Meatless Mondays: Cornmeal & Cheddar Crackers {Giveaway}

We’re giving away a copy of the Bob’s Red Mill Baking Book this week and I wanted to feature a recipe from it for Meatless Mondays. Unfortunately, since it’s a baking book and not a cookbook, it’s full of delicious and decadent recipes and not many that are suitable for a meatless meal unto themselves. I finally settled on this simple cracker recipe that would go well with a bowl of chili or tomato soup. These would also be lovely additions to your next holiday gathering and how impressed would your guests (or hosts) be if you said that you made crackers just for the occasion?? Pretty darn impressed I would think. Take these to the next level by adding a teaspoon of dried herbs with the dry ingredients.

Cornmeal & Cheddar Crackers

In a food processor, process the cheese with the butter, pulsing until combined. Add the flour, cornmeal and salt and process until a dough begins to form.

Roll the dough into a ball, then divide it in half and roll each half into a log, about 1-1/2 inches around. Wrap the logs in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease 2 baking sheets or line them with parchment paper.

Slice the logs thinly and place the dough circles on the baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes, or until just brown around the edges. Cool on a wire rack.

Now for the giveaway. Follow the directions in the application below. In the comments section, tell us what your favorite thing is to bake. If you don’t like baking, tell us what your favorite dish is to cook. THEN, make sure you click on “I did this” to be entered.

So I have been cooking and baking for a long time but only found out recently that I am a celiac. This has changed my cooking and baking and it is really hard to get baked goods that taste like they have normal flour in it. My favourite cake is carrot cake but I have yet to make a gluten-free one. I have made some chocolate zucchini cake what turned out good. Also a chocolate almond flour cake which was quite nice and moist. I am always looking for new recipes to try that use different flours to find the proper consistency in baked goods for celiacs.

Cherie says:

I actually love baking just about anything but the first thing I baked was muffins for the county fair….that was a few decades ago and required a box mix – can you believe that! Now everything I make is from scratch with the best ingredients I can find. And now that my daughter is almost a fully fledged vegan, the ingredients are all natural and never processed!

I love baking, especially in the cold, winter months! Banana bread with spelt flour, chocolate chips and walnuts has to be my favorite.

Jaclyn says:

My favorite thing to bake is bread. Not only does it smell wonderful, but it gives me a great feeling of accomplishment. And it’s fun to customize with other ingredients such as soy flour (for extra protein) or wheat germ (for extra fiber).

jacquie says:

my favorite thing to bake is – oh that is a hard one actually – either cookies or bread (in no particular order)

jacquie says:
