Recipe Tips
  • Food Facts
    Fresh mozzarella cheese can be found in the specialty cheese section of most grocery stores. It comes in a variety of forms, including small, medium and large balls, and sliced or unsliced logs. While we used the small balls, cut in half, to prepare this recipe, you can instead use any other form of mozzarella cheese to prepare this recipe.
  • Make it Easy
    These cracker sandwiches are equally delicious when prepared without melting the cheese. Just top 12 crackers with cheese, basil and tomatoes, then cover with remaining crackers.
  • Special Extra
    Top warm cheese-topped crackers evenly with 1 Tbsp. pesto before using to prepare cracker sandwiches as directed.
