Sophisticated Saltines

Ever have a yen for something to nibble on while watching television, sharing some beverages with friends, or just because you want a snack? I have a solution.

Some saltine crackers. Yes, crackers. But wait...they go from same old, same old saltine's to awesome in just about 20 minutes. And here's how:
  • Melt a stick of butter.
  • When cool(ish), dip crackers in the butter making sure both sides are coated.
  • Place the buttered crackers on a rack, set on top of a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Sprinkle the dried seasonings of your choice (I used an Italian spice mix for this go round).
  • Put crackers in a pre-heated 275 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes.


The butter and seasonings give the crackers a zing, while you still retain that delightful, crispy crunch.

Want to add another level of class to this not-so-humble cracker? Add a schmear of roasted tomato spread over the top. Wowza.

I can't wait to try different herbs and spices on the crackers. Herbs de Provence, maybe some sort of curry powder, or maybe some Chinese Five Spice? There's no limit to the directions you can take these babies.
