4th of July Garlic and Fine Herbs Cheese Ritz Appetizers

27 Jun

Hi Everyone!

This year we wanted to focus on one of our favorite parts of our annual 4th of July BBQ: Appetizers!

We serve several types of hot and cold appetizers throughout the afternoon to get everyone ready for the BBQ entrées.  But today we want to tell you about one of our favorites because it is so delicious and super easy!

We came across the Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs Cheese a few years ago on a whim. We wanted a yummy snack for a football Sunday but we didn’t feel like making our usual nachos, so after grabbing our Tostito’s and lamenting the process of making the nachos, we saw the Boursin cheese and decided to give it a go.  It went so well with the Tostito’s that we started experimenting with it and ever since we have used it for a number of recipes including this one as well as our delicious Broccoli and Cheese Soup that we will share in a future post.

We love to prepare all of our own food, however, when you have many guests over for a big party it is difficult to make everything yourself and spend time with your guests.  With this recipe your guests will think you spent hours on such a delicious treat when in reality it is very simple to make.
