These are so good and not very hard to make. They taste really yummy and fresh. My friends can't stop talking about them! I haven't met a person yet that isn't crazy about them. I use real butter instead of olive oil. It makes them taste better. If you are a "health nut" and do not like butter, then find a different recipe. These are very buttery and not healthy at all, but a great treat.
This is a great mid-afternoon snack by itself or sprinkle them on a salad or add some nuts. I used garbanzo beans from my freezer I cooked earlier and tripled the recipe so I'd have extra on hand. Kalyn says garbanzo beans are one of the world's healthiest foods--one of the highest protein levels in plants and also a low-glycemic food. Roasted chickpeas are eaten in Turkey as a snack called Leblebi. This recipe came from Kalyn's Kitchen--the Moroccan Spice Mix is from Fine Cooking Magazine. Kalyn keeps Moroccan Spice Mix on hand to flavor veggies as well.
Next time you carve pumpkins or cook fresh pumpkins don't throw out the pumpkin seeds. They make great snacks that are rich in fiber and kids love them. Purists will want only salt as a seasoning, but if you're feeling adventurous, experiment and have fun with seasoning blends. (From Fabulous Foods)
These are like taking a little bite of summer. The flavors blend so well and taste great. They never stand a chance at picnics or potlucks. They always are gone before the meal begins. Quantities and ingredients may be adapted to suit your personal tastes.
Alton once posted this on his website and said that he always cranks out a bushel or two of it during the holidays. He also said "Dole this stuff out carefully. It is highly habit forming." I totally agree and for this reason have no earthly idea how many servings it makes! Depends on how much you can eat! LOL Especially good to anyone who likes the salty-sweet combination. Cooking time is cooling time.
My daughter brought this recipe home from school one year after a parent handed them out in treat bags labeled with her recipe. Kids love putting it in a trash bags and shaking. So easy to make using a microwave. Very few ingredients and steps.
You have to try these at least once. They are absolutely delicious... dip them in a little ranch dressing and you'll be addicted!
Use your favorite cucumber pickles (I've only tried Dills, but Sweets might be good too!)
I *love* these. With a nice rich white wine... these are delicious, and easy breezy to make! This is another recipe that I make from the school of 'some'; there's really not amount to how much to use, just a 'bit' of everything. This recipe is great because your oven temp is not very important. Making a pie while making these? just stick it in the oven! All you need is for the cheese to melt and the bread, cheese, and honey to warm through.
A retro recipe that stands the test of time. These little round beauties are the highlight of any get together. Hard boil the egg, slice in 6 slices, (I use a egg slicer) top with salt & pepper, (I use a course ground pepper) dollop each slice with a zesty bit (about 1/4 tsp or more if you like) ketchup and Tabasco, and slide on to the Ritz. A smooth, but slightly salty and most definitely zesty bit of wonder right onto your taste buds.
