Cracker Sandwiches


Cracker sandwiches are great fun to assemble and are perfect to curb those hunger pangs between meals. These sandwiches are versatile and are only limited by one's imagination. Depending upon the ingredients you have on hand or the types of crackers, cheeses / fruits / veggies / herbs / nut butters and other toppings used, you can end up with new varieties of sandwiches each time.
If you are looking for ideas to create sandwiches using crackers, websites of companies making crackers would be the best bet. They even have ideas for wine - cheese pairing. An idea or two is usually printed even on the cracker boxes. You can go with open faced sandwiches or fit those toppings between two crackers. It would be convenient to finish off them in a single bite or two and so, don't go overboard with the layers of toppings. Among the large varieties of sandwiches you can create, here are a few that I prepared today.


There are a large variety of crackers available in the market. I went with Triscuit plain and Ritz salt crackers for today.
1. Triscuit cracker with pear and mustard (My daughter's favorite. Or go with chocolate sauce / honey.)
2. Creamy peanut butter and berries. 
3. Cracker with tomato, cheese and pesto / green chutney. Or omit the pesto/chutney and place the cracker, cheese and tomato in the microwave to melt the cheese and sprinkle some freshly cracked pepper.
4. Triscuit cracker with a cucumber slice, topped with crumbled feta cheese and roasted bell pepper. Or substitute bell pepper with an olive. Even feta can be replaced with paneer.
5. Cracker with hazelnut - chocolate spread and banana slice.
6. Triscuit cracker with cheddar cheese, apple and honey. 


As said above, they can be served open faced or covered with another cracker. This goes to Blogging Marathon #26, under the theme "Sandwiches without using Bread".

Very tempting toppings. I haven't tried feta cheese. My daughter usually tries some combos which are very weird to my mind but that is how kids are, right?
