Prosciutto and Pea Crackers Appetizer

by Tonya Staab

Triscuit crackers topped with fresh peas, prosciutto, microgreens, and feta are a delicious light appetizer for entertaining at home.

Disclosure: I created my Triscuit Prosciutto and Pea Crackers as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #TriscuitSnackoff

Triscuit and Martha Stewart have partnered up this summer for the Triscuit Summer Snackoff Challenge (which I’ll share more details about below).

I was asked to give you a little inspiration and create a topping for Triscuit crackers using peas, which is this week’s featured ingredient. So, here are my Prosciutto and Pea Crackers. They make a tasty little appetizer, that are perfect for entertaining.

Ingredients

  • Triscuit - original crackers
  • 1/2 cup English peas 
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese (crumbled)
  • 3 strips prosciutto (sliced into quarters)
  • 1 tbs white cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1 tsp champagne vinaigrette
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • Pea sprouts (garnish)
  • Freshly cracked pepper

Instructions

  1. Cook the peas in a pot of boiling water (I prefer them firmer and not too soft). Drain and set them aside to cool while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl combine the cooled peas with the champagne vinaigrette and toss to combine.
  3. Transfer to a mortar and pestle and mash the peas a little, leaving a few full peas in the mix. Pour back into the bowl and add the feta and cheddar cheese, combining carefully so that the mix is nice and chunky.
  4. Brush a little olive oil onto each cracker. Top with a slice of prosciutto and then a teaspoon of the pea and feta mixture. Add a little freshly cracked pepper and top with a couple of pea sprouts.

I love Triscuits, Prosciutto, and Peas individually, and while I probably would never have thought to combine them, I’m so happy you did because it looks and sounds delicious. I’m looking forward to giving it a try! 🙂 And inspired to get creative with #Triscuit! 😉
By the way, I just discovered your blog via a #TeamTriscuit #TriscuitSnackoff link on #Crowdtap. I love what I’ve seen sofar – your layout and design are so nice, your writing is awesome, and your photos are beautiful – and I’m excited to explore it more. 🙂
