I have a weakness for crunchy snacks, as do most people.

These super easy cheesy crackers are a perfect way to have that crunchy snack and satisfying cheesy goodness in an easily digestible real sourdough cracker.

Ever since I started making my classic Sourdough Discard Crackers with Rosemary and Olive Oil I have been dreaming of a cheesy version. I came up with my Buttery Parmesan Sourdough Discard Crackers and they are amazing but they don’t have the classic cheddar flavor I was after. So this is my third Discard Cracker recipe and just like the other two it is a winner!

Just take a look at that crispy cheesy goodness!

These crispy cheddar crackers are made with fully fermented sourdough starter discard for an easy and fast REAL sourdough recipe.

The Cheddar You Use Makes A Difference 

I used a nice quality raw organic sharp white cheddar. The cheese doesn’t have to be raw for this recipe but the quality of the cheese does make a difference. You want to use a high quality, dry aged cheddar. I would personally avoid anything with artificial color or suspect ingredients.

If you know someone who makes real aged cheddar that would be even better! Or maybe you are super adventurous and want to try your hand at making your own cheese? If so, this recipe for Farmhouse Cheddar comes from the inspirational blogger Ashley Adamant, founder of Practical Self Reliance.

  6. Bake the crackers for 15 minutes. Remove the crackers from the oven and cut them into small squares using a pizza cutter or knife.

  7. Return the crackers to the oven and continue baking for 20-25 minutes. Just until golden brown.
