This little sandwich will make you want to slap somebody...probably me! I should have shared this little darling a long time ago. It's not my recipe but my dear friend, Babs. The combination of pepper jack cheese and black beans with purple onion on rye is about all one could ask for in a quick fix that tastes utterly divine.
These are a fun appetizer and a much easier way to serve brie to a group. They are very versatile so you might want to try a brown sugar and walnut filling instead of the cranberry, or whatever is your preference!
Another one of my savoury "cake" recipes from France. This recipe is slightly more substantial than my Recipe #316039, as this recipe contains ham with white wine and port! Serve this as alternative sandwich bread or as a light snack spread with cream cheese or butter. This cake recipe will also make fantastic little appetisers if the loaf is cut into small cubes and served with olives, cubes of cheese and savoury spreads. Please note that the texture of this savoury cake is NOT like a sweet dessert cake - it will be slightly holey with a robust and slightly chewy texture, almost like sourdough.
These little biscuits have meatballs and cheese inside. Dip them in marinara sauce for a yummy snack. They would even be great as a side with soup. The layer type biscuits work best for this appetizer. I found this recipe in a Pillsbury cookbook. *****UPDATE*****Since posting, I have begun using my own homemade meatballs for this recipe (usually prepared the day before and refrigerated until needed). I had purchased a bag of ready-made meatballs that weren't the best quality and was really unhappy with the results for the appetizer. Just thought I would pass on the info...
A wonderful appetizer - always highly requested at our parties! From a Betty Crocker Appetizer recipe book - January 2004. I use store-bought meatballs.
Meatballs will hold on Low Heat setting for about 2 hours.
Hint- Trader Joe's makes a great cranberry-orange sauce, but only at the holidays. To make this recipe at other times, I just create a sauce with canned cranberries and about a 1/4 cup OJ. Enjoy! We sure do!
These are so addictive! I gave this recipe to some folks who now make 2 batches a week!
This was given to me by Joyce, a co-worker.
Note : Please use the large pretzels broken into pieces, these absorb the oil and flavor better then nuggets, or small twists. added: 10/29/08
