I have an obsession with bite-sized appetizers layered with toast, cheese, herbs and vegetables. I love the different combinations. These bites are perfect for Super Bowl Sunday. Fun, tasty, and ready to please a crowd.
Football season is awesome. Excitement, filled with some of the best people watching around. These Cream Cheese Sun-dried Tomato and Basil Bites are perfect to lay out on a party platter. They’ll be devoured in an instant. Use crostini or any toasted bread. Sun-dried tomato, basil and cream cheese spreads are actually quite popular. So, why not step it up a notch? Layer the three ingredients separately, and taste how much better these are than a spread.
You can also set these out on Valentine’s Day as a cute filler before a meal. Pair them with an intense wine, such as a Riesling. The sun-dried tomatoes go quite well with a bold, yet sweet, white wine.
Impress your party animals with these cream cheese sun-dried tomato and basil bites. I can’t wait to eat them. The game will be fun to watch, and these will be fun to eat. Beware, however. These appetizers will disappear in an instant. So, make a lot. I’d say about…..
