Spicy Garlic Flatbread Crackers

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

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 :)

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 :)

  1. […] And for lunch? We’ve gone through two batches of hummus (one roasted garlic and one roasted garlic & sweet potato), transformed leftovers (hubby made a burrito with the leftover tofu), and enjoyed some staples like fresh fruit and cottage cheese and tomatoes. I renewed my love of oatmeal bowls and made my own flatbread crackers. […]
