I am enjoying lots of parties this holiday season. I do hope you are too! Many thanks to friends and family for the wonderful invitations. I enjoy bringing along food and for a recent party I used Drunken Onions I canned back in September as the star of an appetizer dish.
I purchased the baguette slices and goat cheese from Costco and the London Broil deli meat from a local grocery store. I have used the baguettes in the past, but didn’t notice they were jalapeno cheddar flavor until I opened them. I thought the flavors might clash, but the little bite of heat that lingered after eating these tasty treats was quite nice.
Super easy assembly. Spread baguette slices with a ‘schmear’ of goat cheese, add a nice layer of Drunken Onions, and top off with some roast beef or London Broil. Voile’. What a fabulous appetizer. When it was time to leave the party, the plate was empty. You’ll notice in the photos below, I made myself a little sample plate. So important to have a taste test of what you plan to serve.
I wanted to let party guests know some details about the dish. While I LOVE goat cheese, I realize it’s not for everyone. I suppose cream cheese would be a good alternative. Came up with this cute little appetizer label idea while digging through my gift wrap box. So here I am all wrapped up and ready to head out to the party. I brought along a couple of gifts for the wonderful hostess, including a jar of Drunken Onions and a cute little cupcake candy dish.
Loved that the hostess sent me this cute picture the next morning……perfect place to store sugared cranberries. We certainly enjoyed those sweet little cranberries in our martinis. Yum. White cranberry juice, vodka, and a few sugared cranberries. Beautiful simplicity! Enjoyable drink!
