Rye crackers

DH brought home a big package of Wasa Light Rye crackers to have with the reuben dip I made. To me, they taste like cardboard, only dryer and with less flavor.

What should I do with them?

You could make something like a fattoush or panzanella - bread salad. Break them up, mix them with a vinaigrette and salad veggies and see what you think.

I love Wasa crisp bread. My store no longer sells it because I was the only one who bought it. I generally just ate it with butter but it would be great to spread something on. They won't work for dipping. Can you transform your dip into a spread?

Wasa's Light Rye crackers don't have much of a flavor of their own but they do have a flavor that you can taste once your taste buds turn you on to it. Be sure to taste a bit of spread on a piece of Wasa Flat Bread before you serve it. You may want to add more salt as none of the Wasa flat breads have added salt.

I think the deer and wild turkeys will get them. To me they're inedible. Gave some to the neighbor along with some reuben dip.

Or I will send them to Liz.

Extra sharp cheddar cheese, spicy brown mustard, and minced raw sweet onion.

Smoked trout, sour cream, sweet pickled onions.

And a coupla cold beers.

Chopped shrimp, ketchup, horseradish, and lemon juice.

And, well, hey baby. What's your sign? I'm a ...

I haven't tried Wasa brand Dawg, but your post reminded me of the RyKrisp seasoned crackers I used to buy all the time. I loved them and might have to pick up a box again soon. Kind of a Triscuit-y texture, and well seasoned. I also liked them because they're heavy duty and hold up well to a thick spread such as salmon/cream cheese.

Rye crackers

Don't bother with the Wasa, Cheryl. An Amazon cardboard box tastes a lot better. Wish I liked beer, BT. I suspect even vodka won't help.

DH is Benedict Arnold. Though he bought the cardboard crackers, he's been eating the dip on rye bread, not cardboard. Traitor.

First of all they NOT crackers, they are NOT for dipping. Here in Sweden where Wasa comes from, they are used as bread.

Would you eat bread with out butter or something on top? I dont think so.

First spread butter over them, then add cheese, cooked egg, ham, turkey or what else you would have on a sandwich.

They are lovely when eaten as they should.

I never understood why people would eat them dry as crackers.

Glad you like them, CP. Your appetizers look delicious, and your suggestions make sense. But you may still have mine. I have plenty of cardboard that tastes better.
