How to make salted crackers for beer
The home-made salty crackers are not only safer than the ones we buy in the shop, but they also let you “recycle” the stale bread. As for their taste, it differs a bit from the one the bought crackers have, which doesn’t mean it is worse. Any kind of bread is suitable, and you can use any spices and herbs you like. The quantity can also be different, in this case I am going to make just a few crackers.
- Any bread – 10 oz (300 g)
- Vegetable oil – 1.8 oz (50 g)
- Salt, black powdered pepper and dry basil – 1 flat tsp of each
- Garlic – 2 cloves
- A baking dish or a sheet pan
- Food foil
As I’ve already mentioned, you can take any kind of bread: white, dark, with a filling, etc. I have a dried French loaf. Cut it in slices about 0.4 inches (1 cm) thick.
Add salt, pepper, herbs and garlic to the vegetable oil (I’ve used the olive oil).
Mix up the oily substance thoroughly.
Take the mixture with a tea spoon, trying to draw out the herbs and salt crystals from the bottom. Spread the oily mixture on each slice of bread and cover it entirely.
By the time the bread is soaking, cover the baking dish or the sheet pan with a food foil. Actually, you can do without it, if you don’t mind to wash the dish after cooking.
Cut the bread slices into small squares, rectangles or whatever.
Lay the crackers in the dish.
Put the dish into the oven and dry the crackers for 15 minutes at 300-350 Fahrenheit degrees (150 C).
Here you go, the salty crackers with garlic flavor are ready! Bon appetite!
- You can fully use your imagination. Only bread and salt are the basic components, the oil can be substituted by water, wine or broth, you are welcome to add chopped greenery, herbs and make your own unique crackers.
