These Flatbread Sage Crackers are great for dips, spreads, and general snacking. Change up the sage with other herbs or spices like thyme, za’ztar, paprika, cumin, etc.!
I was all ready to make this Beet Hummus but hadn’t planned on making anything to eat it with. Not that I haven’t just eaten hummus right out of the bowl with spoon, I just think you guys expect a little more from Eat Up! Kitchen. So, let’s make some crackers!
My first food processor purchase this past week is changing my life. I’ve made hummus before with a blender but I’m realizing what I always expected, the food processor can’t be beat. I was worried it would take up too much room and be a pain to clean. I’ve been fine this long with out one, why risk taking up valuable kitchen space? I spent an entire day reorganizing my kitchen to make room for this thing and it was totally worth it. Not only do I have room for the food processor, I now have a lot more floor room to have guests over / for my lighting equipment. We call that a win / win. Having now made crackers and hummus, I’m excited to report it was totally worth the investment and kitchen organization. Speaking of investment, I used my Discover Card miles so this only cost me $80. If you’re not getting cash back or miles on your credit cards, you might want to look in to it.
I’m always looking for something to chomp on so these crackers are perfect. They’re made with pantry staples and can be ready to eat in a half hour. If you have some more time and don’t plan on eating them all right away, turn the oven off when they’re done and let them get cracker-hard in the oven for an hour or two. ‘Cracker-hard’ is what you want when you want to spread some dips on the cracker without it breaking.

Flatbread Sage Crackers
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 2 tbs freshly minced sage
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 1/2 cup cold water
- Preheat oven to 450°F. Add all ingredients except for the water to a food processor and pulse to combine. Add the water and pulse until the flour is no longer dry.
- Dump the dough out to a dry surface and pull together to form a ball. Divide in to four pieces and roll each piece in to a ball.
- Press down on the ball of dough to flatten then roll out as thinly as possible. You should be able to see your hand through the dough. Set aside on parchment paper. Repeat with the other three dough balls.
- Transfer the rolled out dough with the parchment paper to a sheet pan and bake for 3-4 minutes per side - flipping once once edges start to brown.
- Turn the oven off and leave the crackers for an hour or longer for them to harden.
