To honor Celiac Disease Awareness Month, Dare Foods invited members of The Recipe ReDux to create tempting gluten free recipes using their delicious gluten free cracker varieties – Breton Gluten Free Original with Flax and Breton Gluten Free Herb and Garlic.
If you or someone in your family benefits from a gluten free diet these crackers are a perfect accompaniment to any meal. You don’t need to be gluten intolerant to appreciate these crackers.
I tried both and was pleasantly surprised. Both cracker varieties are flavorful and pair well with a variety of foods. I made smoked trout canopies that I’ll share next week. For now, I have a crab cake I think you’ll enjoy.
Crab Cakes tend to be dry when you use wheat-based bread crumbs. The dry bread soaks up moisture like a sponge from the crab and any condiment you choose to add. Mixing in an egg helps bind the crab cake but often that moisture is quickly absorbed by the crumbs.
Breton Gluten Free Herb and Garlic crackers supplied just enough binding texture to hold the crab cake together without drying it out. The delicate seasoning worked perfectly with the crab.
My guy claimed that these were the best crab cakes he had eaten in a long time. Hmm, hey I made my traditional ones only 2 weeks ago. I guess Breton is on to something!
