Good Morning! Are you as excited about Spring and “springing ahead” as I am? Today the sun is shining after some very wintry weather and many “no school” days for the kids.
This weekend is birthday weekend at our house. Three of my daughters have birthdays consecutively starting Sunday.
I have this really good cracker recipe that includes bacon and chives that would be great as an appetizer for any get together. It doesn’t go crazy on the bacon, just two tablespoons in the batch really imparts a bacon flavor to the crackers.
Whether or not you are eating with food restrictions, this cracker should appeal to everyone. I am always looking to create recipes that I can feed to company, that I can eat too, and uses real ingredients.
You can cut these crackers into fancy shapes, or just use a pizza cutter to cut them into squares or rectangles. They are intended to be bite size, so if using a cookie cutter, use accordingly. 🙂
Bacon Scallion Grain Free Crackers
1 1/2 Cups of Superfine Almond Flour
1/4 Cup Scallions, Green Parts Only (finely minced)
2 Tablespoons of Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
2 Tablespoons of Crispy Cooked Bacon, crumbled (use sugar free bacon if eating SCD Low FodMap)
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
Directions: Preheat your oven to 350º degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients with a fork, including the bacon and scallions. Add the lime juice and olive oil and whisk again with a fork until the dough holds together. You can add a bit more lime juice if needed.
Form the cracker dough into a ball, and place it on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Between two pieces of parchment or plastic wrap, from into a rectangle. Then, roll the dough with a rolling pin into an approximate 8″ x 11″ rectangle.
Now you can cut out the shapes, I used a small heart shaped cutter, or using a pizza wheel, cut the dough into squares or rectangles about an inch and a half in size.
Bake in a preheated oven for 12 to 20 minutes. This a a wide range, but I have found it really depends on the thickness of the cracker. So keep an eye on them, and bake them until brown but not over brown. Cool completely on the baking sheet to allow them to crisp up.
Enjoy these delicious little crackers as an appetizer, or with whatever your heart desires!
