Sun-Dried Tomato Appetizers

Sun-Dried Tomato Appetizers


  • 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) jar marinated 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)


  1. 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.

  2. Drain off the oil from your tomatoes.

  3. Spread a generous spoonful of cream cheese onto each cracker and top with a strip of marinated sundried tomato.

  4. Place onto a platter and garnish with strips of fresh basil leaves, if desired.
