Holiday Appetizers Starring Nutmeg and Cinnamon Triscuit

nutmeg and cinnamon triscuit

My love of Triscuits is in almost direct correlation with my love of cheese and finger-foods. I grew up in a family of grazers so a box of crackers and a charcuterie board were the ways dinner manifested themselves, no one complained. 

Back then it was the original Triscuit cracker. Made with this perfect mix of whole wheat, salt and oil you could let your taste buds do the talking and put anything your heart desired on it. Over the years, Triscuit has introduced new flavours but still continues to provide a crisp and crunchy baked cracker that does not buckle under the pressure of heat or toppings.

If you’re looking for a great make-ahead appetizer for a holiday party Triscuit is the way to go, and their limited-edition Nutmeg and Cinnamon flavour (available now and only for the holidays) is a great choice.

This Sweet Potato & Apple topper recipe takes some prep work ahead of time to make the mashed sweet potatoes and glazed pecans but you can make ahead and take 10 minutes to put the appetizer together when you need them. Do the prep today and be prepared for unexpected holiday drop-ins during the week.

Double-Berry & Goat Cheese Topper

This sweet and creamy combination could be whipped together right out of the fridge. I don’t want you to judge me but you can totally whip this up in your parked car if you forgot to make something for a party you’re headed to. Grab an inexpensive plate from the local dollar store and get to work.

 Nutmeg and Cinnamon Triscuits

When you pop a Nutmeg and Cinnamon Triscuit in your mouth you’re hit the warmth and slight nuttiness of the spices but also the saltiness that Triscuit is known for. When you look for a base for either a sweet or savoury topping, these crackers can really go both ways, plus the whole Triscuit line is now Non-GMO Project verified.

These recipes are ones that have been provided by the Triscuit kitchen and are available on their website. You can find these and many others by visiting Triscuit.

    I am not sure if I would like the flavour of these Triscuits just on their own. But, the two appetizer recipes would definitely get me to try them.
