I am not going to lie, until a few weeks ago, I had no idea Buttered Saltines were a thing.

I guess it could be that I never really had grandparents in my life to teach me this!

Apparently, this has been a thing for many years and the majority of people I have talked to know about this easy snack and ate them as a kid.

However, some were just as confused as I am but I have to say, I’ve tried it and it is DELICIOUS.

Well, whether you’ve tried it or not, Buttered Saltine Crackers have made a comeback as an easy and tasty snack you make it just seconds! Seriously, you need to try these!

Oh, and while you are at it, give our Christmas Crack a try (you can enjoy it anytime of the year).

How to Make Them:

Start by softening your butter just enough to smear them onto the cracker. If you don’t, you risk breaking the cracker.

Now, some people have even said you can flip the cracker upside down so the salt side hits your tongue and the other side is covered in butter. That is also delicious.

You can even put these on a cookie sheet and bake them for a few minutes to make them warm and then apply the butter so it’s a bit melty.

I have to say, I am sad that I just learned this tasty snack but I am so glad I did!

This "new" trend is anything but new! I'm in my 60s and had this OFTEN growing up, and still do on occasion. The old saying DOES hold true here, though: "Everything old is new again."
