Who doesn’t love a simple, delicious appetizer? It’s the perfect set-up for a casual get together with friends– a plate of apps paired with your favorite bottle of wine.
Just like many of you, it’s back-to-school time in our lives, and we’re craving some downtime this weekend. I’d love to just kick back & relax with friends in the backyard. Easy, effortless… that’s what we’re feeling right now.
And the perfect snack for this chill time? These super simple, yet so flavorful Whipped Goat Cheese + Fig topped Breton crackers .
Our favorite right now are the Breton Artisanal Cranberry and Ancient Grains. They’re perfect straight out of the box or with seasonal toppings. I love the slightly sweet taste, it goes so well with the tangy goat cheese.
Breton crackers are made with wholesome, real ingredients, which makes them the perfect pairing with fresh toppings, like these figs.
Figs just say *fall* to me, don’t you think?
The prep for these apps couldn’t be simpler. Whip up 2 parts goat cheese to 1 part cream cheese in a mixer. Spread on Breton crackers, then add fig jam and fig slices. Done.
Your friends will love the texture of the creamy goat cheese with the crunch of the crackers. I would leave a tray of plain Breton Artisanal Cranberry and Ancient Grains out just to snack on as well, they’re that good.
Our lives feel non-stop these days, but I like to make time to catch-up with friends and family. Everyone benefits… we get adult conversation & the kids get to run around with their friends. Keep it easy, and hosting will feel like a break, not just another item on the calendar.
For me, keeping Breton crackers in my pantry makes it easy to put together delicious snacks at a moment’s notice. With all the great tasting varieties, I can choose one that will pair well with seasonal toppings. Totally effortless.
