 Here are some appetizers/party food ideas...I have made all of them and recommend them... Enjoy!!

 

Bacon-wrapped asaparagus= yummy but I laid the bacon over top not wrapped...Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

 

1 lb fresh asparagus

8 -10 slices bacon

Directions:

  1. Wash and trim asparagus spears.
  2. Cut bacon strips in half crosswise.  Wrap one-half strip bacon around each asparagus spear, leaving tip and end exposed.
  3. Lay on a cookie sheet with sides.
  4. Bake in a preheated 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until bacon is cooked.
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature.

************ 

added a little slice of butter and some garlic powder between layers. YUMMMY 400 for 30min. Potato cups (layers of potatoes)

4 large potatoes, Butter, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt pepper, olive oil

Directions:

Slice potatoes thin, put all slices into a bowl and drizzle with olive oil, add salt/pepper to taste.

Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray and begin layers of potatoes sprinkling cheese and garlic powder every few ..

I usually place 4 thin slices to start then do a layer of the cheese/garlic powder, place 4 more and continue pushing down on the layers until they reach as high as I want them too...they will cook down a bit..

Chicken Pot Pie Bundles= OH MY LORDY YUM!Chicken Potpie Bundles

 Ingredients

1½ tablespoons canola oil, divided

  • 1/2 small onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon or 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1 cup all-natural chicken broth
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup frozen carrots/ peas, thawed
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 12 egg roll wraps (NOT the smaller wonton wrappers)

Directions 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook 1 minute more.
  2. Stir in the chicken, tarragon, salt, and pepper. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  3. Place the broth and cornstarch in a bowl and whisk until well combined. Add to the skillet along with the peas and corn, and bring the liquid to a simmer, stirring constantly. Continue to simmer and stir gently until the sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
  4. To prepare the bundles, use a muffin pan with 12 medium-size cups (do not coat with nonstick cooking spray). Gently place 1 egg roll wrap into each cup, letting it extend over the sides.
  5. Place a generous 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture into each wrap, and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top. Fold the corners up and over the top of the filling and press to seal the edges (it doesn't have to be perfect!). Brush the remaining oil on top of each bundle.
  6. Bake until golden and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly before eating.

***************

Halved Potatoes, cooked face down on a layer of butter, garlic salt, Parmesan cheeseParmesean Baked Potato halves

Ingredients

  • 6 small potatoes, scrubbed and cut in half
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • garlic powder
  • other seasonings (to personal preference)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter and pour into a 9x13 inch pan and spread evenly across the bottom. Generously sprinkle parmesan cheese and lightly sprinkle other seasonings all over the butter. Place potato halves face down on the butter and seasonings. Place in preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Cool for at least a FULL 5 minutes before removing from the pan, otherwise the parmesan crust won't stick to the potato. Serve on a plate with a side of sour cream for dipping.********
