Something different . . . appetizer request
« on: March 21, 2018, 06:58:40 PM »
I'm having a St. Pats party this coming Saturday (I know, I'm a week late ;)) with the corned beef and cabbage as the main meal, but I'm looking for something different to serve as appetizers that would go well with the main meal.

Cheese/crackers or veggie tray is amongst my usual apps, but I'd like to serve something unique that would go with the main meal.

Any thoughts?

Not too unique, but what about deviled eggs sprinkled with chopped parsley or chives for a bit of green. Or maybe potato pancakes.

What about colcannon patties? Like make colcannon and form it into patties, bread them, and shallow fry?

Since apples are popular in Irish desserts, use apples in an appetizer:

Beer cheese dip or Dubliner cheese spread.

This is green and white. I used to bring it to office potlucks by request. It is not exactly light, my boss named it "Pesto Fatalyzer." You can used purchased pesto instead of homemade. The recipe suggests a loaf pan. You can use any sort of bowl or mold that fits. The original actually used a plastic wrap lined flowerpot. Don't let the spread sit more than overnight, or the green will bleed into the white. You can unmold & keep refrigerated. Served with crackers.

too late for you, but anyway...

at Happy Hour pre-St.Pat's, the restaurant served mini Shepherd's Pies.

These all sound great! Thanks! ;D

I think I'm going to go with the Pesto Torte or beer cheese dip served with lightly toasted soda bread.

The apple fries (in the link from TeamBhakta) sound really good.

Thanks for the ideas!

Not really for your theme but a couple of good ones that aren't a lot of work:

Sliced deli ham, spread with cream cheese, wrapped around a pickled asparagus spear and cut into bite sized lengths.

Or asparagus spears wrapped in prosciutto or bacon and roasted until the meat is cooked.

Something beer and cheese? Beer and cheese fondue? Cheesy beer bread? Snake-shaped breadsticks, either plain or wrapped around sausage (a fancier pigs-in-a-blanket)? Savory pinwheels plated in a snake shape? Charcuterie platter with meat arranged like a snake? I think you could have fun with the theme.
