I love making appetizers… a lot of appetizers. I love the variety and the fun you can have with appetizers. Most of the ones I like to make are pretty simple, but pack a lot of flavor. The bites below are some of my favorites…
Crab, sun dried tomato and dill cracker bites…
Fresh Summer Rolls…
One of my favorites… Lemon Blackberry Vodka Gelees (recipe)
Too many appetizers to name here – you get the idea :)
Another fan favorite – Goat Cheese stuffed Cherry Tomatoes. Just cut off the top and a little bit of the bottom, scoop out the insides and then fill with herbed goat cheese and drizzle a little balsamic vinegar and boom! You’ve got yourself a fantastic, easy appetizer.
The sandwich wraps are also pretty easy. Take a lavash wrap, use your favorite kind of spread. I used some plain goat cheese, avocado and fresh herbs, butter lettuce, dried cranberries, toasted walnuts and some salt and pepper.
These are also tasty little things too. Also, very simple… not much to look at – but I know I can improve on that. Next time!
Anywho… these are watermelon, prosciutto and manchego cheese bites! Maybe something green or more colorful on them next time? Cilantro? Chiffonade of some sage? Or maybe instead a drizzle of basil oil? So many choices!!
I am going to make these next – Cranberry-Pecan Cheese Wafers!
I will let you all know how these turn out. Until next time… have a wonderful night. Oh yeah, happy hump day.
