Every year we look forward to Easter lunch. After we celebrate the resurrection of our savior -Jesus- at church, the family on my husband’s side gets together and we consume insane amounts of delicious food while spending some awesome quality time together. Each year I make appetizers to share– and this year will be no different. In fact, my appetizer creations got a lot easier and more creative this year with Kraft Fresh Take. Kraft Fresh Take is an amazing blend of delicious cheese, spices and bread crumbs that you combine together and use to enhance the flavors of whatever recipe you’re making. For the three appetizers I am making for Easter lunch, I am going to use the three different flavors I found at Walmart. Southwest Three Cheese, Italian Parmesan and Cheddar Jack & Bacon. Yum!
And you want to know what’s even MORE awesome? You can print a coupon for $1 off Fresh Chicken when you buy Kraft Fresh Take at Walmart.com. Woohoo! You can find Kraft Fresh Take with the other cheeses in the refrigerated cheese section at Walmart. As you can see above, I have graciously shown you, by visual aid, exactly where it’s located at so you can find it easily when you go. You’re welcome.
Easter Appetizer #1: Cheddar Jack & Bacon Deviled Eggs
Since no Easter is complete without deviled eggs, I decided to spruce the traditional recipe up with Kraft’s Cheddar Jack & Bacon Fresh Take. I love how the bacon, cheese and spices gave it a smoky flavor. It definitely kicked it up a notch or two.
I would love to show you how I made them, so keep scrolling!
Since I am totally in love with visual aids, I have shown you above, the first 16 steps of making deviled eggs using the Kraft Fresh Take Cheddar Jack & Bacon flavor. Now, I will explain steps 1-16 and end this recipe with a few more steps and a photo of a really cute kid eating said deviled egg. You’re welcome again.
Grab 1 dozen eggs and a large saucepan
- Take all eggs out of their carton and gently place them in said saucepan
- Fill saucepan with COLD water until you’ve completely cover the eggs. Place them on the stove an bring to a boil. Boil for 30 second, then remove saucepan from heat. Let eggs sit in hot water for 12-14 minutes
- Once time is up, place eggs in a bowl of ice water for about 15 minutes. This will halt the cooking process
- Once eggs are cooled, peel and rinse. If you have cooked them right, you should have no problems peeling the shell off
- Cut your hard boiled eggs in half and remove the yolks, placing them in a bowl as you go
- Mash egg yolks with a fork until they are completely crumbly
- Add about a half cup of Miracle Whip to yolks and combine completely
- Add about 2 tablespoons of mustard and combine completely
- Take your Kraft Fresh Take packet out of the package and read the instructions. Each package has two separate pockets that you will combine together One pocket has bread crumbs and seasonings, the other, cheese.
- Open your Fresh Take packet, peeling open the divider that was separating the two sides
- Seal the package and SHAKE! This will combine the cheese with the rest of the ingredients
- Put about a half of a cup of the Fresh Take in your deviled egg filling
- Stir to combine all ingredients together
- Put yolk mixture into a large Ziploc baggy and snip a corner with scissors to pipe the filling into the hard boiled egg whites
- Pipe your mixture until the egg whites are nice and full
Once you’ve piped all the filling into your eggs, take some of the extra Fresh Take Bread Crumb/Cheese mix and sprinkle it on the top for a delicious garnish.
Then give it to your family to eat and enjoy!

Easter Appetizer #3: Italian Parmesan Baked Meatballs
When I picked up the Italian Parmesan Fresh Take, I immediately knew I wanted to make meatballs. I mean, who doesn’t like a hunk of flavorful meat that you can pretty much do anything with? Sure, you can put them in spaghetti, but I really like them as bite-sized appetizers! You can cover them with sauces or leave them plain– up to you! I decided to keep mine plain because I did not want to mask the flavors that come in that awesome Fresh Take packet.
Just take 2 lbs fresh hamburger (I used 90% lean), 2 eggs. Kraft Fresh Take Italian Parmesan Recipe, mix all together in a bowl, roll into balls and bake for 25-30 minutesnon a 350 preheated oven. Easy peasy!
Well, there you have it folks, three easy and delicious Easter Appetizers using three of Kraft’s Fresh Take Recipe flavors. I hope these help you with your Easter food plans! I know they have made my life a whole lot easier.
