Hello….my name is Jill…and I am a snacker. As in, I would much rather eat 8 to 10 small “meals” a day than 3 large ones.
I just feel better and work better this way. Don’t ask me why.
So with that in mind…you can see why this post about Triscuit Toppings is right up my alley.
I have to chuckle at how it came about though. Sometimes I find “inspiration” in the ODDEST places! Take today…I was sitting at my desk working (and snacking on cheese and crackers) when I happen to notice these rather delicious-looking morsels on the back of the Triscuit box. Sure beats what I’m eating! (Although the Boursin cheese spread with garlic and herbs is pretty delicious in its own right sittin on top of a Triscuit.)
Upon closer inspection I notice the website Triscuit.com is listed with directions to go there for recipes. Oh I am on it! What I find is a goldmine of tempting Triscuit snack creations!
There is one SMALL problem with these “Triscuit SMALL Plates” however…it’s actually redirecting me to a website all about WINE PAIRINGS with the different types of Triscuits. (I think there are about 347 difference varieties now!) Well, as some of you may know who have read my “About Me” page, I am very blessed to be 4+ years clean and sober and hanging out on a wine tasting site is just tempting fate. :-)
So, I quickly download the free printable .pdf files and got the heck outta dodge! Whew! I came THIS CLOSE to falling off the wagon for your people! That’s how much I love all of you! lol. Of course I’m teasing….but I would do almost anything for you guys (and gals)….almost. ;-)
So….after all that….I present to you my favorite of the bunch! I think there were probably 20-25 in all.
Don’t those sounds perfectly delicious??? I can’t wait to try some of these on my favorite Triscuit crackers. What are my favorite Triscuit flavors? Well, I’m glad you asked! ;-)
Here they are in order of preference:
That being said…I haven’t been able to find the Roasted Garlic in any store I’ve looked in for well over a month now! I’m thinking I’m not the ONLY one who considers them their favorite.
