While my husband and I typically entertain at least two or three times in our home during the holidays, we also travel quite a bit. I don’t like to show up anywhere empty handed, but I also want to make sure that I am taking an appetizer or dish that is portable and will arrive to our destination intact. Last year, the Sharp Cheddar Kaukauna® Cheese Ball that I took to a Christmas lunch was a smashing hit. So why change things up if they are a crowd favorite? I’m taking another Sharp Cheddar Kaukauna® Cheese Ball (and a Smoky Bacon variety!) to a holiday gathering next week, and I’m making these crunchy (and easy) Pita Crackers to go along with it.
- Pita bread
- Olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Pink Himalayan sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Cut the pita bread into wedges.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Place the wedges on a baking sheet.
In a small bowl, mix the seasoning and the Pink Himalayan sea salt.
Using a silicone brush, spread olive oil on the wedges. Sprinkle with half of the mixture.
Flip the wedges over and repeat with the olive oil and the remaining seasoning mixture.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Keep an eye on the crackers, especially during the last few minutes of baking. They will begin to crisp quickly.
Tips: For softer crackers, bake longer. For crispy crackers, bake 12+ minutes.
You can experiment with different seasoning combinations to pair with your favorite Kaukauna® Cheese Ball variety. With choices like Smoky Bacon, Pepper Jack, Bacon Jalapeño, Asiago Cheese, and Sriracha, there is a flavor for every palate.
