Mini Caprese Skewers
Berry-sized tomatoes, fresh fluffy mozzarella, basil leaves, thick balsamic glaze, toothpick.
Knitting them together:
Skewer a tomato, followed by a mozzarella ball, garnished with a basil leaf. Gloss it up with a balsamic glaze drizzle, and you’re good to go!
Cucumber discs, creamy cheese, aromatic dill or chives, slices of bread.
Bringing it to life:
Spread cheese generously on bread slices, sprinkle dill/chives, and top it off with crisp cucumber slices. Cut into petite triangles for that elegant high-tea touch.
Mini Sliders (A.K.A. Bite-sized Burg-joy)
Bun-nies (wee buns), wee patties (beef or veggie), wee cheese (just kidding, full size cheese cut to fit 😉 ), whatever toppings you fancy.
Show the patties some heat, melt cheesiness on top, and assemble your mini joy-burgers.
Spinach and Feta Stuffed Mushrooms
Large mushrooms, fresh spinach leaves, crumbled feta, garlic, swish of olive oil.
Making it happen:
Scoop the mushroom stems, and tuck in with a sautéed mix of stems, garlic, and spinach showered with feta snow. Bake these babies to perfection.
