Deviled ham. Easy to make and everyone loves. Preloading a mechanical pastry bag or cookie press and encouraging others to make their own is really fun.

Tabbouleh is a super healthy and tasty "dip" for crackers, and it keeps REALLY well for a few days.

Okay, I can't help myself... It is my favourite "cracker pal"...

In the tabbouleh, I put:

1 medium red onion, finely diced
1/2 cup soaked medium grade bulgur
3-4 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
roughly 1 cup finely chopped parsley
optional: 2-4 medium tomatoes (no middle/seeds), finely diced
combine all.
Then, I make the dressing out of extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice, salt and papper... and this part is mainly to taste, but I've found that going with 2-3 tbsp oil and 4-5 tbsp lemon juice and just a 1/4 tsp of salt and a dash of pepper works really well for the husband and me :)

EDIT: I also add in 1-2 tbsp chopped fresh mint. must not forget the mint...
