With school just around the corner again, it’s time to start planning for some energizing after school snack recipes for your kids. The perfect treat should be able to hold your hungry students over until dinnertime. For a light meal that’s sure to please your little ones, whip up one of these delicious post-school snack recipes!
Grilled Cheese Bites
For a fun twist on the classic cheese sandwich, try making these miniature grilled cheeses. Start by cutting up large slices delicious cheese, such as our Smoked Gouda, Farmhouse Cheddar, or Parmesan Herb Blend. Then, in a shallow dish, crush up a handful of our Olive Oil & Rosemary Crackers and mix the cracker crumbs with Italian seasoning and pepper. In a second bowl, use a whisk to beat an egg until fluffy.
Next, coat your cheese in the egg mixture before rolling the slices in the cracker crumbs. Then, place the cheese slices on a grill pan and cook until slightly melted and gooey. For extra flavor, serve with warm marinara for dipping.
For a tiny bite that packs in a ton of flavor, make a cracker club sandwich. Start by slicing our HoneyGold Ham and our Smoked Cheddar Blend into small pieces. Then, simply layer the ham and cheese onto our crackers along with a dab of our Sweet Hot Mustard.
Cheese and Fruit Stacks
Cheese and fruit are a perfect pairing your kids will be sure to enjoy. For a fun DIY snack, cut up an assortment of cheeses along with a selection of fresh fruits, such as Red Bartlett Pears, Fuji Apples, Yellow Nectarines, and White Peaches. Finish this healthy platter off with a heaping helping of our crackers.
After you’re done preparing, you can show your kids how they can make their own snacks by topping their crackers with a variety of cheese and fruit. Your kids will have a blast discovering their favorite combinations.
