Triscuit Pizza Nachos
Having my son out for the summer means I have to get a little more creative at lunch time. During the school year, I can easily send him with a peanut butter sandwich like the other kids, and he doesn’t have anyone to complain to come lunchtime. But with me right in the next room, and a pantry full of goodies, my son is insesntent that I make him something exciting everyday for lunch.
I also try to make us food that’s somewhat healthy, so this is what I came up with today, a platter of Triscuit nachos. I made them pizza nachos to make them even more kid friendly. What little kid wouldn’t love these?
For the sauce, I used pre-made marinara, cream and parmesan to make an incredibly tasty creamy tomato sauce. Then I topped that with lots of mozzarella cheese, bell peppers, onions and pepperoni. After a short time under the broiler to melt the cheese, I garnished these nachos with some green onions before serving.
We’ve eaten Triscuit crackers for as long as I can remember. I learned a long time ago that Triscuits are one of the few truely healthy crackers. They’ve been around forever, and they are one of the few package products that you can feel good about serving your family. Original triscuits have just three ingredients – wheat, oil and salt!
Now Triscuit is baking up their famous crackers with more fun flavor and tons of nutrition. Their new crackers are baked up with real foods like sweet potatoes, brown rice and red beans so you can still feel good about serving them to your family. And they come in 5 fabulous new flavors!
Triscuit Pizza Nachos
For the sauce:
1/2 cup marinara sauce (from jarred)
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
For the nachos:
24 TRISCUIT Crackers
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons chopped green bell pepper
2 tablespoons chopped red bell pepper
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped peperoni
3 tablespoons chopped green onion
Heat oven broiler to high. Combine all ingredients for sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook for 4 - 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
Arrange TRISCUIT crackers on a broiler safe platter. Pour sauce over crackers and top with cheese, bell peppers, onions and pepperoni. Place nachos under broiler in oven for just a few minutes, or until cheese has melted.
Garnish with green onions before serving.
A new take on an old favorite. Enjoy the new line of Triscuit baked with whole grain brown rice and wheat, some with real food ingredients like sweet potato or red beans.
