Artichoke dip is among the most popular appetizer menu items in restaurants and for parties. It can be served in many different ways and is commonly offered in a bread bowl. Since artichoke dip recipes vary, there are different options for which crackers and wafers to serve with the dish.
Water crackers are brittle, hard, thin wafers served with cheese or dips. They get their name by being baked using only water and flower, unlike crackers made with shortening, butter and other fatty products. Water crackers are good with dips because the flavor is bland and allows the taste of the dip to be more prominent.
Soda crackers are light and crispy crackers with a variety of uses. They get their name for their signature ingredient, baking soda. Soda crackers are lightly salted and can bring out the flavors of different spreads and dips. They can be found on the shelves of any supermarket and are usually sold in large quantities.
Crispy Cracker Bread
Crispy cracker bread is a thin, uneven crisp made of bread and used in a cracker form. Originated in Sardinia, the crackers can be homemade or found in a local supermarket and comes in plain or with different flavors and seasonings. Since the crackers have little nooks, they are ideal with dips and can add some additional flavor with different seasonings.
