Rosemary Oat Cakes with poppy-seeds
Rosemary Oat Cakes with poppy-seeds: a pretty little cocktail cracker

Here are some lovely little Rosemary Oat Cakes - this time made with poppy-seeds. Originally, I made these savory little cocktail crackers with sesame seeds. The poppy-seeds are smaller, which helps them adhere better to the dough - particularly when slicing through. The flavour and visual contrast the poppy-seeds provide is also pretty special :-)

Lovely round cockltail crackers: oats and olive oil make these rich and flakey.

I came up with these lovely little oat crackers to satisfy my craving for crunchy savory things. These are somewhat similar to Scottish oat cakes - only made with olive oil and ground seeds instead of butter/lard. Rosemary adds a fragrant Mediterranean touch, and sesame seeds round out the rich nutty flavor.

These pretty little rounds make great cocktail crackers and work wonderfully on a cheese plate. These are fantastic as is, and even better topped with:

  • any good cheese - especially chevre
  • smoked salmon
  • wine jellies, marmalades, jams
  • nut butters
  • honey
