Parmesan and Rosemary Crackers

By now you should know how much I love a good home made cracker. They are seriously delicious. And these Parmesan and Rosemary Crackers are no exception. They are light, crisp and packed full of flavour. And they are Mr 6 and Mr 2’s favourite home made cracker so far.

I have been meaning to test these Parmesan and Rosemary Crackers for a while. We had this beautiful but rather overgrown rosemary bush in our garden for as long as I can remember. We brought it with us from our old house and replanted it. When I say ‘we’ I mean my husband. And he planted it in a position that really was not thought out that well. Because it was so healthy and burgeoning I took a cutting from it and planted it in a better position with the view to moving the original bush. In the meantime we had more kids, and got too busy to really pay attention to the garden and it was all but ignored.

Parmesan and Rosemary crackers are delicious home made crackers that are nut and egg free. Perfect for school lunches or cheese platters.

But the original rosemary bush kept growing and growing and the new bush grew too. Fast forward to about a month ago and we decided to remove all the plants from what remained of the ‘garden’ (ie two rosemary bushes, one oregano plant and one thyme plant, along with lots of dead plants and thriving weeds) and transplant the herbs into pots, with the exception of the larger bush that we just did not have room for.

The plant has not enjoyed the move. It is starting to come back, but it’s pretty straggly looking. Poor thing. So the the irony of having to buy some rosemary is not lost on me. But these home made crackers are worth it. Crisp, flavoursome and really easy with the help of a food processor. You will love these crackers!
