Well good golly miss molly, these turned out sumptuous. Talk about a savory cracker that is full-bodied in flavor and texture!
This is one of those crackers that doesn’t need a spread or any type of topping. It is divine all by itself. Of course the onion flavor is predominate but there is a slight lingering of sweetness that brings up the rear from the caramelized onions. I realize that this cracker takes quite a few steps to create, but it is well worth it.
I like to create recipes that have multiple uses. If you head over to the post on how to make Caramelized Onions, you will notice that I listed the ingredients needed for a large 5 cups batch or a small 1 2/3 cup batch. What I recommend is that you make the large batch. You will end up with 5 cups of caramelized onions.
You only need 2 cups for this recipe, unless you want to make a double batch. But with the leftover onions you could make my Caramelized Onion Spread which is mouth-watering-amazing on crackers, in wraps or to use as a dip for veggies. Or you could make a loaf of Caramelized Onion Bread.
Even putting some of the onions aside to use on your next salad would add a wonderful savory depth of flavor. But wait there’s more! The sauce that is created for the marinating process should be saved. You can thicken it and make a salad dressing too. Goodness, there are just so many wonderful recipes to be made!
Keep in mind when making these crackers that they won’t dry to a firm, crunchy cracker. I am pretty sure that this is do to the olive oil used in the recipe. For one last idea, you could cut this batter into larger squares and create thin bread-like pieces for sandwiches. I hope you try it and enjoy it!
