Easy Upgrades That Will Change Cheese & Crackers

Today: Our favorite picks for how to top your crackers better. 

We love riffs on avocado toast, but when perfectly fried bread is out of reach, we are all about the one-crunch bite. And we had a feeling we're not alone. Which is why we turned to Instagram to find out what you put on your crackers when you throw a party—or when no one is looking.

Sharp cheddar and apple

A spicy pepper jelly (I'm currently working my way through a jar of habanero peach) and a bit of cheese to balance the heat. A small plate of these and a glass of wine is a guilty "snack for dinner" pleasure.

Roquefort and a dollop of mayonnaise on a saltine, some good salami on the side, and a glass of cold milk to wash it down.

Hannah, thank you for the great tips. I love @caurena idea! My favorite way to enjoy crackers is to top them with dollop of greek yogurt mixed with lemon zest, then a piece of smoked trout and cucumbers.
