This is from Graham Kerr, the man who said, "If you are out of salted nuts, the best appetiser is champagne!" This is from Volume 1 of his CBC Television Cookbooks. I also have Volume 3 and it was published in 1969, so this recipe is some kind of late 1960s cocktail party creation. Graham's recipe notes include: "At heart this is a dish that everyone enjoys except those with ulcers and those who have a romantic meeting with someone who isn't at the party." and, "Vodka based creations blend well." I use party rye-sized pumpernickel bread for the "brown bread rounds" he writes of; also, this recipe is for 2 people only so increase if you're serving a crowd (makes a great summer party treat) but don't make them too far ahead.
