Prep Time: 10 min Total Time: 35 min Yield: 8 Serving
Nutrition Facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
40 butter flavored crackers (such as Ritz)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese or 1 (8 ounce) package neufchatel cheese, at room temperature
1 (16 ounce) jarmarinated sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil (the kind I tried had Italian seasonings in the oil already)
1 tablespoon italian seasoning (optional)
1/2 cup fresh basil leaf, shredded, garnish (optional)
If your sundried tomatoes do not already have Italian seasoned herbs in their oil, you will need to first stir in 1 Tbsp of Italian seasoning blend to your tomatoes, then cover and chill overnight.
Drain off the oil from your tomatoes.
Spread a generous spoonful of cream cheese onto each cracker and top with a strip of marinated sundried tomato.
Place onto a platter and garnish with strips of fresh basil leaves, if desired.© Jim Catanich

"Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole Recipe and Video - My mom used to make this easy recipe every Thanksgiving when I was little. We kids could never get enough! It was our very favorite Thanksgiving vegetable. If you have children, or have some coming to visit you as guests this Thanksgiving, I guarantee that they will eat (and enjoy) this veggie dish! Even though I rarely cook with canned condensed soups, I still make this yummy broccoli casserole during the holiday season. It's fabulous with a Christmas ham and potatoes au gratin too. (Note: Be sure to use sharp Cheddar cheese for a nice full flavor.) Mmmmmmm!" - chef john
