  • **Having a Card Party -- Need TNT Finger Food, Will You Share Your Best, Please? **
    We're having a euchre party on Saturday night and I want to serve some finger food that isn't messy. I'm totally drawing a blank on what to serve! Everything I think of requires silverware, plates, and messy fingers!

    Help! TIA!

    Tortilla pinwheels are good and relatively neat finger foods.

    I can think of lots of messy, sticky things, just in case you're interested. That's really fun to play cards when there is cheese dip and barbecue sauce on your hands! :)

    Chex mix is good too, or you could make the mixture of peanuts and candy corn, All you would need is a napkin for that or a small plate to hold it.

    How about the dill pickle recipe posted. I think the whole pickle was wrapped in cream cheese and ham then sliced. Also, here is my pretzel recipe.

    BUTTERY ONION PRETZELS

    1 1/4 C butter
    1 envelope dry onion soup mix (I use beefy)
    1 pkg. (16 oz) chunky pretzels (broken into pieces, I use ones already in nugget shape or really like the ones that look like little waffles!)

    In a skillet, melt butter. Stir in soup and mix well. Add pretzels & toss to coat. Spread into a ungreased baking pan. Bake @ 250 for 1 1/2 hrs. stirring every 15 m
    Now, I usually dbl. the recipe and use my 17" pan and just melt the butter in that and add the soup. I've also started adding a handful or two of mixed nuts. I also tried adding french onions but after all the stirring they ended up in little pieces, not worth it.

    Roll up tight and wrap with sarahn.
    2 hours or more chilled.

    Unwrap and slice into little pinwheels and skewer with toothpicks.

    simple and easy and yummy

    This won't fit on one post so it's split in two.

    Lemon and White Chocolate Filled Squares

    1 package puff pastry sheet -- thawed
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 cups half and half or light cream
    2 ounces white chocolate baking squares or bars -- chopped
    4 egg yolks -- beaten
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/3 cup whipping cream
    1/3 cup lemon curd
    coarse sugar
    white chocolate curls

    Unfold pastry on a lightly floured surface. Using a 1 3/4 inch fluted square cutter, cut 25 squares out of each sheet of pastry (50 total). Place half of the pastry squares on ungreased cookie sheets. Using a 3/4 inch square cutter, cut the center out of remaining squares of pastry. Discard centers or bake separately and use as tops. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush edges of pastry squares on the cookie sheet with egg white and top with a pastry square with the center removed to form a square cup. Use a fork to seal edges. Brush tops with egg whites and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden. Transfer to wire rack and cook. Place in an air tight container and store at room temperature for up to 24 hours, if desired.

    continued.

    For pastry cream, stir together the granulated sugar, flour, and salt in a heavy medium saucepan, gradually stir in half and half or light cream and white chocolate baking squares or baking bars. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Gradually stir half of the hot mixture into the beaten yolks; return all of the yolk mixture to the saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat, cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in vanilla. Cover surface of pastry cream with plastic wrap. Cool until warm (about 1 1/2 hours); do not stir. Beat whipping cream in a small bowl with an electric mixer on medium high speed until soft peaks form. Beat in lemon curd until combined. Fold whipped lemon cream into the warm pastry cream. Cover and chill for 2 to 6 hours. To serve, spoon or pipe some of the filling into square pastry cups. Garnish with white chocolate curls and lavender. Makes 25 servings.
    NOTES : Instead of puff pastry, I served the lemon mixture in phyllo tart shells. It was also suggested the mixture could be used in miniature cream puffs or éclairs.

    marinade chicken or beef and grill with an assortment of veggies. I like mushrooms, peppers, onions. Put all items on a platter and let your guests use toothpicks to get the items they want.
