Here's a homemade corn meal cracker perfect for serving along side your favorite chili or nacho dish. I added some "soul food seasoning" to kick up the flavor just a bit.
You will need:
3/4 c. yellow corn meal
3/4 c, sifted flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. butter or regular margarine, melted
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Divide dough in half. On heavily floured surface with a floured rolling pin, roll out each half into a 12" square. Roll dough loosely around rolling pin and unroll onto greased large baking sheets.
Cut each square into 16(3") squares; then cut each smaller square diagonally in half to form triangles. Sprinkle with seasoned salt if you wish. I used soul food seasoning instead of the Seasoned salt on just half. This way I could taste the original recipe intention and compare the "kicked up" crackers.
Bake in a 350 oven 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheets. Cool on racks. Store in airtight container up to 1 week. Makes about 5 dozen crackers.
The guys really enjoyed these and said the Soul Food Seasoning did kick them up a bit. They keep telling me they can no longer eat store bought crackers because of me! While the turnout was delicious, the end pieces didn't look so pretty. Oh well, I guess I can't have it all the first time around, right?
