I’ve catered many parties, and these three recipes are my most loved and requested. Try these for your next event, trust me your guests will love them!
First is a sliced cucumber with dill cream cheese and smoked salmon.
1 pack of plain cream cheese at room temp
Wash and slice the cucumbers, you can peel the skin or leave on.
In a mixer using the whisk attachment, add the cream cheese and whip for 2 minutes so the cream cheese gets nice and fluffy. Add 2-3 teaspoons of dried dill to the cream cheese and whisk for 1 minute.
Take a slice of cucumber and top with a spoonful of the cream cheese. Then with the smoked salmon, use a fork to get small flakes of the salmon to put o top of the cream cheese.
The second appetizer is caprese skewers.
mozzarella pearls (you can usually find these in the deli section)
Wash the tomatoes.
For the basil tear the leaves into small pieces, about the size of a nickel.
Open the bag of mozzarella pearls and gently rinse them in water to separate them.
Start layering the skewers. Start with the tomato, then the mozzarella, then a piece of basil, and repeat three times.
For the pesto, you can make it by adding 1/2 cup of basil leaves, 2 tbsp. of pine nuts, and 3 tbsp. parmesan cheese, and 2 tbsp. of olive oil into a blender. While blending, slowly drizzle in more oil until it’s thin enough to make a sauce consistency.
Once the pesto is ready, drizzle some over the skewers.
The third appetizer is stuffed mushrooms
1 package of button mushrooms
1 box stuffing
small jar of pimentos, roasted red pepper- diced small
parsley, salt, pepper, thyme
Set oven to 350*F.
Wask mushroom and pat dry. Remove the inner stem and chop finely.
Make the stuffing mix and once ready mix in the spices, red peppers, and chopped mushroom stems.
Turn the whole mushrooms upside down and fill with a generous spoonful of the stuffing mix.
On a baking pan arrange the mushrooms into a single layer and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 10-30 minutes until the mushrooms are cooked and browned. Take it out of the oven and arrange it on a platter. Garnish with a sprinkle of parsley or chives on top.
