These Cream Cheese Garlic Ranch and Veggie Appetizers are probably the BEST family favorite appetizer! Especially for getting those picky eaters to eat their veggies!! I make these for lots of holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving and really any family get together’s. They are just deelish! Appetizer are my very favorite foods to make!
Why oh why can’t my kids be the ones that gobble up vegetables? Ever since they were little tiny kids, they have always hated them…why? I kept thinking I was doing something wrong, I mean I have tried every trick in the book it seems over the years. These are the different things I’ve tried over the years:
- Giving Choices
- Simple presentations of the veggie
- Fancy presentations of the veggie
- Explaining the benefits of eating veggies
- Forcing them to eat veggies
- Letting them fix their own veggies
- Choosing how the veggies will be served
- Hiding it in other food
Nothing, no way and no how! Until about 5 years ago… I stumbled on this deelish Garlic Ranch Spread…and now my kids will even eat their veggies as long as they are topped on this deelish spread!
Cream Cheese Garlic Ranch and Veggie Appetizer

Simply put Cream Cheese, Minced Garlic Cloves, Ranch Dressing and Mayo into a bowl and stir. Set Garlic Ranch Spread aside and chop your veggies. I use a blender for this, to save time. I throw everything in and in seconds they are chopped. Now spread the Garlic Spread on the RITZ® Crackers and top with Veggies and Bacon Pieces!
