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. You could also add a trail of whimsical raisin "ants" around the base for extra nutrition and fun!
