Ritz Cracker Topping

This topping is a substitute for Toasted Bread Crumb Topping, and is easier and faster to make. It can be used to top Chicken and Rice Casserole or Baked Macaroni and Cheese. (also from The Best Make-Ahead Recipe)

Because the crackers are already crisp and salty, there is no need to toast them in the oven or season them with salt.

Follow the recipe for Toasted Bread Crumb Topping, substituting 50 Ritz crackers (1 1/2 sleeves) for the bread. Pulse with the butter to coarse crumbs, about 10 pulses. Toss the crumbs with the parsley and season with pepper. Set aside until needed.
