Oh, I am DEFINITELY going to try this recipe! Not just with carrots, but with Vidalias, mushrooms, scallions, ham, green pepper, all of the above!

I have mini-muffin tins, too, so they would be a wonderful appetizer to add to our Lazy Susan. (probably not so good for csalt's cold appetizer gig, though)

I bet Eggbeaters would work great, too.

Thanks, mish!

I knew when I saw the mini carrot quiches, I would like them - but haven't had a chance to get to them. Your version looks yum, & I like the eggbeater suggestion. I think the colors and tastes of the carrot quiches & zuchinni di carpaccio would work nicely together... a few stuffed shrooms wouldn't be bad either. I'm hungry!

Mmmm, I love ramaki, Mish. We marinate ours in soy sauce, then cook under the oven broiler or on the grill. I"m afraid serving could be a little tricky for this occasion, though. They're great hot or room temperature, but they taste greasy when they're cold, and chicken livers can spoil in a hurry.

I don't know if you have braunsweiger in the UK, but I mix it with cream cheese and sliced olives to make spread that is very tasty on tea sandwiches made with rye bread.

I don't remember seeing any cheeseballs suggested. I know you're going to have a cheese tray, but you might use a cheeseball as part of it. Here's my Fiesta Cheese ball...it's always a big hit.

Don't forget to garnish your cheese tray with fruit. Grapes are nice. And have some artfully arranged fruit nearby...fresh pineapple sticks, apple slices, strawberries, melon balls, halved kiwis, etc.

Please check out this site...Ina Gartin has some excellent long-keeping canapes here. The cheese straws look like a winner, as does the spanikopita.

You could also get those containers you freeze and place them under your tray of eggs.

That's a good idea. I'd been half thinking along those lines. What I really think is was I mad to offer to do this!

Around here people make rumaki with chunks of chicken breast rather than liver. I like the liver better, but must admit that the breast is better if it has to sit out on a buffet table for awhile.

I, too, use egg-beaters quite a bit. They are handy, less cholesterol (we're getting to an age where we all have to think about it) and are pasturized so safe raw (my husband makes a mean egg nog with them).

I have a recipe for cheese biscuits that work well. They can be frozen after baked and then set out at room temp. If you want the recipe, I'll find it and post it here later. We made these for my sister's wedding so they were made about 2-3 weeks ahead and you would have never guessed it! A southern US tradition of ham biscuits is another idea. It is dinner rolls (not buns) split in half with a slice of ham inserted. Tradition states it should be cured or smoked ham but any ham coldcut will work. These are good and substantial without being hugh sandwiches.


Jabbur: I am interested in your recipe, have looked (perhaps I dont know how to search) but didnt found it, Could you post it? Thanks in advance
