If you’ve been following along with my posts this summer, then you’ll know I’ve been enjoying lots of Cracker Barrel Cheese! From visiting Chicago & NYC to recipe developing here in Nashville, I have learned a lot about cheese! So I’m excited to share another post with you guys for those times when guests pop-in unannounced and you find yourself rummaging through your pantry trying to pull together something presentable, sound familiar? Here are 3 easy party appetizers using high-quality Cracker Barrel Cheese and items that many of us have in our pantries!
These appetizers are “build your own” which lets you visit with guests while they enjoy a delicious cheese plate. Here are some items to add to your cheese plate for these appetizers.
Cracker Barrel Cheeses (Mediterranean Herb, Aged Reserve)
Sliced Green Apple
Dried Cranberries (or other fruit)
Tomato & Herb Tart: Stack Cracker Barrel Mediterranean Herb cheese on a cracker. Top that with either a piece or arugula or baby greens. Finish with a sliced tomato and a pinch of cracked black pepper.
Arugula & Honey Cheese Squares: Top a cracker with Cracker Barrel Aged Reserve and arugula. Drizzle with honey. *Note* This is one of my favorite snacks and always served at my parties!
Apple & Herb Cheese Bites: Top a thin slice of green apple with Cracker Barrel Mediterranean Herb and finish with a dried cranberry and cashew nut. Almonds or raisins would also be delicious alternatives here.
