Definition: "prosciutto is an Italian-style raw ham, a specialty of Parma, cured by dry-salting for one month, followed by air-drying in cool curing sheds for half a year or longer. It is usually cut into tissue-thin slices that highlight its intense flavor and deep pink color. The slices are enjoyed on their own or are heated or cooked as part of a recipe. Prosciutto di Parma, imported from Italy, is regarded as the best quality."

Whenever DH and I want to drink wine and watch movies, we will get french bread, slice into rounds, and schmear on some Boursin/chèvre (spreadable goat cheese) and lay on a piece of prosciutto. Mmmmmmm...scrumptious.

But I also tried this one recipe where you take the same french bread rounds, put on the same type of Goat cheese, but top it with a small slice of quality salami, a thin slice of seeded roma tomato (or for smaller pieces of bread, cherry tomato), and a chiffonade (thin slivers) of fresh basil. I also cracked some black pepper on it. It was SO good.

I can't give you firm directions, b/c it's always been by taste, but easy as sin is to get a can of salmon and whip it with cream cheese and a little mayo. Salt and pepper to taste. Really good on mini bagel/toasted bagel rounds.

When in doubt, and when I really have to serve people but don't have time to cook, it's always good to go buy a selection of artisanal cheeses, from various regions, put them on a prety platter with labels, along with some sliced fruit (apples/pears), a dish of seasoned nuts (just not peanuts ), a bowl of greek olives and some really amazing slices of bread and a variety of crackers. I could spend all day noshing on something like that. And if you have a soft cheese, depending on it's flavor, you can always mold it into a round log and roll it into cracked pepper, or fresh herbs. It looks lovely but is just so easy. (and if you're serving all that with red wine, I always have to have some pieces of super dark chocolate put out )

Super Fast Greek Tartlets

Use a box or two of Athenos phyllo shells (I usually stock up when they are on sale for $1.50 per box...they keep in the freeser forever).
Fill with a bit of olive tapenade topped with crumbled feta cheese.
Put on a baking sheet and warm for about 8 minutes in a 350-degree oven.


You can fill those little shells with any combo you like. Chicken salad or salmon spread works well too.

I've got a favorite standby-i usually keep the ingredients on hand for emergencies-a little messy in the prep but sooo worth it

2-3 cans whole water chestnuts-drained
soy sauce
sweet/sour or "Duck" sauce-large jar

Soak water chestnuts in soy sauce-at least 30 minutes or more;drain and wrap 1/2 slice of bacon around them and secure with toothpick.Broil until bacon crisps up and then put in a bowl and cover with Duck sauce-can be re-heated in the microwave
MMMMM salty and sweet-n-sour
maybe it's time to make a batch now

Scallops in bacon is wicked easy. Just wrap the scallops in bacon and cook in 350 for about ten minutes.

Seven layer dip. This is always a huge hit. I am always asked to bring this to parties now.

soft cream cheese
sour cream
shredded cheddar cheese
purple onion
black olives
taco seasoning package

Mix soft cream cheese and sour cream with taco seasoning package. Drain salsa and then add on top. Then add all of the other ingredients putting the cheese on the top and the olives for last. You can add jalapenos to the very top if you like. Serve with nacho chips. People go crazy for this.

Stuffed Mushrooms

1 lb mushrooms (15 - 20)
1/2 cup of butter
1/4 cup green onions
1/4 cup sauterine wine
1 cup of herb seasoned croutons crushed.

Clean mushrooms. Remove stems. Dip caps in melted butter. In small skillet saute chopped mushroom stems and onion in remaining butter. Remove from heat; add wine and croutons.

Bake at 350 for 10 - 15 minutes.

This is also a real crowd pleaser.

Place pieces in a 9x13 baking pan and cover with 3/4 c. brown sugar. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes, shaking pan occasionally to keep them from sticking.
I make this similar dish, only i wrap the hotdogs in bacon
put on cookie sheet
sprinkle with brown sugar then drizzle maple syrup over them
then bake.
After stirring them i do this again ........yummy!

I have 3 recipes to share. They all are super easy.
Bacon-cheese Triscuits
Mix together shredded cheese, bacon bits (the real ones) and mayo. I don't have measurements, I just usually put enough mayo to make it sticky. Then spoon mixture on top of Triscuits that you have laid out on a pan. Bake on 325 until mixture is melted. These are always a huge hit with a unique flavor.

Ranch dip
1 package Hidden valley ranch dip mix with 16 oz sour cream.
Add 1/2 cup shredded cheese and 1/4 cup bacon bits (real ones again)
Refrigerate for about 1-2 hours before serving with crackers or chips.

OP mentioned meat balls and grape jelly. That is good, but I put meat balls in my crock pot and pour a can of pizza sauce on top. Odd combination, but very tasty!

This is my FAVORITE recipe my ex fiance's mom made it ... from Paula Dean on cooking network. I've been making it ever since and it's SO SO easy.. takes a second to make.. and everytime I've made it people can't guess what it is and RAVE over it! I substitue finely chopped carrots for tomato because i hate tomatoes...

1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 large tomato, finely chopped
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1 hard boiled egg, finely chopped
Freshly ground black pepper

In a medium size bowl, coarsely crush the crackers with your hands - you should have big cracker pieces. Add the remaining ingredients, mix well, and serve immediately. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

IT"S SO GOOD! I don't use exact measurements because I don't like mine quite as "wet" as paula's.. but it's a sure hit!

I mix one of those little jars of shrimp cocktail with softened cream cheese, then add more cocktail sauce and shrimp on top. It goes really fast at parties.
