The Best Crackers
Some of the best crackers are sold only regionally. If you can afford to buy in bulk, here are a few of the Real Simple food department’s favorites for special occasions.
- La Panzanella Original Croccantini: Serve these handmade sheets of flat bread with soft goat cheese for a simple hors d’oeuvre.
To buy: $7 for 8 ounces, winepavilion.com.
- E.A.T. Raisin Pecan Crisps: The chewy raisins in these slivers of toast offer sweet contrast to a creamy Gorgonzola.
To buy: $38 for four 8-ounce boxes, elizabar.com.
- William Poll Original Baked Potato Thins: Though these addictive golden rounds aren’t crackers per se, they deserve a place on your cheese platter. Top them with manchego and fig jam for an instant canapé.
