In honor of Celiac’s Disease Awareness Month, Dare Foods and Recipe Redux have teamed up for a sponsored contest featuring Breton Gluten-Free Crackers as an easy gluten-free snack or light meal for entertaining.reciperedux_darefoods_GF

The task was to use their gluten-free crackers in creative, simple to prepare, delicious recipe that would appeal to anyone, whether or not they follow a gluten-free diet.IMG_8485 (1024x683)

Considering my Tofu Quiche w. Breton Gluten-Free Cracker & Almond Crust was not only enjoyed by a man who swore he didn’t trust tofu—IMG_8662 (1024x683)

—but devoured, I’d say I succeeded.IMG_8771 (1024x683)

My friend Emily told me that boys will eat anything made with butter…IMG_8531 (1024x684)

…but I’m going with the crackers in the crust on this one.

To be honest, once I’d tasted the Breton Gluten-Free Original with Flax Crackers, I was somewhat sad that they were headed for the food processor.IMG_8503 (1024x683)

But I was so excited to create a savory graham-cracker style crustIMG_8513 (1024x683)

…that I figured the sacrifice was worth it.IMG_8516 (1024x682)

Luckily, they don’t lose any of their delicious flavor when pulverized…IMG_8536 (1024x683)

…or pressed into a pie plate.IMG_8541 (1024x682)

In fact, while the filling certainly is delicious on its own–IMG_8551 (1024x660)

—and extremely versatileIMG_8573 (1024x683)

(And a great opportunity to cover up the the less-than-perfect, but also less expensive–and no less delicious–farmer’s market ‘scratch and dent’ tomatoes you have on hand.)IMG_8614 (1024x683)

it is the cracker crust that steals THIS show.IMG_8708 (1024x682)

I’m so excited to make another one with the Breton Gluten-Free Herb & Onion Crackers I still have in my pantry.

Considering I (quite willingly) ate the leftovers for nearly every consecutive meal after the original go-round—IMG_8752 (1024x683)

—I don’t think a re-creation is too far in the future.  IMG_8685 (1024x683)
