Hors Duorves Ideas For Party

Recommended Posts

Hope I spelled that right! We're going to a birthday party tomorrow for a family member and I was asked to bring an hors duorve. I always try to take something my husband can eat, and all my recipes are pre-celiac!

Furthermore, he doesn't like any gluten-free crackers. I'd like it to be something substantial, since he may not be able to eat much else.

Has he tried Blue Diamond Nut-Thins? They are incredible. :)

Aside from crackers, though, what about veggies and hummus? Corn tortillas would be good for dipping too. Fresh fruit with vanilla yogurt dip (I like Astro Jeunesse yogurt for this.) Asparagus spears with cream cheese and ham comes to mind too. Also proscuitto and melon, scallops wrapped with bacon.

I have a fantastic recipe for mexican dip. It's good hot or lukewarm, though it won't keep for too long since it has meat in it. I'm sure it would be fine for a birthday party. We use tostitos for dipping into it.

For the taco seasoning I use McCormick's mild taco seasoning packet. For the salsa I use Pace. I then top it with diced tomato, mild green chile's, black olives, and sour cream. It is FABULOUS. Plus, it's naturally gluten free, so no one else will ever know there's a difference. I make this for dinner sometimes, so it will fill your hubby up. You may want to double the recipe though if that will be a meal for him so that everyone else has some too. :)

This would be a great hearty appetizer for him--people rave over it!

Lemon Flank Steak Skewers

2/3 cup olive oil (I never use that much)

4 teaspoons fresh lemon zest

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons salt

4 pounds flank steak

Lemon Dipping Sauce

16 ounces light sour cream

1 Tablespoon horseradish

1 teaspoon lemon zest

3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine ingredients in a ziploc bag and add flank steak cut into 1/4" slices diagonally. Chill 8 hours or overnight.

Place wooden skewers in water to cover and soak 30 minutes. Thread steak onto skewers. Grill over med/high heat about 5 minutes on each side with lid closed.

Lemon Dipping Sauce: Chill for one hour.

Here's another one that is fabulous:

Mexican Cheesecake Appetizer

Crust

1 1/2 cups tortilla chips finely crushed

1/4 cup butter melted (maybe more)

Baked Center

19 ounces cream cheese softened

2 large eggs

2 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese with

jalapeno peppers

4 1/2 ounces chopped green chilies -- drained

1/4 tsp. ground red pepper

Topping

1 cup sour cream -- (8 oz.)

1/2 cup red bell pepper -- finely chopped

1/2 cup green bell pepper -- finely chopped

1/2 cup yellow bell pepper -- finely chopped

1/2 cup green onion -- chopped

1 medium tomato -- chopped

2 Tablespoons finely chopped olive

1/4 cup fresh cilantro or parsley chopped

(optional)

1. For the crust, crush tortilla chips into fine pieces (like a crushed graham cracker crust) and mix with melted butter. Press into a 9" spring form pan and bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. May want to line the base of the pan with parchment paper.

2. For the baked center, mix all baked center ingredients and pour over crust. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.

3. Let the cheesecake cool in the pan for 10 minutes or so. Use a knife to cut around the edges of the pan and remove the outside of the spring form pan. Cool completely on wire rack, or in refrigerator.

4. Cover cheesecake with sour cream, cover and refrigerate long enough to set the cheesecake and sour cream layer.

5. When ready to serve put the chopped toppings on and serve with tortilla chips.

I sometimes bring Delimex Beef of Chicken Toquitos with Newmans Salsa. Men gobble them up.

Lemon Flank Steak sounds really, really wonderful. In fact, they all sound wonderful. Gluten free is not such a bad thing when we have all these great things to eat. :) But, shhhhh, don't tell anyone.

I made dates wrapped in bacon for a party I had, they were fabulous.

Menjool dates

bacon, cut in half

whole almonds

Preheat oven to 400. Take pits out of dates, put in almond, wrap bacon around it. Place seam side down on cookie sheet. Bake 7 minutes, turn, bake another 7 minutes.

These went so fast.
