salt, or to taste
freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
cayenne pepper, or to taste
2 3/4 cups
saltine crackers, crushed
I needed to use up some matzoh crackers, and subbed them for the saltines in this recipe. Poured mushroom soup over the top, baked it, and we ate it casserole style. Yum :)
Absolutely delicious. I initially had doubts about how it would turn out, however I followed the recipe strictly and it was wonderful. A hit at my families early Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you!
I've taken wheat out of my diet and when my family was having traditional stove-top stuffing, I went on a search for something satisfying for me and this was it. I used wheat free crackers and no egg, but it was definitely satisfying with all the right herbs.
Just like Grandma use to make!!!!
