    Shrimp with cocktail sauce.

    Nothing easier. Arrange on a platter once you arrive, and place a container of cocktail sauce in the center.

    Cocktail weiners in BBQ sauce, heated in covered dish in the oven.

    Pillsbury buns - open container and divide each bun into four pieces.

    Melt some butter on the stove along with some bleu cheese. Dip these bread chunks in the sauce and then bake on a greased tray til cooked.

    They travel just fine.

    If you want exact measurements, it will have to wait til I get home. :)

    No name for this treat but they are delicious. My mother always made them for her special dinner parties, and I have continued the tradition.
    You will need 8-12 slices of hard salami (sliced medium). Mix together in a bowl 8 oz cream cheese, sofetned, , 1 tblsp milk, 1-2 tblsp horse radish, pinch parsley. Mix throughly, spread thin layer of cheese mixture on one slice of salami, top with slice of salami, spread cheese mixture on that slice, top with salami, spread mixture and top with salami. Refrigerate for several hours until firm. Slice stack in small pieces securing each with decorative toothpick.
    Arrange on serving plate, garnish with parsley, and enjoy!

    I was missing for a few Server when down....I had withdrawal!!!!!

    This is the BEST recipe; almost as good as the Dill Shrimp.Super easy! You don't have to use Pepper Jelly, you can substitute any kind of jelly, but I like one that is zippy!


    1 8 oz Pkg. Cream Cheese.
    1 Egg.
    2 Cloves Garlic.
    5 oz Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

    Mix all together in food processor. Add 4 oz of Pepper Jelly. Pour into oiled 6" spring form pan and bake at 350 for 30 mins. Place pan of water in oven while cooking to keep moist. Cool in refrigerator for several hours. Spread Jelly over top and serve with crackers.

    I like to use those little round thin crackers...sorry, I don't know what they are called ... think rice something. But anything will probably due. Let me know you like it! Everyone who has asked me for it loves it!

    Take care.

    Pip, you will love this! It's easy and travels extremely well! If you don't have a 6" springform pan, buy one cuze it's worth it if you only use it for this one's a real winner!

    I remember these from the 70s! They were called Salami Stack-Ups. I believe they were in a Family Circle or Better Homes and Garden cookbook of that era.
