    Default Stale crackers

    I have a box of stale Ritz-type crackers, and am wondering if there's
    anything I can do with them besides throw them out. If I used them as
    part of a coating for chicken, would it matter that they're stale?
    Does anyone have a recipe like that? Any other ideas?

    My mom has a pudding pie recipe that uses crushed ritz and butter to
    hold them together as the crust so maybe you could use them for
    something like that?

    I often use up my stale crackers in my meatloaf (instead of bread crumbs),
    coating on baked chicken, mixed in with cheesey chili and in soup(the kids love
    it).

    Hope that helps!! =0)

    You can bake stale bread and chip products on a cookie sheet @ 350 for a few
    min. It will take care of most of the problem. Food usually becomes stale
    due to excessive moisture. Baking takes care of most of it. It isn't a
    100% solution, but it works most of the time.

    Hope this helps,

    My grandmother used to crush stale crackers or stale potato chips and sprinkle
    them over tuna casserole.
    They tasted fine!

    it wont matter that they are stale if you use them as a coating. my
    mother use so fry stale crackers in butter to put on salad. they were
    wonderful. she would break them up and then fry them in enough melted
    butter to coat them. you could also use add them to bread crumbs.

    I should think that would be a good way to use them.

    Ritz crackers make great stuffing! I make the best stuffed mushrooms
    with a Ritz cracker stuffing. I also use Ritz crackers in my stuffing
    for turkey/chicken. It wouldn't matter if they were stale. You are just
    going to crush them and add other ingredients. ~ Melissa
