We're having this cocktail party on the 23rd and I have to make a
bunch of appy's. I haven't got a clue about what to make! I have a
stove top and a microwave and a BBQ but no oven, so I can't do
anything that requires baking. Any ideas?

What kind of ingredients can you get? A very easy appetizer is to let a
block of cream cheese come to room temperature, then top with a jar of
raspberry preserves. Serve with crackers. For an extra kick, mix the
raspberry preservers with a chopped chipotle pepper.


The following has been a hit every time I've served it:

Delicias de salmon (yes, I just made up the name)

1 baguette, cut in slices
1 cup creme fraiche (see below if you can't get this)
1/2 cup goat cheese
1-2 canned chipotle peppers
1/2 lb smoked salmon (more if you like it a lot)
capers
baby arugula for garnish (could substitute parsley)

Chop the peppers finely and mix with the creme fraiche and the goat
cheese. If the mixture is too thick, add some of the canned peppers'
juice. Taste and season with salt and pepper. If it's too strong for
your taste, add a tbsp of honey to balance the flavors.
Top each bread slice with smoked salmon. Add about 1 tbsp of cream and
top with capers. Garnish with baby arugula.

Variations include to add some chopped scalions or cucumber to the
cream, or even olives.
If you can't find creme fraiche do the following. Get a pint of heavy
cream, warm it up on the stove. Add 1 tbsp yogurt and let sit for a few
hours. Once it's thick, refrigerate and presto: creme fraiche!

Tuna stuff to stick on toast, jatz, whatever:

Tuna with:

Chili paste
lemon and pepper
Basil & tomato
wasabe and soy
sesame seeds, lemon grass & coriander
Mushrooms & bacon


And I'm always happy to eat soft white cheese (philedelphia, ricotta etc
etc) with sweet chilli sauce & guacamole with my chips / jatz/ wedges /
toast / dippy things too.

Dips are usually popular, and don't usually require much work. My favoret
is California Dip, made by combining one envelope of Lipton Onion Soup Mix
with one pint of sour cream. Serve with chips and/or assorted veggies -
baby carrots, broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, celery, red bell
pepper, mushrooms or whatever.

Rob's SIL makes this cracker spread

1 8 oz package cream cheese
1 C. chili sauce
3/4 C. chopped green pepper
1/2 C chopped green onions
1 can tiny shrimp
1/2 C chopped black olives
8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese

spread cream cheese on large plate. Cover with chili sauce. layer the
rest of the ingredients on top in the order given. Serve with crackers.



Chili Been Dip
With apologies to true chili affectionados

2 cans chili without beans
1 large jar cheese whiz
few drops tobasco sauce
dash chili powder

heat the above ingredients on low heat, until cheese is melted and it is
mixed together. keep warm to serve, a small crock pot works nicely for
this. serve with corn, taco, or tortilla chips

Pam S. hoping you can find the ingredients for whatever recipes you choose



It sounds different, but we love it.

Got a crock pot? One of the best things I ever served at a company pot luck
was chicken thighs which had been browned (okay you don't have an oven;
could brown them on the BBQ or in a large skillet). Then you put them in a
crock pot with a little light soy sauce, slice up some ginger root, garlic,
chopped spring onion, I think I threw a small but not too hot pepper in.
You could also use a mild chili-garlic sauce, I'm thinking. Anyway,
slow-cook on low for several hours until the chicken thighs are tender and
serve with a little of the sauce spooned over.

I'm sure you could do this *very* slowly on a stove-top; you'd have to make
sure you stir it frequently. Everyone loved this and IIRC it was based on a
recipe my mom got when we lived in Bangkok.

This is a very simple appetizer I got from somewhere years ago. All
you need is some cotto salami slices and some cream cheese. Spread
the cream cheese on the salami, and roll it up (cream cheese inside);
fasten with several toothpicks, and then cut (three pieces seems to
work well). Voila! Instant, high-protein and yummy appetizer.

omg! I posted a recipe!

Quick, easy and fairly popular. Either cocktail hotdogs, or small meatballs
in warm BBQ sauce.

Or even just cheese and crackers. Maybe make a cheese ball.

For dips, an easy and yummy one is an approximatley 1:1 mix of corn relish
and sour cream.

And just plain old hoummous with toasted lebanese or other flat bread
(toasted till its stiff and crunchy) is a low fat and yummy alternative too.

So it Tzatziki (cucumber dip) and cottage cheese with crushed pineapple
through it.

I do a version of this with crab instead of shrimp minus the mozzerella.
