A unique and simple appetizer that is also perfect for your
Ketogenic and Paleo guests.
Only Three Ingredients:
Texas style okra pickles
1. Spread cream cheese onto a slice of ham.
2. Cut okra pickles to fit the width of the ham slice.
3. Roll up the ham around the pickles.
4. Slice into 1/4″ rounds. The slices don’t need to be identical, but the more consistent the size, the prettier they are on the platter.
That’s all there is to it. Enjoy!
These fruit cups were a big hit at my Halloween brunch. The
example I found online used oranges, but they seemed a bit too big with everything else I was serving, so I used Cuties.
First slice off the top of each Cutie. Use a sharp edge spoon to
separate the flesh from the peel and work your way around the fruit, going a little deeper each round. Finally, the fruit will loosen and you can slide it out as a big ball. Rinse them (and your hands–very sticky!) and set them on a towel to dry.
It might be easier with an orange than a Cutie, but carving the face was pretty tricky. It only took one for me to decide to just draw the faces on with a Sharpie. If I were doing a brunch for just a few
people, I’d probably go ahead and carve them, but for 20, it was just too much work.
Once your cups are ready, load them up with fruit. I used
blackberries, raspberries and mango, but any fruit will do.
These can easily be prepared the day ahead. Just cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
