Whole Wheat | Crackers

Sometimes I sit and think about crackers. Buttery. Crispy. Floury crackers. But, they’re all process here in Korea. Processed and covered in sugar and salt. Sad. Homemade whole wheat crackers sound complicated, involved and not enough for a good turnout. Will you get a box of crackers amount out of a recipe? Will they taste weird because you use whole wheat flour? Will they be crumbly and disintegrate under the weight of your favorite cracker topping? I understand your concerns. I had them all myself. Luckily…this one was amazing. You get many, many crackers. They are crispy but will not crumble. The white whole wheat flour keeps the tang at bay.

Ingredients: 2 cups of white whole wheat flour ¼ cup of sesame seeds ( black + white for dramatic effect), plus extra 1/2 teaspoon of salt 4 tablespoons of  butter 1/8 cup of honey ½ cup of cold soy milk 1 scrambled egg (optional) Directions: Preheat oven to 325 F. …

But, I liked it because I also got to use some of my fresh rosemary from my mini-garden and I just love to cut off bits of herbs like a real adult.  I ate this dish several times before it was gone as it made about 3 servings. Loves it!

Add  your diced onions and cook until translucent. Take out and set to the side. Season your chicken with salt + pepper. In batches, fry …
