The weather is warming up and the need for a quick appetizer to take to an outdoor party is a must! Today I am sharing my recipe for Fancy Caprese Bruschetta Apps with ingredients that you can keep stocked in the fridge for any parties that happen to pop up. This also makes a great appetizer for a BBQ at home or if you are having a few friends over for drinks and laughs out on the porch.
I don't know what it is about mini foods, but they always look so cute and appetizing! If you're looking for a cracker you can trust, you'll want to top your mini appetizer with RITZ Original Fresh Stacks! The serving size is 5 crackers, just the perfect amount to fit on this napkin!
How to Make Fancy Caprese Bruschetta Apps
This appetizer is really easy and you can even leave the toppings in little bowls and your guests can make their own crackers and use the toppings they prefer!
For the crackers, I shopped at my local Walmart and found a display of the RITZ Original Fresh Stacks and Ultimate Butter Fresh Stacks near the Crackers aisle. I picked up a box of each variety, since I was eager to try the RITZ Ultimate Butter Fresh Stacks.
I decided to use the RITZ Original Fresh Stacks for this recipe. You will need cherry tomatoes, mozzarella balls (the mini ones) and either basil leaves or a basil paste. You can also top the cracker with a tiny splash of balsamic dressing.
First, you'll need a plain cracker to start as the bottom layer.
Then, spread the basil paste on the cracker or layer one basil leaf on the bottom of the cracker.
Top the basil paste/leaf with a few of the chopped cherry tomatoes.
Add a few of the mozzarella pieces.
Drizzle with a little bit of balsamic dressing and you have yourself some attractive and tasty crackers!
For my guests, I wanted to leave out the toppings and then I could easily cover them with saran wrap when the party was over. They make a great snack for the next day!
These Fancy Caprese Bruschetta Apps are always a huge hit! Aren't simple recipes the best? Next I want to try a strawberry and feta cracker combo! There are just so many possibilities with RITZ Original Fresh Stacks!
RITZ Original Fresh Stacks and the Limited Edition RITZ Ultimate Butter Fresh Stacks make a great cracker choice for appetizer recipes. The Fresh Stacks make it easier to bring your RITZ on-the-go for picnics, family gatherings or for parties. RITZ Original Fresh Stacks are great on the go!
