Sourdough Discard Crackers

When you have a little extra sourdough starter and you just cannot bake bread...try these crackers! Or, if you are trying to build up your sourdough starter so then you end up with quite a bit of discard, also make these crackers! You don't have to throw out your discard.

Summer tried a few different recipes for discard crackers and combined her favorite parts to make this cracker recipe. Try it! They really are addictive, in the best way. 😊


~1 cup sourdough starter discard

~3 Tbsp butter, melted

~1 tsp salt (and your favorite seasonings)

{I used Cavendar's seasoning, rosemary, thyme, garlic powder}

3/4-1 cup shredded cheese

Stir all to combine. Wet your baking sheet a little bit so that the parchment paper will sit on it better. The wetness will hold the parchment paper down and allow the crackers to stay flat while baking. Summer has also used nonstick foil successfully when she was out of parchment paper.

Spread the mix out thin on the parchment paper lined baking sheet. Stick with it...spread it thin. Summer's favorite crackers are the thin and crispy ones! Once you have it spread out nice and thin, you can optionally top the crackers with Everything But the Bagel Seasoning before baking.

Bake at 325*F for 10 minutes.

Take out of the oven and score the crackers into little squares using a pizza cutter. Just score it, don't worry about it looking perfect or cutting all the way through. It will work.

Back into the oven to finish baking at 325*F for 30 more minutes, or until as crispy as you prefer.

Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Don't let sourdough intimidate you. Sure, you can make it as beautiful and fancy as you want! But, it truly can be simple and easy. Summer's sourdough starter honestly lives in her refrigerator more than it lives on her counter. She just takes it out of the fridge a day before she thinks she can be baking. Allows it to come to room temperature and then feeds it. When it is active and happy, she can then proceed with the instructions for baking whatever goodie that day. Then, back into the fridge to sleep until she's ready to do it again.
