Amish Stewed Crackers

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by WJKing

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.
