There was so much good food! Everyone brought something yummy to share. Here are the two things I prepared:
three cans of flaky biscuits
5 diced roma tomatoes or 2 cans petite diced tomatoes
4-5 green onions, chopped
6 oz. swiss cheese, grated
3/4 cup mayo
fresh basil (I used about 10-15 leaves), chopped
1/2 cup bacon bits (optional: our guest of honor is vegetarian so I left these out and the tomato cups were still delish!)
French Fried Onions
-Peel the biscuits apart (usually 3 layers per biscuit) and place in greased mini muffin tins.
-Blend all other ingredients except the French Fried Onions.
-Fill biscuits and top with the French Fried Onions.
-Bake at 375 for about 12 minutes.
-Serve warm or at room temp.
Yields: about 50 cups
This next recipe is one that everyone always loves! It was given to me by another good friend that has moved away. Why must all my favorite people leave North Carolina??
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/4 cup buttermilk (I have used lowfat buttermilk and also buttermilk powder in this recipe, both produced great results)
2 tbsp flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
60 phyllo cups (four boxes)
fresh raspberries (or your favorite berry)
-Blend butter, buttermilk, eggs, flour, sugar and vanilla in blender until smooth.
-Please frozen shells on a cookie sheet and fill almost full with blended mixture.
-Bake about 12 minutes at 350 degrees until puffed and golden.
-Cool and chill.
-Top with whipped cream and berry just before serving.
