I will be very busy next week, as a family member is having surgery. I have some cut turkey appetizer picks (like toothpicks) I would like to use. Any easy ideas or recipes for how I can use them would be appreciated. Thanks
I meant to write cute not cut........
I also use cubed pieces of swiss cheese or cheese of your choice
Cut cheese in small cubes, and wrap a thin slice of ham around the cheese.
Hold together with a toothpick.............................................................
or a cube of cheese, ham, grape or other favorite fruit.........................
From: Rachael Ray
Tomato Stacks:Slice fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. Layer the mozzarella and whole basil leaves between two slices of tomato. Season with salt and pepper and secure with a toothpick.
Salad-on-a-Stick:Skewer cucumber squares, black olives, cut green peppers, cherry tomatoes and cubes of feta cheese. Drizzle with vinaigrette.
Ham-and-Pineapple Bites with Brown-Sugar-Mustard Dip:Skewer 1-inch pieces of pineapple and 1-inch cubes of deli ham. Mix together mustard, orange juice, brown sugar and a pinch of ground cloves; serve the dip with the skewers.
Cocktail Skewers:Thaw frozen, cooked shrimp. Skewer the shrimp and red bell pepper squares and keep chilled. Mix together sour cream, dill and lemon juice; serve the dip with the skewers.
They sound adorable. I'd love to know where you found them
Pepperoni and cheese picks are always nice and so is grape tomatoes with cheese.
Even shrimp on a pick is nice and the same with olives.

This was posted two years ago by "Linda", which one I don't know. She mentioned it came for the TOH Appetizer magazine. I have made it several times and it is very popular. Easy, too.
1/3 c. olive oil
1 Tables. chopped oil packed sun dried tomatoes
1 Tables. minced fresh parsley (I use dried and a little less)
1 teas. crushed red pepper flakes
1 teas. dried basil
1 teas. minced chives
1/4 teas. garlic powder
1 lb. cubed part skim mozzarella cheese
In a large reseabable plastic bag, combine the first seven ingredients; add cheese cubes. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish; serve with toothpicks.
I had no idea I would get so many suggestions. They all sound wonderful. I will have to read throught them again to decide. As for the 'picks'.......a friend bought a box of them last year and gave me what she had left. I put them in a zip lock bag and saved them for this year. Thanks again, everyone.
