Happy Accident

Sometimes in my kitchen I have what I like to call a “happy accident”.  That is, something that happens by accident (like a wrong ingredient, or amount, or substitution) but turns out to be wonderful!

These are just such a thing.  I was having a couple of  ladies over one evening, getting some snacks ready, when I realized I had no crackers!  I had already made the cream cheese/jalapeno jelly, and cut the cheese (no, not that kind of “cheese”!)–what to do??  I  pulled out my hat of tricks and whip these little puppies up–so easy, and as it turns out totally awesome–Madeleine loves to have these for an after school snack…and even Saturday morning breakfast!

Crunchy Pita Crackers

2-4 Greek style pitas or Naan Bread 

(TIP:  I like to look at all the ones in the store, pick out the one that has the least number of ingredients, and no additives–bingo!  I found that I can usually buy a pack of 10 for $2.49–and I use them for a number of things–mini pizza, Sandwiches  and pita crisps etc…)

Cut naan into wedges, place on a cookie sheet, being careful to leave a little room around each one.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 10-12 minutes, until they are a little brown around the edges.  Cool, and use with your favourite dip, cheese or cheese dip!

Tip: Want a little extra flavour?  Before you cut, brush naan lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with a little garlic or S&P or paprika…
