I really hate throwing out food, but the Ritz crackers I’d bought for our slow cooker dips were all crushed and not really worth eating as crackers. I was mostly annoyed because I had bought them in that condition. Sheesh.
So while they were still in the bag, I crushed them up into little pieces. Didn’t take long — they were mostly broken anyway.
Then I chucked them in a bowl with a little bit of butter and some basil and oregano and gave that a stir.
We were having a meatball pasta bake that night so I thought a nice crumb crust wouldn’t go amiss.
So I sprinkled it over top and baked as usual. Tada!
