    Default Cheez-Its

    Cheez-Its cheese crackers have a lot of calories.

    Maybe they'd be good in a pie crust recipe? Or in a casserole?

    Buy the garlic parmesan flavor-very versatile. Flavor will always trump
    calories :-)

    Good idea. I see they also have Mozzarella and Monterey Jack flavors.

    I thought you already had a box and were looking for ideas about what
    to do with it. <shrug>

    I've tried them all, I like the Original best... they also make larger
    sized crackers, I don't care for those either. I'm the same way about
    potato chips, I don't like any of the flavored ones.

    I've crushed them up and topped casseroles with them. I think you
    could use it as a crust for Shepherd's Pie.

    I guess it's pretty hard to beat kettle chips, cooked in lard.

    I don't like kettle chips. If I'm going to sin with chitata pips
    there're going to be the real deal. I used to like Wise but of late I
    prefer Lays, original or crinkle cut.

    Me too. I like plain cheez-it’s the best. As for chips, years ago there was
    a Campbells potato chips that were better than all the rest. They may have
    been a Tx. brand. They were very thin and some were folded over and puffed.

    I used to buy one of the Schneider company chips, then switched to giant
    eagle chips. They also have less salt. Recently I picked up a bag of Utz
    chips. I'm sold, I'm spoiled. Lower salt, but they don't carry it at my
    market, giant eagle.

    I took a handful of the Colby flavor Cheez-Its and coated some cod pieces
    with them. I sprayed a touch of olive oil to help the pieces stick then
    baked in the oven. My hubby LOVED the dish when finished. Light, very little
    oil, but a lot of flavor.

    I think Zapps (Louisiana) recently started selling chips in my area
    (Massachusetts).

    Emeril (chef) likes to eat his Zapps chips frozen.

    Were they better than Ritz crackers?

    You mean Snyder's? (of Hannover, not affiliated with Snyder's of
    Berlin).

    I'm pretty sire Wise make Giant Eagle's chips.

    Zapps are the best potato chips, with Kettle brand (non-ruffled)
    coming in a close second. Zapp's Voodoo chips rock (limited
    distribution on those).

    I bashed Cheez-Its crackers and rubbed them with some butter to make a crumb
    topping for a crab/corn casserole. Big mistake. The Cheez-Its flavor was
    so powerful the casserole was over-powered. Might have been a good idea if
    I were trying to disguise the casserole ingredients. Polly

    I think either would work very well. I just smashed them with a rolling pin
    then lightly coated the fish. Think I will try the Ritz crackers. My husband
    loves fish and I am always looking for a way to change around the flavor
    combos. I don't like fish so I never taste what I have fixed. I have to
    depend on hubby to tell me if he likes it or not. A cleaned plate is a good
    indicator that he liked the dish.
