Substitute For Ritz Crackers?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't necessarily mean for snacking, although I do love them. I use several recipes that call for crushed Ritz Crackers, and nothing I have used seems to give a similar taste or texture. This is for topping casseroles, coating fritters etc.

We like using the Glutino original. Hmm I think I need to make broccoli casserole now.

So glad I saw this! I have just started venturing out into the "specialty" gluten free foods, starting with Glutino pretzels - where I live the crackers are hard to find, but now I'm on a mission!! :lol:

I was going to mention this as well but want to point out that they are not as salty or have a "buttery" flavor to them. To top a casserole, I would toss them with a bit of salt (and any other seasoning that sounds good . . . I use onion and garlic powder in EVERYTHING I do) and a little melted butter.

They're pricey . . . as all gluten-free crackers are. If you decide you like them, you can get them online in bulk for cheaper.

Thanks, yall. I will definitely try tossing the Glutino ones with butter and salt. That sounds like it would work.

Yeah, replacing the Ritz on the broccoli casserole is tough. I have used bread crumbs with some seasoning instead of cracker crumbs - I make bread and destroy it just so I have crumbs around. Which I need to do today, come to think of it...

I haven't tried the crackers as a topping/coating yet (they are pretty good to snack on with spreadable cheese though) - however I do use gluten-free cornflakes mixed with melted butter for things like potato casserole and vegetable casserole. I also use them crushed to cover chicken/pork chops by adding some seasonings and such. Once I found them and (knock on wood) can still tolerate them, cooking in my house became a lot happier :)

Now I'm wondering how Mesa Sunrise crumbs would be on top of broccoli-cheese casserole. Hmmm.
