Holiday Treats

December 28, 2009

The festivus of feasting seems to have slowed down…at least for now.

This Christmas, food was taken to a whole other level. It was constant, it was plentiful and it was delicious.

Here are a couple of my additions. These two appetizers were such a small piece of the overall three table spread at Adam’s family’s annual Christmas Eve party. From soup and salad to dessert squares and pie, there really was everything you would ever want in between, including great company. 

There was also the traditional Christmas Eve dinner at my brother and Candace’s new house, Christmas Day dinner at Adam’s parent’s house and an after Christmas lunch at my grandma’s house. Lets just says that my pants are getting pretty tight!!!

Prosciutto Salad Bites

  • Sliced Prosciutto
  • Mesclun Salad Greens
  • Salad Dressing of your choice

Lay the prosciutto slices vertically on a cutting board. Pick through the greens to make a salad bundle and place the bundle at the bottom of each prosciutto slice. Wrap the prosciotto slices up, with the salad in the middle. The prosciutto will stick and hold everything together. Slice the prosciutto wrapped salad in half and stand up on a plate. Before serving, drizzle on some salad dressing of your choice.

Cucumber Smoked Salmon Bites

  • Sliced Cucumber
  • Half a container of Cream Cheese
  • Handful of Dill, Chopped
  • Smoked Salmon, cut into bite sized pieces
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix the cream cheese with the chopped dill (this is easier if the cream cheese is at room temperature). Place a tsp of the mixture on each individual cucumber slice. Place a small piece of smoked salmon on top of the cream cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and add a toothpick to each bite, for easy eating.

Both of these appetizers can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until serving time.

Happy Holidays everyone!
