I don't know about you, but if I could only eat one kind of food for the rest of my life it would be one-bite snacks. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good hearty meal as much as the next person but put me in a room with an appetizer tray full of fresh, healthy finger food and I'm a happy girl!


When you enjoy appetizers as much as I do it's important to find a way to enjoy them in a healthy way and in moderation. I love making my own one-bite snacks because that's always the best way to enjoy all that deliciousness while making a healthy choice. Which is why I'm so excited to be partnering with RITZ Crackers today to bring you these delicious Creamy Bruschetta Bites! They feature fresh, Italian flavours for the perfect appetizer or snack that's creamy and fresh, but also a healthy choice. 


I was so glad to discover that my local Wal Mart's cracker aisle was well stocked with RITZ Original Crackers!

 

 

They're also available in new Fresh Stacks, which make it easier to bring your RITZ wherever you go, and RITZ Fresh Stacks Ultimate Butter are also available now (while supplies last)!


And delicious RITZ crackers make a great base for these Creamy Bruschetta Bites because they're the perfect balance of tender and crispy and they're just a little bit savoury, pairing perfectly with the creamy garlic spread and tangy tomato bruschetta full of delicious herbs and spices.


Seriously...every bite is a flavour explosion! These Creamy Bruschetta Bites are my favourite snack right now and I know you're going to love them as much as I do!


Creamy Bruschetta Bites (makes about 5 servings, 5 pieces per serving)

You'll need:

4 ounces low-fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 clove garlic, very finely minced
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
a pinch each of sea salt and pepper

5 small Roma tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried thyme
a pinch of dried sage
1 clove garlic, very finely minced
a pinch each of sea salt and pepper

About 25 RITZ Crackers, original flavour

Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)



To make:

Add the cream cheese, minced garlic, basil, thyme, and salt and pepper to a bowl and mix everything together until well blended. Set the cream cheese mixture aside.

To make the bruschetta mixture, add the finely chopped tomatoes to a separate bowl along with the parsley, oregano, thyme, sage, minced garlic and salt and pepper. Toss everything together well until the spices are evenly distributed.

Assemble the bruschetta bites by spreading a little bit of the cream cheese mixture onto each of the Ritz Crackers. Add a spoonful of the bruschetta mixture on top of the cream cheese mixture, top with some fresh chopped parsley, and serve!
