Go Crackers For My Brackers!

IMG_0327
Hold up! What. The. Food. is brackers?? Let me explain… I came up with this weird (yet wonderful!) name to represent something pretty delish I made today at school. After a long day of chopping, slicing, dicing, cooking, sauteing, caramelising, boiling, stewing, roasting, pressure cooking and baking in preparation for tomorrow’s brunch presentation, I was nicely surprised to realise I had finished all my assigned tasks with an hour to go before clean up!

So I did what any chef in training would do: I made more food. Or more to the point, I came up with a bread-meets-cracker creation that was way too good to keep all to myself. Inspired by the mini cornbread muffins I had made earlier in the day (see them in the picture below)…

I set about creating something a little less fussy but just as tasty. By ‘fussy’, I mean lots of little, very specific health-supportive elements that, although worked really well, would cost you a pretty penny if you were to make this recipe only once. I wanted to mirror the yummy savoury flavours and translate them into something more achievable with ingredients that are affordable (side note: I’m a HUGE advocate of creating healthy recipes that don’t cost the earth!).

Enter my less bread-y, more cracker-y creation: brackers!

Now, before we go any further, please accept my apologies for not being able to show you a picture of my mini, more-ish munchies… Epic fail on my part, I confess. I made the mistake of announcing the birth of my brackers to my chefmates and before I knew it: munch, munch, munch, BOOM! All I had left were the crumbs on the plate.

I was thinking about making them again to be honest, so I could show you a picture of what they look like. But y’know what? Life is short and the time is NOW! You’ll just have to trust me when I say these are the best bloomin’ brackers in the WHOLE wide world! I hope you take decide to make this fun experimental (extremely tasty) tasty treat – feel free to let me know if you do!
