Today’s Friday Finds is brought to you by Dare Crackers!
One of my favorite snacks is crackers. My daughter gets this love from me – we can demolish a plate in no time flat, seriously. But it’s not just crackers – it’s all about what you can put on top! I’ve made a meal out of crackers before, and I don’t even feel guilty about admitting it. There are just so many goodies you can pile onto a great cracker to make it extra delicious.
I love classic cheese and crackers, but one of my all-time favorites is chicken salad on a cracker… okay, I’m lying, not one cracker, not for a meal. It’s an eat-and-repeat portion size. Ahem. It’s a perfect way to use up that last portion of chicken salad that’s not enough to become a whole sandwich.
Anyway – that gets me excited about all the fabulous recipes that today’s sponsor, Kayne Raymond of Dare Crackers, has put together. Because he does what I do – he makes crackers into delicious mini-meals! What? Yeah! So I was browsing around his share-worthy collection and I got all kinds of great ideas for my next cracker snack. Yum!
You can check out some of his recipes at SkinnyScoop (including my personal favorite pick, his Dada Daughter Ice Cream Sandwich recipe made with strawberries, mint, and dulce de leche ice cream on Breton Original crackers). There are several creative and sophisticated recipes capturing flavors that are sweet, savory, and even international that caught my eye that would be perfect for your next party or even a casual night in.
