the size of baking pan) on a greased baking sheet spreading evenly about 1/8 inch covering the whole pan.
Bake at 375 for about 10-15 min, or until golden brown and edges begin to lift off pan. Take out and cut to size with kitchen scissors or a knife while it is still hot and cutable. Flip over and bake the other side for 5 more min.
The bread crumbs is any leftover, stale bread that I collect before it goes bad, in my freezer. When I have enough to work with I crumble and season it. I store in in a airtight container for later use. Sometimes, its whole grain, sourdough, or maybe just white bread. But it is always a combination of different breads. Remember waste not want not?
It took less than 5 min to prepare. The rest is pour and bake. They are a healthy snack and an alternative to any junk food or chips. They are high in fiber too. I got over 2 lbs of healthy whole wheat crackers for less than $1.00. Nice huh? Sorry Trader Joe's I got my own snacks.:))
Now where's my cheese? What? Cheese in my crackers? Yes, the last batch, I added freshly grated parmesan cheese to my batter. Yum. It was a nice addition.
Be creative make your own. I would be glad to hear any comments and see what you made.
Have fun saving money and eating healthy in your kitchen. I wish you many blessings.
