My husband and I love patty melts, and we order them often when we go out to eat. This recipe idea came to me when I was thinking of appetizer ideas I wanted to serve at our upcoming small but annual big game day party. It’s an easy and delicious twist on a patty melt burger, and once you try it, you’ll be amazed how much the flavor of this Patty Melt Dip resembles the iconic patty melt burger, caramelized onions and all!
Since a traditional satay sauce is peanut butter based, I thought I’d do a play on a PB & J by adding in season, plump and juicy Florida strawberries to the satay sauce. The result is a sweet and savory dipping sauce which pairs wonderfully well with grilled chicken. To say the kids will love this dish of Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce is an understatement! After all, who wouldn’t love a dipping sauce that tastes like a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich?
I always enjoy a gathering of appetizers where I can pick and choose my favorites, and pile them on a plate one by one. I think there’s something in my brain that tells me that, because they’re small, the calories don’t count as much…so please don’t burst my bubble. After all, diet season is right around the corner so I can and will worry about those pesky additional pounds then. Until then…Happy New Year! Let’s Party!!
For the recipe I’m sharing today, I’ve made a homemade cocktail sauce. However, please feel free to use your favorite variety of store-bought cocktail sauce if that is your preference.
Having said that, there are only three ingredients in my homemade cocktail sauce; ketchup, horseradish (add as much or as little as you like), and smoked paprika. Save money and make your own at home. You’ll be glad you did!
Trust me when I tell you that Santa himself would be thrilled to find a bowl of this White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn waiting for him on the hearth when he stops in on Christmas Eve to deliver packages. It’s a nice change of pace from cookies, and has that salty-sweet bite everyone loves! Even reindeer!
My family (well, me really) goes crazy for all things German when fall arrives and the leaves start to change.
This simple recipe utilizes flavorful German bratwurst which is wrapped in store-bought crescent rolls and then baked. The easy sauerkraut dipping sauce the perfect accompaniment to these tasty little bites.
Since I’m not one to shy away from a challenge (a mental challenge I gave to myself), I decided to make my own broccoli cauliflower vegetable tots and the results were every bit as tasty (even more so) than what I’d purchased in the market. Plus, since I’d made them myself I knew exactly what is in them, and now so do you!
Imagine the delight on your child’s face when they pull this healthy edible necklace from their school lunchbox! Not only will they be surprised and amazed, but they’ll also probably be the talk of the lunch table among all their friends (in the best way, of course).
You can call this fun, and unique treat an edible necklace, but for me, I like to call it a healthy edible neckLUNCH! LOL Get it?
I’ve created this recipe for a BLT Puff Pastry Tart in honor of #BaconMonth 2017 when tomatoes are at their peak of flavor. The tomatoes make this tart fresh and delicious, but the bacon makes this tart outstanding!!
While this bacon, onion and cheese dip is fantastic for serving with crackers, chips, and vegetables, it would also be delicious slathered on some toasted French bread and then broiled in the oven until brown and bubbly! *Note to self*
