Quick & Easy Appetizers (no bake)

Pin It

With the wonderful warmer months peeking out at us from just around the corner...
Entertaining comes to mind.  I don't know about you, but I absolutely adore entertaining at my home during the warmer months.  Well, heck anytime, but during the warmer months, out on the deck, surrounded by a pitcher or two, twinkle lights and candles?  Yes!

We don't have to get fancy or complicated to make amazing appetizers.  Heck, we don't even have to break out a baking sheet.  These little gems are absolutely delectable!
You have nice crackers (I used gluten free seed crackers, delish), a nice hummus, deli turkey & a few gorgeous slices of baby swiss.  I know!!  You don't even have to follow the recipe, you can make your own gorgeous creations... 

I know, I love to inspire, I'm just silly that way.  *grin*

Ready for the recipe?  Here we go;

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 0
Yield: 12 appetizers

24 crackers of your choice
1/3 cup hummus (I used my own own roasted red pepper)
4 slices honey turkey deli meat (cut in 3rd's = total 12 pieces)
3 slices baby Swiss cheese (cut in 4th's = total 12 pieces)
*optional* 1 medium size roasted red pepper cut in 12 pieces

-On a flat surface, gather your ingredients.  Cut the deli meat and cheeses.

-Take one cracker, spread about 1 tsp or so of hummus.
At this point you can add your small slice of red pepper right in the center of the cracker.  I don't know, it just looks pretty and all... you know I'm about pretty!

-Cover with a portion of deli meat and top with the Swiss cheese portion.

-Add a tsp or so of hummus to another cracker and place the cracker hummus side down onto the appetizer.
Continue till all crackers and ingredients are used.

-Place on a pretty platter, wrap and keep in refrigerator till ready to use.

See, didn't I tell you really simple and easy?  You have enough time to make a nice pitcher of whatever you like too...
Don't forget my invite!!

Till next time!
