We’re giving away a copy of the Bob’s Red Mill Baking Book this week and I wanted to feature a recipe from it for Meatless Mondays. Unfortunately, since it’s a baking book and not a cookbook, it’s full of delicious and decadent recipes and not many that are suitable for a meatless meal unto themselves. I finally settled on this simple cracker recipe that would go well with a bowl of chili or tomato soup. These would also be lovely additions to your next holiday gathering and how impressed would your guests (or hosts) be if you said that you made crackers just for the occasion?? Pretty darn impressed I would think. Take these to the next level by adding a teaspoon of dried herbs with the dry ingredients.
Cornmeal & Cheddar Crackers
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 6 Tbsp unsalted Butter, softened
- 2/3 cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1/2 cup Cornmeal, fine or medium grind
- 1/4 tsp Salt
In a food processor, process the cheese with the butter, pulsing until combined. Add the flour, cornmeal and salt and process until a dough begins to form.
Roll the dough into a ball, then divide it in half and roll each half into a log, about 1-1/2 inches around. Wrap the logs in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease 2 baking sheets or line them with parchment paper.
Slice the logs thinly and place the dough circles on the baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes, or until just brown around the edges. Cool on a wire rack.
