When you’re trying to eat healthy, hors d’oeuvre- often high fat, salty affairs- are a challenge. You can enjoy our leek-stuffed mushrooms without blowing your healthy eating goals. Serve this elegant bite-sized nibble at your next party.
Leek-Stuffed Mushroom Caps
Hot Bottomless Bean Dip
No one can stop eating this fabulous bean dip! Increase the jalapenos and/or substitute PC Medium Fresh Salsa if you like a lot of spice.
Mini Dill Rosti
This sophisticated hors d’oeuvre will wow your guests! Making the rosti round takes a bit of practice.
Classic Baked Dip
A warm dip is sure to draw a crowd at any gathering. This smoky version is served in a bread bowl, and gets a nice crunch from water chestnuts in the spinach dip.
This bruschetta is reverse because you dip the bread into the topping instead of spooning the topping onto the bread.
Porcini Tortelloni in Brodo
Tortellini means little twists and are a small, stuffed pasta; tortelloni are large tortellini. “In brodo” is Italian for in broth. This makes a great starter to one of our PC lasagnas.
Mozzarella and Artichoke Pizza
White pizzas such as this are not tomato-based as are many pizzas and somehow seem more elegant. A rich, quick and easy appetizer.
Ricotta and Roasted Tomato Crostini
Making little toasts for crostini under the broiler is a bit fiddly, but this wire-rack oven method reduces the chances of burnt toast. Ricotta is a delicious and unusual topping.
Serrano Ham and Roasted Pear Salad
Serrano ham is a Spanish dry-cured ham, similar to Italian prosciutto but drier and firmer. It has a salty bite, so we’ve used it sparingly here, wrapping it around roasted pears for a delicious play of sweet and salty.
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
