Brie w/Honey Bites
- Toasted bread rounds or crackers
- Brie Cheese wedge
- Honey for drizzling
Place a small bite of the softened brie on a round or cracker and drizzle with honey - Enjoy!
Veggie Strips with Dip
- Colorful veggie strips (red/yellow/orange/green peppers) carrot sticks, celery sticks, lightly blanched asparagus or green beans.
- Your favorite salad dressing or dip.
Place the dressing/dip in the bottom of individual shot glasses and stand the veggies up in the dressing/dip so that each guest can take the individual serving with them as they socialize at your party. OR place the dressing/dip in one large bowl with a serving spoon and place the veggies on a tray alongside it - so the guests can place them directly on their plate in the quantity they desire.
Meatball Skewers with Dipping Sauce
- Homemade or frozen meatballs (thawed) - make some beef, some lamb and some pork to add another dimension of flavor
- Small skewers 4 to 6 inch size
- Small bite sized veggies to place between each meatball (cucumber, cabbage pieces, grape tomatoes, etc.)
- Small amount of cooking oil (my preference is olive oil)
- Dipping sauce of your choice - such as BBQ, Marinara or Oriental.
Warm the meatballs in a small amount of olive oil until warmed through and place two or three of them on skewers separated by the veggies. Serve with the dipping sauce of your choice.
