Graham Crackers with Cream Cheese

Cream Cheese Graham Crackers

Some things are so simple.  I swear I should have thought of this idea years ago.  But, no.

Instead, my seventh-grader introduced me to this graham crackers with cream cheese creation that they made in Consumer Literacy (i.e. Home Economics).  Last night he asked me if we had any cream cheese at the house, and of course I said yes.

Cream cheese is one of the staples on my grocery list.  I love cooking with cream cheese, especially for dips and desserts.

So, last night we made a yummy snack of graham crackers with cream cheese.  Now, in class they topped these with strawberries, which sounds perfectly delightful.  However, my son preferred his without strawberries (and we didn’t have any), so that is how we ate them.  And they were GOOD.

I decided to add an extra nutritious little health kick to my graham crackers when I made them again.  Bananas.  B.A.N.A.N.A.S.  Can’t say that word (or type it) without that song coming to mind. Cream Cheese Graham Crackers

Bananas rule.  But, even if you don’t like bananas, you can rock graham crackers with cream cheese.  With strawberries, raspberries, a flavored cream cheese, or maybe a little bit of honey.  Or chocolate.  Or…

You get the picture.  The possibilities of jazzing up this plain ole little graham cracker are wide open.  And so simple to make.

My son had this for breakfast.  Minus the bananas and milk.  Yeah, he’s on an iced coffee kick.  Or hot mocha.  I don’t get the fascination with coffee, but it’s one of those battles I skip.  Almost a teenager and all.

    That sounds so good, especially with hot chocolate. I used to love eating Ritz crackers with cream cheese when I was a kid.

      We’ve always done Ritz crackers with peanut butter. Somehow I never got the cream cheese and cracker idea going. Hot cocoa sounds like a great compliment to this treat.
