Ok, I've finally found a Medifast food I don't like the soy crisps. Just had some of the white cheddar, and they were not great. I have a box of those and a box of the ranch. Are there any super-smart chefs out there that have suggestions for how to make something palatable with them...??..

You can trade them on I'm surpised you don't like them! I love the soy crisps! The apple cinnamon ones taste just like Cinnamon Toast Crunch!..

My suggestion is, if you're new (looks like you started this month?) save them. Your tastes will change and you might like them in a few weeks. I love the crisps, especially the white cheddar!..

Comment #2

I wish I could help, but I like those things TOO much to even touch 'em!.

I know some people have crunched them up to make crusts or "breading" type coatings for things.....

Comment #3

I think gatita is right, and actually most people seem to love those crisps so there probably aren't too many recipes to do anything else with them!!!.

Maybe you got a bad batch...or expected a different taste? To me they taste like cheddar popcorn!.

Hi Love them .. send them my way (lol).. how about crushing them and making a cheddar coating for some nice chicken breasts? I would bake them instead of fry though. Or add into a turkey mealoaf?..

I love the ranch crisps! They're almost too good. They also make great croutons for your salads and I also mix them with the Medifast chili. The ranch crisps have really saved the day for me when I'm craving crunch...

Ok, to be fair, I haven't tried the ranch ones yet, so I guess I jumped the gun. I'll give the cheddar another try; my first reaction was just that they had a bit of a... chemical taste to them I guess that would be the best way to describe it. But I love the idea of crushing them up and using them in a meatloaf, or as a 'breading' for chicken. Thanks, folks...

I crush them up and add them to the recipe when I'm making crackers out of the cream of chicken soup. It adds some "body" to the recipe..

2 pkts. cream of chicken soup.

1 pkt. soy crisps, crushed.

3/4 tsp. baking powder.

Garlic powder.

Mrs. Dash spicy.

1 Tbsp. Flax seed meal.

1/4 tsp. oil.

A little water (I don't measure).

Work the water into the dry ingredients until you have a stiff dough. Pat it out, using a wet hand, into 4 rounds about 3 inches across. Make sure you spray your pan - I line it with foil and then spray it. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes. You may have to flip it over and bake another couple minutes..

Usually I half the recipe and make one packet of soup into a cracker at a time (using 1/2 pkt. of crisps). I make one large "cracker" about the size of a tortilla, and after 6 minutes of baking I sprinkle with either Parmesan Cheese or Cheddar -then I bake 2 more minutes..

If you go wild and add a good size splash of egg beaters (being sure to subtract it from your lean), you get a puffier product that resembles a flat biscuit.... somewhat....

But after a few months on Medifast, the resemblance is definitely there!..

I use them (both the cheddar and the ranch) as "tortilla chips" to scoop and eat fresh homemade salsa. Fresh salsa only takes about 10 minutes to make. finely chop (I use a pampered chef food chopper for quick chopping) some tomatoes, fresh cilantro, and some green onion. Then add some fresh ground pepper, minced wet garlic, and cayenne pepper to taste. Then squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice in and stir. It is great just made, but if you let the flavors mingle in the fridge, it is even better. I count the salsa as part of my green and the soy crisps as a snack...
