Knäckebrot = Crisp Bread/Crackers from Bäckerei Bürck

Have you ever tried those Knäckebrot (crisp bread or crakers) that you could find in the different bread or snack sections of supermarkets in Germany? They have an array of flavors, and could be made of wheat, rye, sourdough, etc. They could have nuts, seeds, herbs and spices, etc. 

Here's from Wikipedia: "Crisp bread or hard bread is a flat and dry type of bread or cracker, containing mostly rye flour. Crisp breads are light and will keep fresh for a very long time. Crisp bread is a staple food and was for a long time considered a poor man's diet."

Well, in our household, Knäckebrot is a must. Our favorite are those with nuts. We would eat them for breakfast, for lunch, for dinner and we would have them in between meals, too.

And then a few days ago, my husband brought home a bag of freshly-made Knäckebrot from Bäckerei Bürck.

He was not finished 'pouring' the Knäckerbrot pieces into the bread basket, when I grabbed one to taste. I could already smell the delicious crackers from far away! I simply had to have one. 

They smell fresh, they look delicious, the texture full, and they are snappy to touch and wait until you bite into one... those Knäckebrot had me on that first taste. 

I would never have stopped munching on these crackers! Well, my girls managed to stop me. They reminded me that also wanted some themselves.

I tell you, you simply have to try these Knäckebrot from the Bäckerei Bürck. They are light and crispy. They are snappy and crunchy. The combination of cheese, sesame seeds and some other secret ingredients would make you crave for more. 

I am a cheese lover and this is the first time I have tasted cheese in crisp bread, and I really love it.

Although my husband brough home enough crisp bread that could have lasted the whole week, we managed to eat the last crispy pieces the next day. 

You know, I really thought they would go stale if we let them stand there a day longer. But of course, that's just an excuse. Admittedly, we could not resist those crispy bread. The Knäckerbrot remained as crispy and crunchy as the day before. Irresistible!

I told my husband to bring home a whole truck next time. He thought I was joking! 

I am serious. I would have eaten those crisp bread from Bäckerei Bürck everday. To quote Dr. Seuss's 'Sam I Am' book:

"Say, I would eat those crisp bread in a boat! And I would eat them with a goat. And I will eat them in the rain. And in the dark. And on a train. And in a car. And in a tree. They are so good so good you see!

So I will eat those crisp bread in a box. And I will eat them with a fox. And I will eat them in a house.  And  I will eat them with a mouse. And I will eat them here and there. Say! I will eat them anywhere!"

Not an exaggeration though, I would really eat them everywhere! 
So if you are anyway near Weinheim in Germany, don't forget to pass by Bäckerei Bürck for a their savory Knäckebrot. Those crisp bread would be worth your trip!
