Here at The Daily Meal, we are always looking for new ways to make weeknight dinners quick and easy without sacrificing flavor or quality. With the help of a few simple ingredients and pantry staples, dinner can be ready in no time at all. We’ve chosen a snack time favorite, Ritz Crackers, and it turns out that the scalloped edge and lightly salted crackers can be used to make a variety of foods.
With a little ingenuity and resourcefulness, Ritz Crackers can be used to make many of your favorite foods. Instead of using store-bought or traditional bread crumbs, try replacing them with crushed Ritz Crackers for an easy, pantry-ready, and go-to substitute. They can even be used in pie crust instead of Graham crackers or wafer cookies.
Using Ritz Crackers, whip up some breaded pork tenderloin for your next meal or use leftover mac and cheese for easy fried appetizer balls. We’ve also included recipes for classic meatloaf, baked cod with Ritz Cracker gremolata, and salmon cakes with a creamy dill sauce.
So, next time you add bread crumbs to your grocery list, check to see if you have a package of Ritz Crackers in your pantry instead. Check out some of the recipes we've compiled and be inspired to create your own.
