Here’s a video from the archives (back when I had long hair!).  It’s one of the first ones I ever made, so I was afraid it was a little too rough to post.   But I hope you’ll like the idea well enough to overlook that!
I love premium crackers with lots of grains or seeds in them, but I DON’T love their price tag at the grocery store.  These are very economical to make, and you don’t have to worry about any artificial additives in them. They can even be made from leftover bread that’s past its prime, reducing food waste.
You can make a whole loaf’s worth at once, and they’ll keep in an airtight container in the pantry for a long time, since the oven dries them out. Or, you could just use a few slices (I keep nearly stale bread or heels in a bag in my freezer – then pull them out for things like this.)
In the video, I served these kinda girly-like, in a quick version of a fancy French salad called salade au chèvre chaud (salad with warm goat cheese), but they’d be terrific for heartier man-food, too!  With the Super Bowl just around the corner, I can see them with sliced meats and cheeses or used as dippers for your favorite dips & spreads.
So, what will YOU put on them? Do you often buy crackers at the store? Leave a comment below and tell me your ideas!

    Interesting idea. Not sure what boo-boos you were referring to. I have 2 questions: 1) What did you put on the cookie sheet you baked them on. 2) At what temperature did you bake them.

      My cookie sheet was lined with parchment paper, and I baked them at 300 deg. F for around 20-30 minutes.

    These look tasty. As with yours, I think the “Crunchy Bird Seed” bread will be just perfect for these. Thanks for the idea and the video.

    This video is great- like all the rest! I’ve never tried this, but soon will. I’ve only ever cut my few-days-old bread into crouton size cubes, tossed them with the oil and seasonings then baked like you said. We use them a lot and my daughter will eat them alone for a snack.

    Thanks for a good idea :)

    Like Carissa, I have been making croutons with the older bread and my family eats them as a snack also. I love the idea of crackers. I will try them soon.
    Thank you for sharing with us.

    I’ve done the same as Carissa – making croutons (brushed with oil & sprinkled with seasoning). Same idea as yours, only smaller!

    I noticed your site’s ranking in google’s search results is very
    low. You are loosing a lot of traffic. You need hi PR backlinks to rank in top 10.
    I know – buying them is too expensive. It’s better to own them.

    I know how to do that, just google it:
