Tasty Thing: Carr's Cheese Melt Crackers
These are the most delicious crackers I have tasted in a long time. I haven't been this excited about a cracker since Carr's Rosemary Crackers (which are my #1 jam!).
I had them over the holidays with cream cheese and lox and capers and onions (I just used the cream cheese. All that other stuff... not so much.). They were delightful! Light and crispy. Nice and big and sturdy enough to hold lots of toppings.
The key to their tastiness is the onion flavoring. Not only is there a burnt cheese/parmesan-y taste, but there's a distinct onion taste. Almost chive-y.
I think these would be good with more cheese on top (perhaps a brie, something spreadable) or cream cheese with dill and cucumber. OR ham and a sheep's milk cheese.
