Why pay a high price for seasoned crackers when you can spend .89 cents for a big box of saltines and put your own toppings on them?
- 72 saltines (about 2 sleeves, I use fat free)
- 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
- 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
- 2 teaspoons celery seeds
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 300°F
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and top with saltines.
- Brush with melted butter.
- Top with your choice of seasonings (I use them all).
- Bake for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Cool on plate.
- Serve with your favorite cheese or dip.
- Note: Don't be afraid to really load them up because some of the topping is going to fall off.
The first batch I made most of the toppings fell off. I let the butter cool a bit and stirred in some garlic. The next batch with the thickened butter turned out much better. My crackers were 1.09 in the bargain bin at the bread store. When I tasted them out of the box I thought they tasted a little stale. They were still awesome made this way!!!!
I spread each saltine evenly with softened margarine to hopefully prevent the toppings from rolling off, and it worked great. I would definately make these again, they are VERY flavorable. I added all the listed ingredients, a little extra garlic powder and some onion powder. Next time I would decrease the amount of caraway and celery seed perhaps by half because I found their flavor too intense for my taste. Great snacking cracker!
how good these are and very cheap to make..I added my garlic powder to my melted butter..( to make it easier on me) LOVE THEM!! had these for lunch with Pretty Peas With Bacon on Top?..Sandy from Ca's just posted pretty peas with bacon on top..a great match for my lunch
