Thread: Outside the work or a couch?

    Default Outside the work or a couch?

    Hor's d'oeuvre or canapes? perhaps entree volantes? technically served
    after the soup rather than before the meal, but i am a bit bored with
    deviled eggs & cheese straws ....hmmmm...even stuffed mushrooms seem
    repetitive, now pates Mazarine? a small pastry case filled with a
    druxelles? Dollop of cheese on top? i've wanted to make 'rissoles' ever
    since i heard them referenced on the BBC sitcom "Are you being served?"

    Tartlets Marly seems interesting but its too late to think of altering
    the basic recipe.

    Tartlets Marly
    ----------------------

    Prepare some deep tartlet cases and coat the insides with a thin layer
    of fine game sausage [forcemeat],
    Fill them with thin small slices of cooked breast of pheasant and
    truffle mixed with pheasant flavored salmis sauce. Cover with a layer
    of the same sausage and place in the oven for a few minutes to cook;
    serve from a cloth [serviette.]

    And i don't have pheasant or truffles handy. Though a fine chicken and
    shrimp sausage, with slices of chicken, perhaps a butter, garlic,
    shallots, mushroom & wine sauce...

    The hor's d'oevure recipes are small meals in themselves, the canapes
    are just settings for a flavored butter or other small bit of something.
    What's that term "amuse bouche"?

    Several small bowels of compound butters & various breads?

    *sigh* oh well i can dream....at least this year my regular bowl of
    olives will be marinated & from the local Italian deli rather than a can
    to be accompanied by the ubiquitous celery & carrot sticks, 'cocktail'
    bread, cheese, fruit & wine. I do have an Escoffier recipe for
    marinated radishes.....i wonder if i could do a radish rose & then
    marinate it? hmmmm....come to think of it some daikon & hearts of palm,
    thinly sliced might be nice.

    With a little editing this canapes a la danoise might be doable

    Canapes a la Danoise
    ---------------------------------

    Heat a slice of brown bread cut to the usual size, coat it with a layer
    of Horseradish Butter and cover this with strips of smoked salmon.
    --

    The unedited version has the salmon layered alternately with thin strips
    of herring fillets marinated in white wine and lines of caviare.

    You had me salivating there, Joseph, until you got to “bowels”.

    A radish rose will open more if you marinate it or soak it in ice water.

    People who try to embrrass everyone into living at a mediocre level that
    they personally can cope with deserve what they end up with. That would be
    friends incapable of nothing but the mediocre.

    Missed the OP, so I am replying via Google. My husband's family isn't
    the adventurous foodie type, so we'll have ethnic food for hor's
    d'oeuvres and side dishes ... but it will be *their* ethnic food.
    LOL!

    The thought of compound butter peaked my interest. Do you have any
    fairly mainstream compound butter recipes (that would be good for
    slathering on biscuits or rolls) to post?

    BTW: Stuffed mushrooms still sound great to me!

    Wasn't Spun Honey a commercial version of the same combo? I used to buy it
    till it got too pricey.

    ===========================
    Boldly I stand and cheer for Grape Jelly Meatballs:

    1 bottle cocktail sauce (as for shrimp)
    1 small jar grape jelly
    1 lb package frozen meatballs (Hormel or Armour)

    Nuke your balls, Heat your jelly and sauce.
    Add meatballs to sauce. Serve over buttered noodles.

    Not just for canapes anymore!

    Yes, it was, but I think a tad less butter. Mom always made it at home.

    The one I made at home was mixing honey and peanut butter. No jelly.

    IIRC, mom used to use a hand mixer to whip the butter while slowly
    drizzling in the honey until it reached the point she liked. She’d pack it
    into a crock and refrigerate it. It was nicely spreadable chilled, and
    melted nicely onto the biscuits. While I love peanut butter, I’m not a fan
    of it actually mixed with anything. I like it spread on bread, then adding
    a layer of preserves. Never tried it with honey.

    Perfect! I'll do that. It's a combo that's not too weird for my

    Beef in plum sauce is a favorite around here. Local Chinese place makes
