A few readers have shared a  homemade “goldfish” crackers recipe with me. I decided to try the recipe (with several modifications), and while the outcome tasted good, the process of rolling out the dough took some time and made a huge mess.

Easy Cheesy Crackers from 100 Days of Real Food

As a busy mom I am a big fan of shortcuts, so the goldfish recipe inspired me to come up with these easy cheesy crackers. Making your own “crackers” from scratch sounds like such a daunting task, but trust me…this recipe is ridiculously easy!

slice and bake cheese crackers from 100 Days of Real Food

Of course if you make this “easy” version you end up with round crackers as opposed to fun little shapes, but the last time I checked my daughters didn’t discriminate against a circle. They were too busy gobbling up these crackers and asking for more to even think about what shape they were eating.

And these are by no means just for kids. There are so many ways to get creative, which would surely impress any adult as well. Before baking experiment with adding some of these spices to the dough:

  • black and red pepper
  • fresh or dried rosemary
  • diced olives
  • diced jalapeños.

Or instead of mixing in herbs and spices, just top off the baked cheese crackers with something fun like pesto and grape tomatoes (just like we did for our dinner club last year). No matter what you end up doing, have fun with it and enjoy!

    Hi! I used to make crackers like this from the appetizer section of the original Joy of Cooking. I remember adding a splash of Tabasco sauce or perhaps some hot pepper flakes, or perhaps dill weed! I would make the big log and bake half of it as crackers, and store the rest of the log in the freezer for when guests would come by! It’s a great recipe and always a big hit! Now I am older and ask you: I would like to avoid adding the butter or similar to the recipe. What can you substitute as low-fat for the butter? I don’t mind the fat in the cheese as I love cheese, but want to avoid the butter. Thank you, stay safe, stay well. Stephanie in Baltimore Maryland.

    1. Yes, something spicy would be good in these! And butter is definitely a real food our ancestors have been using for centuries before us. So it’s not something we feel we need to avoid.

    After reading all the raving reviews I was so excited to try these as we are brand new to making the switch to real food. The main meals so far have been a hit and I got the bread down, but I am having the hardest time with this recipe! I followed the directions and while the cheese flavor was ok the texture was horrible!! They were the consistency of sawdust when you bit into them! I have 5 kids and none of them (or myself) could even eat one whole cracker. Any idea what I did wrong or if anyone else has had this problem? Thank you!

    Really good! I will use unsalted butter the next time. I also will roll the log long and skinny and cut them very thin. I like them crispy. These would be a great little add on to a salad. Will definitely make again.

    I know this is an older recipe, but my one year old loves these! My trick is to put the flour in the food processor and then grate in the butter and cheese directly with the grating attachment. Makes them even easier and saves extra dishes :)

      Hi. Typically almond flour cannot be subbed 1:1 with whole wheat and we’ve made no subs in this recipe.
