Saltines in Milk Instead of Cereal
We’ve only ever had it with a bit of sugar on top, but we’ve also heard stories of people who added salt and pepper to the mixture. It’s a good replacement for cereal because the texture is very satisfying.
Fried Tomato Cakes
Simple to make and oh so cheap, these tomato fritters get their body from saltines. And what a great way to make a side dish from tomatoes when they are abundantly in season and everyone’s garden is overflowing with them. Anything made into a fritter we are certainly game to try!
Buttered Saltines for a Snack
Who else grew up eating these? They were so yummy and really comforting for a snack food! We’ve also seen them dipped in condensed milk. Both are so delicious. And, you really can’t beat the price.
It’s no surprise that the Greatest Generation used saltines in so many ways when you think about how they literally had saved every penny they had. But, honestly, most of these recipes sound downright yummy.
