Meet my nemesis; appetizers.
Ask me to bring something to a party and I panic.
Finger food? Dip? Bruschetta? What the heck do I make?! For some reason, my mind goes completely blank.
To remedy this, I started experimenting with this ham and cheese pastry by Ina Garten. It’s just like making a sandwich, but a classy one filled with black forest ham and Gruyère. It’s baked until puffed and golden, and then cut into squares (brilliant, if you ask me). Served warm, these scrumptious bites need nothing more than a cold cocktail in hand.
It is my go-to dish for the holiday season….
