Yip~eeeeeeee! Over at Blessed with Grace they are asking what do you NIBBLE on during the Holidays! These are some of the apps that I keep on hand through the Holidays. You can make all but the dates way ahead and keep in the fridge for a week to 10 days. I just had to add some of my picks of favorite munchies. Here are a few:
1 cup mayo
1 tsp Curry powder
1 Tb fresh lemon juice
Mix all ingredients well and chill overnight. Serve with fresh veggies.
Bacon Wrapped Dates
2 dozen dried dates, pitted
1/3 c ricotta cheese
12 slices of bacon, cut in half
Preheat oven to 450. Use a rimmed cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Stuff each date with a teaspoon of ricotta cheese and wrap with 1/2 bacon slice. Place on cookie sheet and bake 20 mins.
Tina's Cheese Ball
(this makes 1 large or 2 small cheese balls)
2~ 8 oz cream cheese
1 Tb Accent seasoning salt
1/4 c chopped green pepper
2 Tb minced sweet onion
1 sm can crushed pineapple, drained well
1 c chopped pecans or walnuts
