Our Mini Family: 4 Sweet and Savory RITZ Cracker Recipes Perfect for Your Backyard BBQ


4 Sweet and Savory RITZ Cracker Recipes Perfect for Your Backyard BBQ





What better way to enjoy the warm weather than with some BBQ flavor on the dinner table?

Adam and I have been enjoying how nice it has been outside here in the valley, so we've taken our dinner and meal prep outdoors to the grill! There is nothing that says "summer" more than some delicious, sweet and savory barbecue bites, and summer is most definitely on its way! Just last week, we were enjoying temperatures in the 90s here in Phoenix! 

But as much as I'd like to dedicate a few hours every evening to spending time together outside chatting while we cook on the grill (because I absolutely love doing that with Adam), that is completely unrealistic with our rigorous work schedules. I always prefer recipes that I can throw together in a pinch because more often than not, I find myself with less than hour to prepare, cook, and enjoy a meal with my husband. 

Today, I'm sharing 4 different recipes and ways to incorporate RITZ Crackers into some sweet and savory cracker topping ideas for a backyard BBQ or even an easy, last-minute snack! For those who prefer something sweet, you'll enjoy the Strawberry Cheesecake Bites and Blueberry Cobbler Bites recipes below! More traditional BBQ lovers who love savory flavors will absolutely enjoy the Jalapeño Popper Topper and Pulled Pork and Cole Slaw Topper recipes!
