Bruschetta Crackers

Pin It
Bruschetta is a simple snack that is packed with flavor. The bread is usually toasted and then fresh tomatoes are mixed with a variety of different ingredients and scooped on top. The freshness of the topping makes these perfect for a hot summer day.

My usual go-to has all the necessary components: tomatoes, olives, basil and cheese. These little Ritz cracker bruschetta bites definitely stood up to my taste test. They were very easy to put together and using crackers makes the toasted bread part a lot easier. The Italian dressing gives them a nice flavor and the use of two different cheeses makes them gooey and delicious. The fact that they are bite-size makes them perfect for get-togethers, potlucks or a quick snack on a busy day. I made these again on a separate occasion using canned diced tomatoes with green chilies and a Mexican cheese blend, and it was a nice little spicy twist. Enjoy!
