Appetizers On A Stick

Appetizers On A Stick ~ Pick one of 3 --- or make all 3 ! Quick, easy & fun Appetizers #Appetizers #FoodOnAStick

Looks good ..?? It was great! Make all 3 kinds or just one.

I thought I'll give the blog a chance to grow before opening an E-mail and Facebook account for With A Blast, but {out of the blue} I opened both of these yesterday. I know, the Facebook page still needs a little touch-up here and there but at least it's up and running! Feel free to join ;-)

Okay, that's that and here is how I made these cute and tasty Appetizers on a Stick. (We had this on Father's Day because it is not a heavy app and we had a very rich Main meal)

Appetizers On A Stick

1 Roll Frozen Puff Pastry, defrosted
18 Medium Wooden Skewers
+/- 125g Plain Cream Cheese, softened
6 Slices of Roast Beef, (smallish slices)
6 Small Slices of Smoked Salmon
6 Italian Cherry Tomatoes
6 Bite-size Mozzarella cubes
Fresh Dill Sprigs, Fresh Parsley - sprigs or leafs, Fresh Basil leafs
Yoghurt & Herb Dressing (I used store-bought)

1.) Pre-heat oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
2.) Roll out the Puff Pastry - do not roll thinner - use a round cutter (about 2.5cm / 1") in diameter and cut 18 pieces. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes until puffy and light brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before using.
3.) Use the sharp end of the skewers and thread through 6 pieces of Basil leafs , followed by the Mozzarella and then the Cherry Tomato (I skewered it lengthwise), lastly push the stick through a round of Puff Pastry (leave the pastry in the baking sheet and "pin" it straight from there onto the skewer) Do not push it through all the way as this is the appetizers platform.
4.) Using the same method as in step 3 - start with a sprig/leaf of Parsley, place a dab of Cream cheese in the center of the Roast Beef and roll up, thread this onto the skewer and end up with a round of Puff Pastry. Repeat until you have 6 with this combo.
5.)Same method as in no 3 & 4 - but, start with the rolled up (or bundled up) Smoked Salmon, use a teaspoon and add some Cream cheese to the top piece, spreading around the stick (the Cream cheese should be "sitting" on top of the Salmon), add a sprig or 2 of Dill to the top of the C/Cheese. End with a round of Puff Pastry.

To serve: Enough for 6 persons - Place one of each type of the Appetizers on a plate and drizzle some Yoghurt & Herb Dressing on the plate.
