I became utterly addicted to this pumpkin bark that appears at Whole Foods in the fall, but it's quite expensive so I wanted to try making my own version at home. It's a little time-consuming but delicious, and far cheaper! Would be a hit at fall parties. The spicing is really dependent on how much you want the pumpkin to stand out, 1-2 teaspoons is what I prefer. Dark chocolate would also work nicely in this but milk chocolate makes for rich bark that pairs well with the pumpkin. The kind I buy at the store has no crunchy bits in it, the fixings were my idea, but it's delicious both crunchy and smooth! Cook time is both the stovetop and chill times. Yields about 1.5-2 lbs. EDIT: Fixed due to typo-- should be 1/2 cup pumpkin or a bit less, the melted white chocolate should still have the same consistency as melted chocolate. I made this again using an 11 x 7 pan which I liked better.
These are my ultimate party sandwiches! So simple, so yummy, so budget friendly. This is my most requested party food. I usually make this with 2 loaves of pumpernickle for a party, but you could scale it down for a small picnic or get together. Just be careful to add the seasoning to your tastes! I cook the bacon the night before to save time the next day.
This is a delicious and fruity side dish! I got it from my cousin Bill, who says every time he brings it somewhere he gets bombarded with requests for the recipe. I can see why! The serving size is an estimate. It makes a lot! The cooking time includes the time to refrigerate overnight.
I made this for a Christmas party. It was a hit! Even my kids love it and they were excited to be able to help prepare it. I put down 30 minutes of prep time, but it doesn't include 4 hours for marinating.
These tasty rolls are perfect for brunch! The apple and maple add a little something extra! I often make the filling the night before - and chill - assembling my rolls in the morning - chilling the filling makes it less messy to work with.
I found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. I made it twice so far and it was a hit at two parties. I'm sure you could use the same method with any shape of loaf, or only slice the loaf crosswise and stuff the slots.
This looks not so attractive but is very addictive and everywhere I take it people beg for the recipe! Serve this with sliced and or small squares of frech bread. Its not a dieters recipe, greasy but FABULOUS!!!! I cut bread pieces up and place them back in there bag. Set the bag next to dip for easy access and the bread stays soft and fresh this way also. SO GOOD! Hint: If you like this you can make this and put it on a pizza crust. SO good that way too.
These Apple pasties are great and very few ingredients, but you will have to make plenty as I discovered because they go fast and everybody wants more. I almost regret starting them as I get plenty of demand from my family for them. I found this in an old english country side cook book, and its so easy and a hit.
Little Tavern Shops is a defunct chain of hamburger restaurants in Baltimore, Maryland, and Washington, D.C that appears to be on the cusp of a revival. The slogan of the chain was "Buy 'em by the bag", and its signs promised "Cold drinks * Good Coffee". The stores were quite small and could accommodate only a few seated customers, while most business was take-out.
This recipe is posted in response to a HUGE forum discussion. If you wish to make larger patties, roll the meat into 1.7 ounce meatballs and cook as directed.
It's probably been 25 years since my father discovered this yummy appetizer in the IGA store in Mexico, MO. One of the butchers made the logs to sell in the meat department, and I think his name was Meng (could be first name or last name).

terribly addictive party food but it's reasonably healthy so that's ok. cooking time is chill time. edited due to reviews: they can get a bit overly wet, try making the salad a few hours to a day beforehand and then scooping out with a slotted spoon to leave the liquid behind. this also infuses the veggies like a marinade. they wont be terrible colourful unless you use a light-coloured vinegar and mix the dressing in right before serving. i like balsamic but i generally choose taste over appearances if i have to choose.
