My Grandma has told stories of making them into "Mock Apple Pie" during the Depression, but I am a little skeptical/horrified by the idea!

Here's something fun to do: soak the crackers in water until they're a bit mushy (the correct mushiness: soft, but still held together slightly - tricky!), then bake 'em at 350 for 8 minutes or so. They puff up and no longer resemble crackers! Crunchy fun for all! Sprinkle some parmesan or herbs on top.

I've only heard of using Ritz crackers for the apple pie, it's actually pretty good!

My mom crumbles them and puts them on casseroles.

You can have a little bit of fun with your friends/family too and do the Saltine Cracker Challenge... Hee hee... Try to see if anyone can eat 6 crackers within one minute, without anything to drink and swallowing all 6. See what you find out...

Oh and at the bottom of this page you can find a receipe finder:

From what my boss told me Soda Crackers are Saltine Crackers, I looked it up on the internet and didn't get very much info on Soda Crackers.

Hope that helps.

Try looking up saltine toffee on google.
It is a really awesome, quick, cheap candy. It goes something like this:
LINE THE COOKIE SHEET WITH FOIL!!! (very important - learn from my mistakes Smiley )
then melt a cup of butter or margarine (I've used both) and a cup of brown sugar together over low heat.  Boil for 3 mins.
Put one layer of saltines in the cookie sheet. You can break them to make them fit puzzle style if needed.
Pour the butter/sugar mixture over the crackers. Push the crackers down with a spoon to make sure they are covered in the mixture. Then carefully (molten sugar does NOT feel good on the arms) put into a 400 deg oven for 5 mins.
Pull it out of the oven, sprinkle with chocolate chips and let it cool.  Then break it up and try not go into sugar shock.

This post just reminded me of one of my favourite treats a family friend used to make for us when we were kids. It actually originally used Ritz crackers, but saltine crackers work in a pinch. You basically line a cookie sheet with crackers, then you melt some chocolate in a double boiler and coat all the crackers with a layer of chocolate, then freeze them, or refrigerate until hardened. They are so surprisingly good. The salty, sweet and crunchy mixes so well together, and they last forever in the freezer for when you're craving something a little sweet. So good.

My mom used to take a saltine cracker and make a 'nest' of tuna, and then fill the nest with cottage cheese. They were called birdsnests, the cracker being the branch the nest was on, the tuna the nest, and the cottage cheese the eggs. I would only eat them if they didn't have the 'eggs' because I hated (and still hate) cottage cheese, but the kids she nannied loved them.
