Simple, Salty and Southern (crackers and milk)

7 Feb

Now if you didn’t know, I’m a true Southern Girl,  born and bred in the great state of South Carolina. For those of you are aren’t from the South, this lovely concoction pictured above is saltine crackers and milk.  This is a take on the southern staple, cornbread and milk. Now don’t turn your nose up till you try it. It is super delicious!

Crackers and Milk

Step 1: Get yourself some fat-free saltines

Step 2: Get yourself a cup, jar, or trough

Step 3: Place crackers in your cup and crush

with your spoon

Step 4: pour milk over the crushed crackers

Step 5:  add a dash of salt and pepper, if you like…

Step 6: enjoy

    Now you can introduce grits and the South will truly be represented.

    I am not from the south (from Utah), but I have loved crackers in milk since I was a little kid. My parents always thought it was gross and didn’t get it.

    However, I did not know that it was southern, or that other people liked it at all.

    I grew up eating this as a snack or special treat at my grandmother’s house. Anytime I’ve mentioned this to other people, they look at me with surprise or disgust. My grandmother was from Arkansas and I’ve lived on the West Coast my whole life. Is this very common in the South then? I wasn’t sure if my grandmother was just an insane culinary genius, had picked it up from her original home region, or perhaps it was a leftover treat from the depression era.. Regardless of it’s history, I’m glad to see that someone else in the world appreciates this yummy snack 🙂

      Yep, crackers and milk is a pretty common occurrence in the South, right along with cornbread and milk! We also put peanuts in our coke and then drink/eat it.

      Apparently, plain liquids are just too boring! LOL

      Ps. Your Grandma had fine taste in food treats:)

      Thanks for sharing~

    I grew up in Massachusetts with Grandparents who were New Englanders. My Grandmother served us Saltines and milk as a snack in the summer time.
