Thousands of Whole Wheat Crackers!

oenone Aug 6, 2007 01:30 PM

Somehow, I ended up with 30 (30!) boxes of those Milton's Whole Wheat/Sesame crackers. I am just one person and have given away about as much as I could (still have 30 boxes) and tried donating them (not accepted). So I guess I'm eating crackers f.o.r.e.v.e.r.

Beside the usual cheese/ham/hummus/cream cheese/onion/kippers, does anyone have any interesting ways of using or eating them? Thanks so much!

    I don't but I will tell you that churches will often accept food for their pantries that community food pantries will not. Might be worth a few calls to local churches. Good luck!

      I have to agree with Gretchen... smaller local run food banks / soup kitchens will often accept that kind of donation. Also see if Craigslist is in your area.

      If you're still stuck. You can grind them up for breading and filler for crab/salmon cakes.

        make crumbs out of them for breading?

          You could pulverize them, freeze them, and use them as breadcrumbs in dishes that call for them...They could also be used as a "crust" for a savory tart...You could top casseroles with a mixture of them tossed with butter....You could use the "breadcrumbs" to dredge chicken, fish, etc before baking them....

            How about a goy version of Matzo Brie? Break them up in scrambled egg/milk base, let soak for a few minutes, and fry into pancakes. Seasonings can be varied from sweet to savory.

            I'm guessing they would work in a version of Matzo Milk also (crackers soaked in milk like a cereal, usually with cinnamon sugar).

              Take them to the beach and feed them to the seagulls.
