TUESDAY RECIPE: TRISCUIT BRUSCHETTA BITES

Triscuit bruschetta bites are a refreshing, inexpensive, healthy snack that can be made even while in a rush. They’re perfect for college students!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 small tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. reduced-fat Italian dressing
  • 40 TRISCUIT Crackers
  • 1 pack of reduced fat cream cheese

Making It:

  • Combine the tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, green onions, and dressing
  • Spread a thin layer of cream cheese over each cracker
  • Top the crackers with the tomato mixture

Tips:

  • Only make as many as you would like to eat. They do not store well. Because they cannot be stacked on top of one another, they would take up a lot of fridge space.
  • Switch up some ingredients! Use a different type of cracker, if you have one you prefer. Or try some vegetable cream cheese to give the snack more excitement
  • Throw some garlic salt into your tomato mixture! Garlic adds flavor to any dish, don’t be too generous though. Adding too much salt will defeat the purpose of a healthy snack.
