Spicy Garlic Flatbread Crackers

Last night at the grocery store, the hubby bought some cheap beer.

DSC 0091 Spicy Garlic Flatbread Crackers Have you heard of it? It’s like PBR, but with a different name. He’s been seeing it pop up at bars lately and wanted to try it out. The best part about cheap beer (to me) is that I can play around with it in my recipes without wasting a lot of money if it turns out badly icon smile Spicy Garlic Flatbread Crackers

I’ve been making hummus like crazy these past couple of weeks and last night I made another batch of our current favorite- roasted garlic. Today I decided to try my hand at some crackers to eat it with. I love crispy, crunchy crackers so I settled on a batch of flatbread crackers.

I found this recipe and decided to give it a try! For the flour I used 1 c white whole wheat flour and 1 c AP flour. I probably ended up using closer to 1 c beer. I started with 3/4 c and then added just enough to make the dough stick together so I could knead it.

While the dough was resting, I minced the garlic and added it to the olive oil to infuse! After about 20 minutes, I divided the dough in half, rolled it out as thin as I could and then brushed on some of the oil. I didn’t use even half of the 3 Tbsp….I just like a thin coating to help everything else stick. Then I added black pepper, red pepper, paprika, sesame seeds and a sprinkle of garlic powder. I didn’t measure, just did what looked good to me. I did add extra red pepper because I wanted them to have a bit of a kick!

I baked them at 400 degrees but mine too about 15 minutes. Then I repeated everything with the other half of the dough. Next time I’d divide it into 4 batches so I could roll it even thinner and I’d bake it on a pizza stone.

I used a pizza cutter to cut into cracker sized pieces!

I may or may not have eaten at least 1/2 of these for lunch icon smile Spicy Garlic Flatbread Crackers
