Are you one of those people like me that have oodles and oodles of vintage cookbooks lying around? I finally decided to do something about it, you know – try the recipes.  This recipe came from 100 Best Holiday Appetizers.  Not a bad one to start with – who doesn’t love appetizers?

I’ve done about 10 recipes so far and I’ve had two winners – this recipe and Slow Cooker Raspberry-Balsamic Glazed Meatballs.  

Aren’t you glad you have someone testing them for you?  The only change I made to the original recipe was to use Italian panko bread crumbs instead of plain ones, the Italian version offers more flavor.

I love to create my own recipes, but I also think about all the yummy dishes that are tucked away in my cookbooks, long forgotten.  So  I’ll be doing a mix of recipes of both mine and from vintage cookbooks.
