Another impressive appetizer from Houston Jr. League, Stop and Smell the Rosemary. Display on a raised cake stand for a beautiful presentation. Calls for 8 sheets phyllo dough, but for some reason I mistakenly only used 4, and it turned out just fine, just with a thinner crust! Also, although I made this according to the recipe specifications, I think next time I might use an entire 6 oz. jar of marinated artichokes, rather than just the 3 oz. - just FYI!
Perfect party fare. Keep warm in a crockpot for your guests. Also great as a main course. Serve with mashed potatoes or over cooked noodles. The gravy is rich and tasty. Prep time includes the 2 hr refrigeration.
This is a very versatile dish from Bonnie Stern who has owned a cooking school in Toronto Canada for over 30 years. It can be served at a cocktail party, as an appetizer or as a main course with a side salad. My DH & I have been known to devour the whole thing, with a few glasses of wine, on a Saturday night!!
These baked onion rings are incredible! There is no way that you feel like you are eating healthy and low fat when you eat these. This is a slight adaptation of a Yahoo Health recipe. I dip mine in ketchup but my husband is a purist who prefers his plain. And while the prep time can be a little long, make it a social time. I talk to everyone in the house while I make these, and then sit back and enjoy how great they smell as they cook!
My DH came up with this recipe, so ingredient amounts are approximate (he does it by taste). This is really good served warm in bread bowls. Spiciness can be adjusted by using more or less garlic and Worcestershire sauce.
You'll never buy frozen mozzarella sticks again! These are easy and absolute delicious with none of the unhealthy additives of the commercial kind. I serve these with my own Angie's Bella Marinara sauce (with the spices punched up a little), but these would also be good with a creamy ranch-style dip. Vary the herbs in the breading if you like, but I like this combination with the marinara sauce.
This one came from the back of a teriyaki sauce bottle. It's easy, a great low carb appetizer or main dish paired with a salad. And can be altered for a more filling dish by omitting the lettuce and using flour tortillas instead!
A friend of mine recently served this at her dinner party, and said "it couldn't be easier", and I said "it couldn't be more delicious" and all other guests agreed. It disappeared in minutes!!! It is a delicious and quick appetizer, or could also be the "bread" accompaniment to any main course, either way, your family and friends will "gobble" it up!! And, it is easy and fun for kids to make and enjoy too!!
