Cheesy Sausage and Sun-dried Tomato Bites #TriscuitRealFoods


I fondly remember cheese, sausage and Triscuit crackers on the appetizer table of every party my family ever hosted since I was a child.  So, naturally when we were asked to partner with Triscuit we were extremely excited!

Triscuit crackers have been a part of our parties and also our snack bags since as far back as I can remember.  They have always been a great cracker to add toppings to because they are nice and firm and they have a fabulous crunch.  I was thrilled to pick up the latest line of products; Triscuit Real Foods.  They are made with foods like brown rice, red beans and sweet potatoes.

My favorite is the Triscuit Brown Rice Tomato & Sweet Basil!  Such fabulous flavor.  I decided to put a spin on the sausage, cheese and cracker tray that my family would serve as a child.  I created the most perfect appetizer yet.  Cheesy Sausage and Sun-dried Tomato Bites made with Triscuit baked right in.

These bites are made with Tomato and Sweet Basil Triscuit crackers baked right into the perfectly portioned bite-sized appetizers.  Loaded with sausage, cheese and sun-dried tomatoes these is a perfect twist on the standard cheese and crackers.



======================================================================

Cheesy Sausage and Sun-dried Tomato Bites
makes 48 bites

1 box Triscuit Brown Rice Tomato & Sweet Basil Crackers
1 (8 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese
1 pound hot Italian sausage
¼ cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil
4 large eggs
½ cup milk
olive oil spray
6 slices Provolone cheese, cut into 1/8ths

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Remove casings from sausage and cook until browned, in a skillet over medium-high heat.

Prepare 2 mini muffin tins with olive oil spray.  Set aside.

Meanwhile, crush Triscuit in a blender or food processor until you have a crumb mixture.  Alternately you can smash them in a plastic bag using a mallet.

In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients.  Stir until well combined.  Add mixture to pans, about 1 ½ tablespoons in each cup.  Press mixture into pan.

Bake 15-20 minutes until bites are lightly browned.  Set cheese on top of each bite.  Allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes.  Serve and enjoy!

A new take on an old favorite. Enjoy the new line of Triscuit baked with whole grain brown rice and wheat, some with real food ingredients like sweet potato or red beans.​

  1. Alexis brought home a couple of the new varieties and while I liked them, for me it is hard to beat the original. I guess nostalgia is a key ingredient ;)
