  • RE: ideas for church coffee time

    2 pkg refrigerator crescent rolls
    1-8 oz pkg cream cheese
    8 slices bacon
    1/3 c Parmesan cheese
    1/4 c onion, finely chopped
    2 T parsley, chopped
    1 egg, beaten
    1 t milk
    poppy seed
    Fry bacon until crisp; drain then crumble. Mix cream cheese, bacon, cheese, onions and parsley together and refrigerate for 1 - 2 days to marry flavors. Divide crescent rolls into triangles. Cut each triangle in half.
    Spread bacon mixture over each triangle, bring up points into a puff. Combine egg mixed with and a little milk. And brush over each triangle, then sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake 375 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes. Serve warm.

    I made these for a church function and they were a big success!

    How about a couple braids?

    Like a big Danish Cheese Braid and maybe a raspberry braid?

    They are fairly easy to make, yet are so pretty and delicious too!

    This is my topic!! I host coffee hour once a month at our church and I'm in charge of purchasing the supplies. I also coordinate the hosts for the rest of the time. Here goes.

    Crawlin Cake
    quick breads
    tortilla chips & dips or salsa
    pretzels & dip
    potato chips & dip
    veggies & dip
    stuffed breads of different kinds of fillings
    tortillas with different fillings and cut into bite size pieces
    hummus & pitas
    bar cookies
    cheese spread & crackers
    cheese balls & crackers
    fresh fruit

    Give me a clue to what kind of recipes you'd like and I'll try to help.

  • RE: ideas for church coffee time
    What about a quiche, or Taco Salad.
    A lot depends on what time of day you have your coffee. Is it before a service or off time of the week.

    Subject: Sausage Cheese Treats/Breakfast or appetizer recipe

    Sausage Cheese Treats

    1 lb. sausage (I used Jimmy Dean mild)
    1 jar Old English Cheese
    1 pack (8) English muffins-original
    Brown sausage- drain off grease.
    Add Cheese-mix well. Slice muffins in half (horizontally-you'll still have 2 rounds) Put sausage and cheese mixture on top of each muffin half.
    May put in freezer and thaw out night before baking in fridge.
    Bake at 350 degrees until edge is slightly brown.
    For appetizers, cut each into 4 triangles. Then bake.
    Someone just brought these over to my Parents house, as my Dad just had surgery. I thought these were very good(almost like sausage balls) and easy to make.

    Cheese ball and crackers?
    Fruit w/dip?
    Fruit and cheese Kabobs?
    Bagels and cream cheese?

  • RE: ideas for church coffee time
    How about Sticky Buns or Cinnamon Rolls? You could make them the night before and stick them in the refrigerator, then bake them in the morning.

    My family also enjoys Cream Cheese Danishes.

    2 pkg. Cresent Rolls
    1 8 oz cream cheese
    1/2 C - 3/4 C powdered sugar (depends on how sweet you want them)
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 - 2 tsp. lemon juice (optional)

    Mix your cream cheese, powdered sugar and flavorings. Lay one roll of cresent dough on your baking sheet making sure all the seams are pinched together, so you have one piece of dough. Spread your cream cheese mixture on top. Cover with the remaining pkg. of crescent dough. Bake at 350 degrees until nice and brown on top.

    You can make a powdered sugar glaze to go on top after the danish comes out of the oven.

    Tomorrow I'm making pizzelles (I roll them) and filling them with my all purpose filling and adding strawberries.
  • RE: ideas for church coffee time
    Do you have a bread machine? most of them have a bagel recipe in the book that came with your bread machine, its actually easy to make. And fun to make different kinds.

    These are good. My sis did these with puff pastry and they were delish!

    Source of Recipe: my sister

    3 Pkgs. Pepperidge Farm Party Rolls (be sure the rolls are very fresh)
    1 cup butter, softened
    3 Tablespoons poppy seeds (I omitted)
    3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
    1 medium onion, grated
    1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
    3/4 lb. ham, shaved
    3/4 lb. Swiss cheese, thinly sliced

    Remove rolls from tray and slice the entire sheet in half. Repeat for second and third packages - giving you six full sheets.

    Combine butter, poppy seeds, mustard, onion and Worcestershire sauce; spread evenly over inside of all 6 sheets. Place ham and cheese evenly on the 3 bottom sheets. Cover with top sheets and return to aluminum trays.

    Cut sheets into individual party sandwiches. Wrap in foil and bake at 350ºF for 15 minutes. Serve warm.

    Yields 36 appetizer size sandwiches.

    Notes: Use any brand of *party* rolls or use puff pastry. Roll out your sheet a little and proceed. Roll up so then you will have a pinwheel. Wrap in plastic wrap overnight. Slice the next day and bake as per pastry pkg instructions.

    Another suggestion: I couldn't find fresh Pepperidge Farm rolls, so I bought 12 potato buns (like hamburger buns) and made these, then cut each bun into 3 "fingers" before wrapping in foil and baking.

    Sweet Sandwich Spread

    This is a beautiful pink color filling for sandwiches. I had it at a baby shower.

    2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
    8 T. powdered sugar
    10 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained well
    10 oz. jar marschino cherries, drain, chop and drain again
    3/4 c. chopped pecans, toasted

    Mix and chill overnight.

    Spread on sandwich bread with crusts removed. Cut into desired number of pieces.

    This makes enough spread for 2 giant loaves sandwich bread.
