Appetizers and snacks
Trader Joe’s Carolina Gold BBQ Sauce is a golden-hued, sweet & smoky, mustard-based sauce that reminds us of some of the best grilled meats we’ve enjoyed in the Carolinas. Use it as a glaze near the end of barbecuing, or as a dipping sauce for TJ’s Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets, veggies, or fries. Or for an appetizer worth its weight in gold, use it as a simmer sauce with Trader Joe's Party Size Mini Meatballs.
Trader Joe’s Nori Komi Furikake is a blend of tiny, confetti-like strips of dried nori seaweed, black & white sesame seeds, salt, and kelp powder. If you’ve been to a poké bar, you’re likely familiar with Furikake—it’s a multi-purpose Japanese seasoning that’s a fan favorite on the fast-fish scene. But Furikake isn’t just for fish, folks—as you’ll soon find, it’s for “fries,” too! Baked Tofu Fries, that is…
The milk used to make Trader Joe’s Sliced Alpine Semisoft Cheese gives it its buttery yellow hue, distinct aroma, and creamy mouthfeel—not to mention superior melting capabilities. Use these capabilities to your advantage by rolling it up with TJ's Organic Black Forest Ham in Buttery Crescent Roll dough. Sprinkled with TJ’s Everything But The Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend and baked until oozing, these roll-ups make for a cheesy, taste-bud tickling snack or appetizer.
Produced using the milk of the region’s native Manchega sheep, Trader Joe's Manchego Añejo Cheese exemplifies the clean, buttery, slightly nutty flavor and delightfully crumbly texture of Manchego, then takes it to another level by aging it for a full year. All that extra time lets the cheese develop rich, caramelized notes and a firm, but still gracefully elastic structure, making it a staunchly dependable appetizer companion for dried figs, prosciutto, and a crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
At first bite, Trader Joe’s Unexpected Cheddar tastes like an aged Cheddar. And then something unexpected happens. The smooth creaminess of the Cheddar gives way to a tangy flavor and slightly crumbly texture, a subtle hint of salt crystallization is discovered, and it begins to taste like an aged Parmesan. Unexpected indeed! This easy appetizer recipe imbues the classic holiday cheese ball with that same Unexpected spirit—it's a little spicy, very cheesy, and utterly irresistible.
Trader Joe’s Spinach & Artichoke Dip provides plenty of creaminess and green veggie action between layers of Trader Joe’s Organic Sweet Potatoes, while our Quattro Formaggio Shredded Cheese Blend lends a savory sharpness to the finished dish. While this cold-weather recipe is large enough to feed a potluck crowd, the recipe halves easily for a smaller group.
It’s one thing to heat up Trader Joe’s Frozen Mashed Potatoes and serve them as-is, but it’s another thing entirely to doctor them up with cheese, garlic butter, & cream. This indulgent recipe from one of our Southern California Store Captains might just be the very definition of “leveling up.”
