Years ago, I had the most delicious tomato ricotta jam jar appetizer at Nordstrom Cafe. It was a layered appetizer with ricotta cheese, tomato jam and was served in a little jar with crispy toasted bread. I loved having my own jar of yumminess! Sadly they don’t serve it anymore. But I created my own bacon tomato ricotta jam jar and it’s a bit healthier and even tastier!
What jars should I buy? Can I serve it another way?
I use a Ball half pint jar with the wide mouth, but you can use any jar or even layer it in a dish.
Gift idea! Make them up and give away as a hostess present
It’s also fun to give each person their own tiny jar. It also makes a nice hostess gift when going to a holiday party. You can store the Tomato Bacon Jam in the freezer and then make up the appetizer shortly before you leave for the party.
Adapted from an appetizer I had years ago at the Nordstrom café, this tomato ricotta jam jar appetizer is sure to please everyone! I’ve lightened it up a bit, but used my tomato bacon jam so it has plenty of great flavor. You can serve it in individual jars or one bigger jar for everyone.
