Cream cheese blended with BBQ sauce and spread on our favorite crackers. Topped with sliced cherry tomatoes and crumbled bacon, entertaining couldn't be easier!
- 4 slices of bacon
- 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
- 3 tablespoons BBQ sauce (sweet is best)
- 20 cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced or halved
- 20 crackers
- 1/4 cup shredded lettuce or julienned basil leaves
- Fresh ground black pepper if desired
Cook or bake the bacon until crisp. Set aside on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Once cooled, chop into small pieces and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and BBQ sauce and blend until smooth.
When ready to serve, spread the cream cheese mixture on top of each cracker, then garnish with sliced tomatoes, crumbled bacon and shredded lettuce or basil leaves. Top with fresh ground black pepper and serve immediately.
We used Breton Artisanal Cranberry and Ancient Grains Crackers for this recipe, with great results!
We use uncured, Applewood Smoked Bacon for this recipe.
These Breton Artisanal Cranberry and Ancient Grains Crackers are also great with our favorite Southern-Style Pimento Cheese spread. I can’t wait to make this Savory Smoked Salmon Cheesecake again and serve it with these delicious crackers. The cranberry flavor really comes through and adds a wonderful depth to these appetizers.
Thanks so much for supporting the brands that keep us in the SRFD kitchen! We only feature products that we love, and hope you love them too.
