Barbecue On A Cracker Appetizer

Cutting board loaded with barbecue cracker appetizers

Looking for a fun and easy appetizer? How about a barbecue cracker appetizer?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Leftover barbecued meat: pork butt, brisket or chicken
  • Your favorite barbecue sauce
  • Ritz Crackers or saltine crackers
  • Additional toppings including pickle chips, white onion, cole slaw, cheese, etc.

Chop barbecued meat finely and mix with some barbecue sauce. Use enough sauce so that the meat will hold together on a cracker without being sloppy. Heat the meat gently in the microwave or on the stove top.

Put a small amount of meat on each cracker and top with a bread & butter pickle chip. If using chopped pork, top with coleslaw.

As a variation, place a slice of pepper jack cheese on a cracker and top with a small piece of brisket or short rib and a squirt of barbecue sauce. Add a sliver of white onion if you like.
