I started my obsession quite innocently... Alaina would bring a handful to lunch and foolishly share with me. Suddenly without my knowledge my hand and mouth were working together to pilfer the crunchy, onion-ey morsels into my gullet with no regards to Alaina's lunch...
Then today I bought a bag of "Say Cheese" variety because they were out of the onion (oh the horror I thought!!!). However, these turned out to taste like the most amazing Cheez-It EVER!!
Back at work in a cracker induced happy haze I grabbed for the bag again, this time looking at the price tag... $7.19 for one 5oz bag! EEEK!!!
I can easily take down a bag in one day... there is no way my wallet will allow such a snack habit! Over the years my war of food vs wallet has taught me to make the at home version of many items such as:
- Chai Latte
- Fruit Smoothies
- Kombucha Tea (best money saver skill to date!)
- Veggie burgers
- the list goes on and on.....
So has I continue to inhale these crunchy morsels I am searching for a way to make my own version of these crackers at home for pennies. After some googling and blog stalking I think I came up with a game plan....
Thanks to FatFreeVegan.Com I have a base dough that I think will work well and it just so happens I already have all the ingredients in the apt. To that I am going to cover the flattened dough in onion shavings and bake!
My hope is that the final result will be a tray of crunchy crackers that taste like the best part of an onion bagel!!
Anyone else make their own crackers? Any suggestions or recipes you live by that I should try?
I am off to MV tonight for some major HGTV/DIY action on our yard. Stay tuned for some hilarious action shots of me battling flag stone and rose bushes!
Have a great weekend!
