putting on the ritz Thu, 10/25/12 1:05 AM (permalink)
I love Ritz crackers- have ever since I was a little kid in joisey in the 60's and carol reed a weather lady on a ny staion advertised them- anyone remember her?
Anyway those from ny - nj -conn have certainly at least heard of longtime WOR radio host Joan Hamburg's Ritz cracker stuffing
http://www.recipegoldmine.com/dressing/joan-hamburgs-ritz-cracker-stuffing.html  ( really worth trying) , there is no better cracker for chicken liver spread ,and just tonite I made a tasty baked cod with Ritz coating....was wondering how other folks put on the Ritz??

      When I read this thread title, I pictured Peter Boyle  singing in Young Frankenstein.
       
      And then:
       
      "Gooooood cracker. Good cracker."

        My Aunt used to make a "mock apple pie" from a Ritz box recipe.  First time we tried it we really thought it was an apple pie.

          I've made that "mock apple pie". It was really good but wouldn't fool a real apple pie lover. Being on a gluten-free diet, Ritz crackers are one of the things I miss most, both in my cooking and with tomato soup, peanut butter, just butter, and many other ways :>(.

              Glass of cold tomato juice + Ritz crackers = heaven.

                Peanut butter and strawberry preserves, or peanut butter and sweet pickles.

                  A cheese spread of some kind, usually cheddar with garlic or horseradish.

                          Roasted vegetable Ritz with rolled anchovy fillets and capers or anchovy paste. And of course Ritz Crackers with peanut butter (Krema brand).

                                    When I was a kid, I'd fold slices of Kraft cheese into quarters, and make "Big Macs".

                                      A little trivia for all youze Ritz Lovers:
                                      National Biscuit Company (now Nabisco) introduced Ritz Crackers for 19 cents a box in November, 1934 in Philadelphia and Baltimore. They were an immediate success.
                                      The company produced over 5 billion of them in 1935, which worked out to 40 crackers for every man, woman and child in the U.S.
                                      They are still a best seller today.
                                      EDIT: (God only knows how many BILLIONS have been sold since)

                                        Hey phishmonger, I, too, am a Ritz loving gluten free person. Try Glutino cheese crackers brushed with a tiny bit of melted butter and sprinkled with a little salt. It's not the same, but it's as close as I can get.

                                          My parents used to use them as a breading for their Italian Chicken Cordon Bleu (mozz and salami inside), and I have a friend who mixes crushed Ritz, clams, and mayo to make a really good hot dip.

                                            Ritz covered in crunchy peanut butter with a marshmallow on top. Stick it under the broiler (or toaster oven) until the tops of the marshmallows toast. Salty, sweet, gooey, crunchy goodness.
