One my my child's favorite words is "cracker." Most often she is referring to the little organic graham sticks I give her as "cookies." But she is not opposed to a good gourmet cracker either. Who can blame her? I've blown an embarrasing amount of money on those exotic flatbreads; crackers, crisps, and crostinis. And then I found out how easy it is to make them. You can buy the lavash flatbread for about $2.00US, enough to make a couple $5.00 boxes of gourmet crackers at least.
I just used the things I had on hand and made these two basic types:
Parmesean, Rosemary and Sea Salt
Aged Gouda, Three-herb cracker
Looking for this recipe? It will be part of an upcoming book with Ali at Cleaner Plate Club.
For those of you following the toddler recipes (Taute Cuisine) the kid eats this recipe as well. In fact, she loved the gouda one and requested "More! More! More!" You wouldn't think of this as "kid food" but you need to get out of that mind set and just serve FOOD. Outside of a few allergy rules and rules on using pasteurized dairy and well-cooked meats, kids pretty much eat what you do.
