Here are a couple of hors d’oeuvre recipes that we had at a get-together for Spouse’s birthday a couple of nights ago. These little club sandwiches on cheese, garlic and herb scones were very well received as were our standard Italian Sausage Rolls in a sour cream pastry (recipe below).
We also had a very nice baked brie and wild Newfoundland cranberries in puff pastry but I didn’t manage to get a photo of that one before it was devoured. It was utterly delicious though. Must remember a photo for next time.
We finished with the Chocolate Buttercream Cake from yesterday’s post and sent our guests home well stuffed!
In a food processor, combine:
3 cups flour
¾ cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¾ cup butter
until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Remove to a large bowl and stir in:
½ cup grated aged cheddar cheese
1 finely minced garlic clove
½ tsp coarse black pepper
2 tsp Italian herbs dried
1 cup soured milk
Pour into the well and mix only enough to form a dough ball. Roll to 1/2 inch thickness and cut out scones with a small biscuit cutter and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Brush an egg wash over the tops if desired. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 15 minutes or until an evenly light golden brown. Cool thoroughly.
Mix together until well blended
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp finely chopped lemon zest
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp sugarSplit the scones and spread with the lemon dijon mayonnaise. Fill the sandwiches with
Grilled turkey breast, thinly sliced
Crisp cooked bacon
Thin slices of tomato (optional)
