Tasty Bites...



On Friday I will be having a few people in for drinks and appetizers as Shane has his own debs ball that evening. I  spotted these amazing mediterranean hors d'oeuvres online and was dying to try them out. So I gave it a go last night and here is my version which turned out to be very simple to make...

First I lined a muffin tin with circles of rolled out puff pastry.Just cut to size and mould them in to make a little nest. I filled 12 just to try them out...





Next I made  two fillings which were, Pesto and mozzarella cheese and bacon,onion and slow roasted tomatoes.
For the pesto filling I just used a lovely jar of readymade pesto I had bought and never tried, filled the cases with a tsp and sliced mozzarella cheese over the top.
For the second filling I diced bacon rashers and fried with a chopped onion on a pan.I roasted baby tomatoes in the oven with olive oil for 15mins.Then added these to the bacon and onion  mix before filling the cases...


Bake in a hot oven 200c for about 15 mins until pastry is puffy and golden brown.




I'm delighted with the result, as I really just threw caution to the wind and used ingredients that I had in the house already!! I think I ate about three ... ( I'm not saying for sure!) when they emerged from the oven :) I plan on making a fresh batch Friday morning and think they'd be lovely served with a bottle of chilled cava!




  A great little appetizer for all the party nights ahead!!

  24. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running
    off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let
    you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.

    Thanks

  34. I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
