Ingredients for Homemade Cheese Crackers

You don’t need many ingredients to make these – just flour, grated cheese, eggs, oil, rosemary, and chilli powder. Sharp cheddar is especially good because they add plenty of rich flavor or you could use a mixture of grated cheddar cheese and another cheese if you want to switch things up.

Subbing almond flour for half the wheat flour will trim the carb count down a bit, or you could swap the rosemary in these cheesy crackers for another type of herb, perhaps basil or oregano.

What to Serve with an Easy Cracker Recipe

So you’ve made your baked crackers with their distinctive cheesy flavor. What are you going to have your crispy crackers with? Well, these can be eaten by themselves but they are also really good for dipping, and any dip that goes with cheese will be good with these.

They’d be good with some tomato sauce and a shrimp, or sliced tomatoes and fresh basil. These cheddar cheese crackers could be paired with a little goat’s cheese and either pepper jelly or honey. Or have them with unsalted butter and a pinch of Himalayan salt grains.

How to Store These Cheese Crackers

  • Store: Let these homemade sharp cheddar cheese bites cool down on a cooling rack and then you can store them in an airtight container. They will be fine for 6 or 7 days, but bear in mind they go a bit softer each day.
  • Freeze: Freezing isn’t recommended. The best thing about crackers is their crispness and freezing will just make them soggy.

Homemade Cracker Recipe Tips

The dough should be a good consistency to roll out, so if it’s sticky when mixing, you can add more flour. Or even some almond flour. Almond flour is lower in carbs but also adds a nutty taste. Only add a little at a time though, because adding too much will make it dry and too crumbly.

Roll out the dough in an even layer so the crackers will be the same thickness. This doesn’t have to be totally exact, since homemade crackers are supposed to look rustic anyway, but it does ensure they cook evenly.

Keep your eye on these sharp cheddar crackers when they are getting to the end of the cooking time. You will be able to see when they are golden brown. At this point you can either take them out of the oven or give them up to five more minutes to make them extra crisp.

Cheddar Cheese Crackers: Some Variations

This easy cracker recipe can be tweaked if you want to change it up. Cheddar cheese works well in these, either sharp or mild, but you can use another kind of cheese. Gruyere works well, as would parmesan. You could also combine more than one type of cheese.

Take a look to see what you have in the refrigerator. Pretty much anything goes. You could even grate a block of cheese yourself rather than buying it shredded.

As for the rosemary, try basil instead. Even cilantro would work if you’re using a spicy cheese or adding a little chilli powder to the dough. Get creative and try mixing and matching some different cheeses and herbs to see which you prefer.

Rosemary Cheddar Cheese Cracker Recipe FAQs

Why do crackers have holes in them?

Have you ever wondered why crackers have holes in them? That’s true of many crackers from the ones you buy to this homemade cracker recipe.

Well, these holes are known as docking holes, and their purpose is to stop bubbles growing and bursting which would make the crackers misshapen.

Commercially, a docker is a machine that makes the holes to let air escape. In this homemade cheddar cheese crackers recipe though, you just need a fork to make them. The holes keep the rosemary and cheddar crackers crispy and thin.

What are some ways to serve these?

Salami or chorizo and cucumber are another homemade cheese bites topping idea, or how about hummus and half an olive on each one? Add the toppings just before serving so they don’t get a chance to go soggy.
