Caprese Cracker Bites
Spring is in the air. FINALLY. Can I get a halleluiah? It’s been a long hard COLD winter and I’m looking forward to all things spring and summer. Including entertaining. We love to have people over all year round but especially when the weather is warmer and the days are longer. Having friends over doesn’t mean things have to be fussy.
I’m not into fussy dinners. They’re nice every once in a while (you know when I want to be stressed out to the max because that’s what ends up happening) but for the most part I like jeans and t-shirt kind of entertaining.
That means easy appetizers and a dinner that I can finish cooking while chatting with my friends and there will more than likely be a bottle of wine involved, because well it’s me. One of my favorite spring and summer flavors is CAPRESE. I love to garden and I grow a container and raised bed garden every summer.
I’m beyond excited to get my garden growing now that the big freeze is over so I can have fresh tomatoes and basil at the ready. There is simply nothing like a vegetable you grow yourself.
A fun way to serve a Caprese inspired appetizer is on top of a Triscuit cracker. You know the snack cracker that you know and love. While they’re delicious straight out of the box, they’re made for more than JUST snacking and this Cracker Caprese Bite is a delicious example of that. They’re super simple to throw together.
We’ve used burrata cheese (if you’ve tried this you know it’s ah-mazing if you haven’t go now and grab some, you won’t be sorry) instead of the traditional mozzarella. It’s spreadable and perfect for the top of a Triscuit. If you can’t find burrata (and if so I’m so very sorry because BURRATA) you can absolutely substitute mozzarella.
We suggest a drizzle of balsamic glaze on top, but a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil would be lovely as well. Both are optional and you know how much we love options.
Speaking of OPTION, follow Triscuit on Pinterest for more delicious ways to enjoy Triscuit crackers. They’re deliciously simple.
