This is just the type of thing I love to crunch on with a glass of wine. I think they have enough going on to be enjoyed on their own, but you could serve them with a spoonful of fig jam or maybe a white bean dip if you feel so inclined.
  • ½ c. All-Purpose Flour
  • ½ c. Cornmeal
  • ½ tsp. Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
  • ¼ tsp. Black Pepper, coarsely ground
  • 1 tsp. Minced Rosemary
  • 1 c. Buttermilk
  • 2 Tbsp. Honey
  • ½ c. Walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • ½ c. Blue Cheese, crumbled
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line an 8"x4" loaf pan with parchment paper and lightly oil.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking soda, salt, pepper, and rosemary.
  3. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together buttermilk and honey until blended.
  4. Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and incorporate, using just a few quick strokes. Fold in the walnuts and blue cheese and pour into the prepared loaf pan. Bake until lightly golden, about 35 minutes. Cool the loaf completely (in fact, refrigerating for several hours or overnight will make it easier to slice) before proceeding.
  5. Preheat oven to 300°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Slice the cool loaf as thinly as you can without the slices falling apart. Place the slices on the prepared pans and bake 15-20 minutes, flip and bake another 15-20 minutes on the other side until deeply golden and very crisp. The baking time will vary, based on the thickness of your slices, so watch carefully. Cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
