This is the winning recipe from Recipe to Riches within the Appetizer Category, which was developed by John Grass.
Make this pub treat at home for the whole family to enjoy. Use spicy sausage, if you prefer. If you don’t have a large pie plate, you can stack everything on a rimmed baking sheet.
Mile High Pie Dough
This easy food processor pie dough was developed for our Mile High Spinach Pie recipe, but you can use it with any savoury pie. The finished dough is very easy to work with, so perfect for pie making novices. If using for a sweet pie, add 1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar when you add the salt.
Goat Brie Pastry Bites
Our ham is delicately flavoured with rosemary and pairs beautifully with Brie and apple. You could use pear, if you prefer.
Potato Apple Latkes
We gave this traditional Jewish dish a sweet twist by adding apple to the usual potato-onion mixture, instead of serving with applesauce later. Yogurt makes a healthier choice than sour cream for dolloping on. We made ours sit-down appetizer size; for passed hors d’oeuvre-size portions, form mixture into thirty-two 1 1/4-inch diameter patties and fry for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until browned and cooked through.
Puff Pastry Cheese Twists
A delicious snack to serve with cocktails. Don’t worry if some of the toppings fall off while you twist the pastry strips; work over the baking sheet and some will bake back onto the bottoms of the twists.
Blue Cheese Canapés with Walnuts
A great, year-round, one-bite canapé. If blue cheese is not your favourite, a nice aged Cheddar would work just was well with these flavours.
Cheddary Cheese Coins
Small in size perhaps, but these morsels are brimming with sharp, complex, mature Cheddar flavour. Enjoy these warm or at room temperature, and top with a dollop of refreshing herb jelly.
L’il Garlic Loaves
These individual garlic breads make a cute addition to your dinner table, alongside spaghetti or lasagne. The yummy, cheesy and garlicky butter melts into both cut side of buns while baking.
Tzatziki Devilled Eggs
Devilled eggs are an old-fashioned crowd pleaser. We’ve spiced them up with our spicy tzatziki dip. Eggs closer to their expiry date are easier to peel than eggs with a far-off expiry date.
