Our local deli makes terrific roast beef sandwiches. This pinwheel appetizer recreates the taste. My family says the pinwheels have so many flavors for such a little treat. —Pamela Shank, Parkersburg, West Virginia
Mary Steiner of West Bend, Wisconsin shares a make-ahead cracker spread that showcases thyme and garlic. "A neighbor who has an herb garden gave me the recipe," Mary writes. "It's simple to stir up and makes a special appetizer for company. It's also fun to serve at a party."
This bread is yummy served as an appetizer or with soup. "We nicknamed it Louisiana Lagniappe Bread," relates Debbie Letzring from Pineville, Louisiana. "'Lagniappe' is Louisiana French for 'extra', and this bread is extra-good."
Looking for an eye-catching appetizer to dress up a dinner party or fun fall gathering? They don't come much cuter than the fanciful hard-cooked egg "toadstools" pictured here.
Capped with cherry tomatoes, these tasty morsels always delight family and friends, says creator Sue Cravatta of Elmwood Park, Illinois.
"They couldn't be easier to make, and my kids get the biggest kick out of them. They gobble the toadstools up-and even eat the spinach 'grass' I display them on," she relates.
“Easy to make and easy to spread, this spicy cheese ball was my favorite appetizer that Mom made while I was growing up. Now, I enjoy serving it at my own parties and at potlucks.”
