Oh, the joy of being with you again, my beloved readers Today, we’re not just cooking; we’re embarking on a splendid journey, crafting bite-sized treasures that will transport us to a world where every bite is a celebration – the enchanting realm of Ritz Cracker Party Sandwiches!If you’re seeking a path to more culinary wonders, make sure to drop by our cozy little digital home at Life with Jeviko.
Have you ever experienced a moment that’s so simple, yet inexplicably joyful and profound? That’s what these Ritz Cracker Sandwiches are all about! Picture this: a gentle crunch of a buttery cracker, a sumptuous wave of creamy, zesty filling, and just when you think it’s over, another delightful crisp to cap it all off. These aren’t just sandwiches; they’re memories nestled between two crackers. As a little girl, the days at grandma’s were a sunlit dream, embellished with the rich, delightful aroma wafting from her kitchen as she conjured her legendary cracker sandwiches. Each bite was, and always will be, a morsel of her love and warmth.

Is there a vegetarian alternative to the ham in the filling?
Yes, indeed! You can effortlessly swap the ham for finely chopped mushrooms or well-drained, minced sundried tomatoes for a vegetarian-friendly version of our sandwich. Both options will offer a unique, appetizing twist to your filling, ensuring every bite is as enchanting as the original.

What other types of cheese can I use if I don’t have cream cheese?
If cream cheese is off the cards, feel free to dive into alternatives like mascarpone for a similarly creamy and lush experience. A soft goat cheese or ricotta can also be splendid choices, each offering their own distinctive, delicious note to our whimsical cracker sandwiches.

How can I store leftover Ritz Cracker Party Sandwiches?
While these scrumptious sandwiches are best enjoyed fresh, you can store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. To retain the crispness of the crackers, consider storing the filling separately and assembling just before serving again.

Can I add a spicy kick to the Ritz Cracker Sandwiches for a bit of extra zing?
Oh, spice enthusiasts, rejoice! Introducing a dash of hot sauce or a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes into the filling will beautifully elevate the flavors, creating a spirited contrast between the creamy filling and the fiery kick. Adjust the heat to your preference and let those spicy notes dance merrily on your palate!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes (No cooking is needed for these refreshing cold appetizer sandwiches.)
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients :

  • 1 tablespoon Yellow Mustard
  • 1/2 cup of finely chopped Cooked Ham
  • A dash of Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 30 Ritz Crackers
  • 8 ounces of Cream Cheese
  • 3 finely chopped Green Onions
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce


  1. Begin by bringing your cream cheese to room temperature to ensure it’s eager and ready to blend smoothly with the other filling ingredients. Gentle and even mixing is key to a lusciously smooth texture that’ll caress your palate.
  2. Enchant your cooked ham and green onions by finely chopping them. Pay attention to the gentle ‘chop’ and ‘slice,’ realizing that each piece will add its whisper of flavor, building the scrumptious profile of our filling.
  3. In a bowl, tenderly whisk together the cream cheese, yellow mustard, and Worcestershire sauce until they dance into a unified, creamy mixture. This union forms the heart of our filling, a melody of tangy, savory, and umami notes that will sing in every bite.
  4. Invite the chopped ham and green onions into the creamy mixture, gently folding them in until they’re beautifully cloaked in our creamy base. Every stir intertwines the ingredients, promising a burst of flavor in every mouthful.
  5. Lay out the Ritz Crackers in pairs, whispering dreams of delightful gatherings to each one. With a kind spoon, caress a generous dollop of the filling onto a cracker and then gently cap it with its pair, allowing the filling to nestle snugly between them.
  6. Arrange your cracker sandwiches on a serving platter, perhaps with a gentle sprinkle of freshly chopped herbs or a light drizzle of olive oil for an extra dash of magic. Serve immediately and watch as eyes light up upon the first bite.
  7. Enjoy the symphony of crunches and joyful sighs around you. Perhaps pair these beauties with a refreshing beverage, elevating the experience of savoring them, making memories that linger sweetly in your heart.

Cooking tips :

  • Consider chilling your filling for about 15-30 minutes before assembling your sandwiches. This little pause allows the flavors to meld together beautifully and gives the filling a firmness that’s dreamy to work with.
  • Feel free to venture into realms of new flavors by adding a dash of garlic powder, smoked paprika, or a hint of cayenne pepper to the filling for a slightly different, yet equally enchanting experience.
  • Choose your crackers wisely! While Ritz crackers bring a classic, buttery goodness, experimenting with different varieties like whole wheat or vegetable-infused crackers can add an extra dimension to your little bites.
  • Transforming this recipe into a vegetarian wonder is a breeze. Try replacing the ham with finely chopped, sautéed mushrooms, or perhaps well-drained, chopped olives, creating a new world of flavors to explore.
  • A tiny sprig of fresh dill, a petite parsley leaf, or even a small dollop of fruit preserve atop each cracker sandwich can add a visual and flavorful flourish that takes your creations to the next level of elegance.
