Joy of Cooking Update: Cheese-Based Appetizers Plus

Posted by Trott

Quick rundown...

Garlic Cheese Spread: Other than that I didn't hate it as much as I thought I would given the mayonnaise base, I don't remember much about this. This is a sign that I should blog about these things very soon after doing them rather than waiting 6 weeks.

Roasted Garlic And Parmesan Spread: I liked this one. But beyond that, I can't tell you anything. See above.

Pesto Cheesecake: There might have been a small leak in the water bath. This turned out more like a light pesto cheese spread. It was good as a spread, but more work than a spread should be.

Marinated Goat Cheese With Fresh Thyme: Refrigerate a log of goat cheese in some olive oil and some chopped fresh thyme, and you're done. Hard to go wrong.

Marinated Mozzarella: More stuff than the previous recipe, and not as tasty, but again, hard to go wrong.

Fried Mozzarella Sticks: More work than buying them frozen, but it sure is fun to bread stuff and throw it in the Fry Daddy Jr.

Nachos: For real? A recipe for nachos?

Cheese Quesadillas: For real? A recipe for cheese quesadillas? Until I realize that brushing the pan with vegetable oil is what brings the awesome. I used to just put a tortilla in a non-stick pan and go. What an idiot I was! Thank you, Joy of Cooking!

Honey Yogurt Dip: I suspect this is great if you are smart enough not to put it in a blender for too long. I ended up with honey yogurt cold soup.

Crudités: The Tahini Dressing they recommend for dipping really does call out to be placed on a leafy salad instead.

Hi, T-Bone. What kind of appetizers are you doing for Thanksgiving. I do not like stuff with liver in it. Just so you know.
