Tasty Tuesday: Ritz Cracker Mini Muffulettas

Tamara made these for our November meeting & I *may* have gone back for seconds. They would be the perfect little appetizer for a Christmas party or family dinner!

The Ingredients:

  • 5 tbsp cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tbsp green olives with pimentos, well drained & finely chopped
  • 12 slices Swiss cheese (approximately 1/4 lb), cut into thirds
  • 12 slices deli ham (1/4 lb), cut into thirds
  • 12 slices salami (1/4 lb), cut into thirds
  • 12 slices provolone cheese (1/4 lb), cut into thirds
  • 72 Ritz crackers
  • 36 green olive slices
  • toothpicks

The Directions:

As written, this recipe makes 36 sandwiches. 

Mix cream cheese & chopped olives until well-blended. Fold each cheese & meat slice into thirds. Cover each of 36 crackers with Swiss cheese & ham, then top 1/2 tsp cream cheese mixture. Add salami & provolone. Top with a second cracker & garnish with a slice of green olive. Use a toothpick to secure.

*Note: if you want crisp crackers, make these the day of. If you make them the day before, the crackers are a little bit softened. Yummy either way!
