Another simple recipe I am almost embarrassed to post. My Amish mother-in-law passed this on, as my husband was raised with this one. It's STILL a favorite of his today! He prefers his eggs over top the crackers - you can eat it as you wish! This was also a treat served when someone was feeling ill - fairly easy on the stomach.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 (4 ounce) package Ritz crackers (1-2 sleeves depending how thick you want it, we use about 1 1/2)


  1. Brown butter in a pan, then add milk.
  2. When hot, pour over crackers & let milk soak inches.
  3. Serve with eggs for breakfast.

PA DUTCH RECEIPE This receipe was used when you had a stommy ache. But instead of rites crackers you used saltine crackers and added sugar and cinnamon, no butter.

We called this "fried crackers". My grandmother made it with oyster crackers, but my Mom made it with saltines. I still make it from time to time. Such a great comfort food

My mom always made cracker stew with saltines. We always had it for breakfast food, I have made it for my sons on cool/wet weather mornings, and they love it as much as I did. Great comfort food!!!! I still make it and I actually get cravings for it.
