Easy Appetizer Party Recipes:
If you are looking for easy appetizer party recipes that involve just a bit more than opening a jar of salsa, this one is absolutely delicious.
And it involves one of my personal favorite foods - cheese!
Everyone seems to love cheese.
1 1/2 to 2 cups old or strong cheddar cheese, grated
2 tablespoons dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup flour
1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 300ºF.
Blend all of the ingredients into a soft mixture.
Roll out the cheese mixture and cut it into strips. Place the strips on a baking sheet. If you want to be fancy, you can put the cheese mixture into a cookie press and press it out on to the baking sheet.
Bake a few minutes at 300ºF until lightly browned.
- You can vary the cheese you use in this recipe but it must be a hard cheese (obviously not a cottage cheese or soft cheese like brie) and you should use a cheese with a fairly strong taste.
- Try sprinkling poppy seeds or sesame seeds on top of the sticks and press in just slightly. They will add an unexpected crunch and great taste.
