Recipe Exchange I- Appetizers
Recipe Exchange II- Soups, salads, and salad dressings



Anyone want to participate in a recipe exchange? Might have to do it via PMs to make sure that people that want to get recipes also give recipes. Unlike my real life friends. *grumble*

Sure, sounds like fun! I don't mind posting recipes here, even if I don't get any back.

1. CALIENTE el horno a 450 °F. (No se recomienda usar horno de microondas.)
2. COLOQUE la pizza en la parilla intermedia del horno.
3. HORNEE la pizza. La pizza estará lista cuando se derrita el queso del centro.

It's not written down . . . it was shootin' from the hip . . . I probably told you more how to do it than what goes in it . . . I probably wouldn't tell ya the exact same way twice.

I got this off the Internet somewhere a few years ago. It's been very popular at parties.

BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP


INGREDIENTS
2 (10 ounce) cans chunk chicken, drained
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup Ranch dressing
3/4 cup red hot sauce
1 cup or more of Shredded Cheddar or Four Cheese Blend


DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Beat cream cheese, ranch dressing, and red hot sauce.
3. Fold in chicken.
4. Spread mixture into pie plate sprayed with Pam
5. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes
6. Add cheddar to top and bake and additional 10-15 minutes
7. Serve hot with Frito Scoops, tortilla chips or celery sticks.

Notes:

Chicken: Can chicken seems to add a metallic taste. I used 2 packages of Louis Rich Grilled Chicken Strips (ready to eat) and that worked great. If you want more chicken, you could easily use 3 packages.

Red Hot Sauce: I used Franks Red Hot Sauce. Some said they used Buffalo Wing sauce or added Tabasco to make it hotter. I don’t like my food that hot.

Amount: One batch will fill a medium-sized crock pot. Don’t fill the pie pan too full when you bake it because it expands while cooking. I found a square pan worked better than a round pan for some reason.

I suggest we leave it at appetizers for at least three or four days and keep bumping it. Maybe Tenn or Coffee or someone that doesn't show up a lot will see it.

Here's a stupidly-simple appetizer that's been a big hit at several parties. These are also great left-over the next day for breakfast...

"Sausage Thingies"

Brown 2 "tubes" of sausage (I usually use one regular and one hot), drain grease. Mix in 1 pack of Velveeta Cheese (1lb, I do believe) and stir until well melted. Scoop onto those small 2" square breads (cocktail bread - flavor of your choosing). Put in oven to toast the bread and slightly brown the top (7-8 minutes at 350, I do believe, just keep an eye on them).

Here's what I mean by "tube" of sausage

One of our favorites is ham or turkey lunchmeat smeared with cream cheese and rolled around a piece of pickled asparagus. Yummy.

There is no such thing as normal. Normal is a setting on a washing machine.

Here's another appetizer that's been popular at parties. I think it was one of the winners of that cooking contest (Pillsbury?) I'm sure it's had a better name, but our family now calls them:

Pizza Balls

2 rolls of refrigerated pizza crust
8 oz package of mozzarella cheese, cut into 48 pieces
Pepperoni slices
1/4 c Olive oil
1.5 tsp Italian Seasoning
Parmesan cheese
Jar of pizza sauce

Unroll and press out each pizza crust and cut into 24 squares (I use a pizza cutter (ironic, huh) and it works really well). Put a piece of cheese and pepperoni on each square and roll it into a ball. Place them seam side down into a greased baking dish.

Combine the oil and seasoning, then pour over the pizza balls. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or so (until browned). Warm up the pizza sauce and serve it on the side.

Can you buy pickled asparagus?

I make one something like that.

Take small dill pickles and wrap them completely in cream cheese. Chill for a while. Then wrap a slice of cooked ham around it and slice them. Yummy!

You can buy pickled asparagus, they come in a jar. I've seen mostly small jars, but a big one once at costco. I think they are in the canned veggies aisle at the market.

You might use something less hot. I don't like hot either but this is good. I think it would need something but you could try it.

My Dad's Boss's wife showed me this at a party.

Super quick beanless dip
1 small block Velveta cheese product
1 can beanless chili

Cut Velveta into squares. Pour can of chili into pan. Heat. Dump in Velveta until melted.
Serve warm

I am writing it from memory and haven't made it in quiet a while, so adjust the cheese to chili ratio as you see fit.

I think I'd agree with you on the Frank's Red Hot, much as I'm a fan of Texas Pete... when Hardee's was doing a Buffalo chicken sandwich, they were highly promoting their use of Frank's Red Hot, and that worked really well as a buffalo sandwich... Texas Pete just isn't a buffalo chicken flavor...

Remember, this is an appetizer; not a meal, not a sandwich. Like Swedish meatballs. Next week for card club I'm making cherry meatballs. I'll let you know how they turn out.
