Ahh, it’s summertime and party time! These days seem to be a whirlwind of showers, graduations, weddings, birthdays, recitals – lots of celebrations that include feeding people.

I don’t know about you but I never seem to have many “go-to” appetizers but then this recipe challenge came to the rescue. Breton Crackers is sponsoring this month’s Recipe ReDux contest and challenging our bloggers to create simple hors d’oeuvre recipes using 5 ingredients or less.

So, I got try their new Artisanal Sweet Potato and Ancient Grains crackers, which not only are light and crispy but wow on the taste! They’re made with wheat, quinoa and rye and have pieces of sweet potato baked into each cracker – they’re pretty darn delicious on their own and are a great base for both savory and sweet bites.

After fiddling around with a few ideas, I settle on a mini salad on each cracker (but now I have tons of ideas for future cracker appetizers thanks to this contest!)
