Hello Everyone! I can’t believe it’s been 8 months since I’ve posted.
The New Year has come, gone and now we are already 10 days into
the month of March
It seems like time is moving in warp speed, but I’m working on how I can
jump inside that warp!
Speaking of fast, a few weeks ago I was yet again wondering what I could prepare super quick for dinner…like almost no prep time.
I love crackers! Not just any crackers…Original Premium Saltine Crackers
with sea salt. I always have some in the house. I had some shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese left over from the ground chicken tacos we had the week before.
I placed four rows with six crackers each in a small ungreased glass baking dish, putting a sprinkle of both mozzarella and cheddar cheese on each cracker.
After preheating the oven for a few minutes on Broil, I put the crackers and cheese in the oven for exactly 4 minutes. Why 4 mins? The cheese is nice & gooey; and the cracker is still crispy. In under 10 mins the Cracker Melts were born.
Naturally, I wanted to start adding other ingredients. But, for me the trick would be adding items that would warm/cook in the 4 minute time frame. So, next came Smoked Turkey Cracker Melts…
Then I came back with the Double – Decker Cracker Melt (cheese only).
Deli meat and sliced smoked sausage were great additions. But, what I fell in love with was the Salmon Cracker Melts.
I will say I had a little head start on making the Salmon Cracker Melts. The night before we had broiled salmon for dinner. But, I know you can achieve similar results using smoked salmon or any ingredient/topping that would take 4 mins or less to warm or cook.
Now, just because I’m using saltine crackers doesn’t mean that has to be your cracker of choice. There are many types of crackers, cheeses, veggies and meats you could use with your cracker melt creation.
Though we may eat to live, this doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun waking up our taste buds; while at the same time giving our bodies what they need.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this quick tip and I’ll make sure to not be a stranger 🙂
