    Nyteglori's Note:

    When my mother was little she lived on a farm and every morning while her mother was fixing breakfast she sat at the table and broke up the old biscuits from the day before. She would take the biscuit pieces and a thermos of coffee out to her father who would get up early to do the farm work. When they moved to the city they no longer made biscuits every day. This is an adaptation of that recipe. It is a comfort food in my family. Coffee has been known to help settle stomaches and is often the only food I can keep down when I have the stomach flu.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 20 saltine crackers
    • 1 cup hot coffee


    1. 1
      Prepare coffee, add milk, cream or sugar to taste.
    2. 2
      Pour coffee over crackers. You can also use 2 biscuits or 2 slices of toast instead of crackers.
    3. 3
      Note: Children often like this dish prepared with crackers as the salt on the crackers cut down on the bitterness of the coffee. If you use toast or biscuits you might add a bit of salt.

      Curiosity got me to try this and I'm glad I did - it's really good! I doctored up my coffee with splenda and lowfat vanilla creamer. I was afraid it wouldn't be enough for all those crackers but it was just right. When I was young we poured milk over cinnamon toast or sweet biscuits and ate those for breakfast, and this reminded me of those tasty treats. Thanks for sharing the story and this recipe!

      Nyteglori, I just had to look and see where you are from!! And, yes, Missouri is where my great aunt was from that taught me about soakie. She was from Wappapello, MO and she would eat the biscuit and coffee soakie. When my son was a baby, I adapted the recipe for him, graham crackers in milk, he loved his soakie!!! Thanks so much for posting, I love it!!!
