Ok I will be the first one to admit that things sometimes fly right over my head but what makes this recipe "Cheese Crackers"?

Beats the heck out of me.  I was hoping someone had tried it and could say if maybe it had a cheesy flavor from the mixture of the nuts, etc.

Too funny EM!!!

I clicked on thinking "oh CHEESE crackers and then no cheese was listed! I have had cheese that has a nutty buttery taste but not vice versa.

 :thankyou:

 :1-ROFL: Bless your hearts...  :grouphugg: :1-giggle:

These are crackers that are to be served WITH CHEESE, such as a cheese ball.

Maybe we should call them "Crackers For Cheese".

I'd probably want to add some powdered, toasted onion, chives or garlic.
I bet they would be good crumbled as cracker crumbs on soup, etc., too.
Very healthy and nourishing.

 :whisper:  OK has anyone tried these crackers yet?  I'm just not about to go first. 

Also, I need to know if you are using red bell peppers.  And what if I don't have Brazil nuts on hand?  What should I substitute?

Please let me know as soon as you've succeeded with crackers made with your dehydrator.  I want to try some in my newly acquired dehydrator outdoors in triple digit temps.

I'm game since the original post was mine.  I'll get the ingredients tomorrow, but Troubleshooter's family reunion is Sunday, so I'll put them in the dehydrator on Monday morning and give a full report by Tuesday.  OK???   Okay!!

 :claphands:  Staying tuned for the report on dehydrator crackers.  And thinking about what to serve with.

Well I needed to make a nutritious meal while each of us was either healing or in process with dental work, so it needed to be something "prechewed."  I made tuna salad and tried pureeing in a small chopper.  It worked fine on tender Ritz and another cracker.  And we agreed that it would work with other crackers for an appetizer.

Tuna Spread

Just put tuna, pickle relish, chopped celery, a little chopped mild onion, Miracle Whip, and a little seasoning of choice into a small chopper and give it a whirl.  Or use a blender or food processor for a larger quantity.

Guacamole

Chop and mash an avocado.  Add finely chopped mild onion, lime juice, garlic salt, salt and pepper, and a little Italian or Caesar dressing.  Mix by hand.

The crackers are done.  They were "ok".......but let me preface that by saying I'm not a cracker fan.  Troubleshooter tried them with some homemade dip, and he really liked them. (Max :4-dog: agreed with Troubleshooter)

If you have none of the ingredients on hand, be prepared for sticker shock.  I dropped a $20 bill at Walmart purchasing the ingredients.  Of course, I realize that I didn't use all of any of them for this, but still to me that's a lot of money for crackers..... :1-giggle:

Well I have to say with the cost of the crackers. It would need to be a special occasion for me to try them. Oh I just thought -- At Christmas you can get all those nut for less by buying them un-cracked  :gparty9:

Since DH & I both have dental challenges, it sounds to me like I'd have to run them through the food processor a few times to mix it all up into a FINE crumble after they are dehydrated, then use a tablespoon or two IN a cheese ball and put the rest all over the top cheese ball. Maybe use cream cheese with compatible herbs.

Thanks so much for trying this Elle Mae. Nuts are a superfood and perhaps this has come up so that you and Troubleshooter can be reminded to eat more nuts, eh?
