    Question Substitution for Uneeda Biscuits

    I am looking at a recipe for a crustless quiche I received on another message board. It uses 6 Uneeda Biscuits that are crumbled and mixed with the egg/cheese mixture. I've never seen this product in our stores. Do any of you know an equivalent? Thanks.

    Uneeda biscuits (i always loved that name! - goes back to the 1930's, at least) are like large, puffy, unsalted saltines--they're a very plain, dry cracker. you might still find them in the baby food aisle (like zweibacks). the closest thing, taste-wise, would be unsalted saltines, or oyster crackers (the little plain hexagonal things that go in soup). there's also a bisquit in the mexican section that looks similar.

    I googled the product and it appears to be a Nabisco product that can still be ordered online here but on this site it looks similar to a Ritz cracker so maybe you could sub that?

    Editing to say I could be wrong with the Ritz idea since I haven't had them. Aubergine probably has a better idea since she's had them.

    Annie's Crustless Quiche

    Here's the recipe. I didn't find Uneeda Biscuits or anything resembling them except unsalted saltines, so I used stone ground wheat crackers I already had in the pantry. I think their flavor could be detected in the quiche, but overall, the result was tasty. I would make it again. I used a 6 ounce jar of artichokes. 12 ounces just seemed like a lot of artichokes for an 8x8 dish. Next time, I won't forget to reserve the artichoke marinade and add it to the ingredients. Maybe that's why this was a little on the dry side. LOL. Anyway, it was very tasty, but heavy on the fat for a CL bulletin board.

    My mother used to make something she called "cheese crackers". I'm not sure of the exact measurement of ingredients but could find out if anyone's interested, but basically she mixed pot cheese, or farmer's cheese (I don't remember which) eggs, and sugar, made a sandwich of this between two Uneeda biscuits and fried them lightly in a little oil. They were great. I'm not sure it'll work, but maybe Carr's Water Crackers can be subbed for the Uneedas. Anyway, back to the quiche; thanks for posting the recipe, Judy. We love artichokes and I'll have to try this. To lighten up the fat a little, I'll try using egg substitute and Kraft 2% Cheddar Cheese.

    I think the reserved marinade from the artichokes adds the necessary liquid...
