I first had these back in high school - too many years ago to think about now. I've been making them ever since. Now, whenever any of my friends have a get-together, I'm expected to bring them! You've been warned!! They're addictive.
This should be called Mum's quick pickled cucumber and onion, as this is what she made EVERY Sunday afternoon for tea-time! We always had this alongside fresh bread and butter, boiled eggs, cold cuts of meat, fruit cake, scones, sometimes a tin of red salmon and always a pot of tea! Wonderful memories, and an easy and tasty pickle for tea-time food. This is also wonderful with picnic food, smoked salmon or an assorted cheese board.
These are cute little Parmesan cheese cups in your choice of Tiropita or Spanakopita (with spinach) fashion. You can make both varieties for more selection at the table to go wonderfully as an appetizer or with your best pasta or antipasta dish.
A really simple and tasty dish that is so versatile and open to so many interpretations. Great for a starter, side or snack dish, or why not stick it into a bun for a veggie burger! I've used toasted pine nuts, but hazelnuts would be good too. Stilton and Cambezola cheese work really well too and Cheddar is an obvious choice if you don't do blue cheese. I bet fresh mozzarella would be great too.
Chopped bacon can also be added to the leek for another variation.
This is a recipe I created by combining all the ingredients I liked in other Ceviche recipes. Turn out to be a hit! Everyone loves it. I make this ahead of time and take it out on our boat. Served in plastic cups. Remember to keep chilled. This can be served as elegant or casual as you like. I've served it in anything from plastic cups to Martini glasses or even in brandy glasses for a more special presentation. Cook time does not include marinating the shrimp.
I created this recipe when I was on a highly restricted diet for 5 months, but I loved it so much that I adapted it a little and it's now a staple for us. It goes especially well with soup. They are also really good dipped in pretty much any kind of mustard, and my little one year old boy loves them. Feel free to experiment with any kind of rice you have on hand for this. I've used 11 different types of rice for it, and each time it was wonderful. It's a simple side dish, and sure to please anyone that comes through my door for a snack or a meal.
These hors d'oeuvres are totally addictive, there flakey and so easy to prepare, these are the perfect party food, or make them for an evening snack, you won't be able to stop eating them, they are that good! The rolls can be fully prepared and wrapped, then refrigerated for up to 24 hours in advance to be baked later.
These delicious appetizers were a hit at our Easter Sunday potluck Brunch. I was pleased to find the recipe was in one of our local cook books 'A Taste Of Heaven' and surprisingly a recipe I had been thinking of trying. Delicious, easy and a crowd pleaser! I find putting them on a cookie sheet and heating through in a 350 oven make for a marvelous hot appetizer. Also excellent at room temperature.
This is a copycat recipe from the Cheesecake Factory. It is a "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes" authored by Todd Wilbur. I haven't made this yet, but it sounds very good. I think this will be a very easy recipe to prepare. Don't be intimidated by the long list of ingredients. there are three simple sauces that are part of this recipe. If you try this before I do, please review it and let me know how it turned out. Prep time is a guesstimation.
While this recipe calls for cod, you could use any mild, flaky white fish fillets as long as you adjust the cooking time to reflect the variable thickness. Another thing you might want to adjust is how much of the chipotle in adobo you use. I ate sitting next to a fire extinguisher, this being my first time making the dish. (YOWZA!) Anyway, I had about a pound (16 oz) of fish and when all was said and done, ended up with 4 patties each about 3-3.5" in diameter. We had them as part of a moderate meal with baguette slices and a simple salad. If you make many smaller versions, you could serve them as appetizers.
