If you could call me, I could tell you faster than I can type.

Here's a blast from the (DC) past

Mozzarella S'mores (Mozzarella, basil, tomatoes)

Mozzarella S'Mores

In the appy catagory, I posted a recipe for Spanish Mushroom Tapas - You can use the bread of choice.

Majorcan Mushroom Tapas

In my files, I remember a strawberry crostini - could look it up if you like. (If I recall, strawberries, spinach leaves, mozzarella? & balsamic.?)

Tapenade

Pate

Caponata

Marinated artichokes hearts (or asparagus), roasted red peppers, black olives, onions

Smoked salmon + anything, lol on foccacia, maybe

Not really crostini, and sitting on a muffin, but they make me smile Any excuse for chocolate, right? :




S'Morffins

- 6 English Muffins lightly toasted and buttered
- 8 milk chocolate bars (1.55 ounces each) divided
- 3 cups miniature marshmallows, divided
- 3 pints super-premium vanilla ice cream
- 1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped and toasted walnuts, divided
- hot fudge or caramel sauce, warmed (optional)


Place muffins on foil-lined baking sheet. Break chocolate bars into squares. Top each muffin half with eight (8) chocolate squares. Broil, in preheated broiler, to just lightly melt chocolate. Arrange 1/4 cup marshmallows on each muffin half; press into melted chocolate. Broil muffins about 6 inches from heat source, until the marshmallows are puffed and golden brown and chocolate has melted. Scoop ice cream onto prepared muffin halves; then top with 2 tablespoons walnuts. Spoon heated fudge or caramel sauce over each S’morffin, if desired. Serve immediately.

TIP: Rotate pan to toast marshmallows evenly.

Serves 12

I don't have a recipe for eggplant stuffing, but I have one I make for my kids that we call eggplant sandwiches..It's simple, I dip eggplant in flour, then egg then seasoned breadcrumbs, then fry in evoo. I lay the slices on a lightly oiled cookie sheet, then put a slice of provolone on then top with another slice of eggplant, I then make a lemon,butter,parsley, white wine sauce to pour over the top, I don't put much of the sauce maybe a tablespoon on each sandwich..It's also good as is without a sauce and a nice marinara works well too. Me I just eat as is without sauce or anything but a little salt..

I like crostini with goat cheese & a creamy marsala mushroom. I used to be able to find this artisian bread with pears & hazelnuts, it was divine with the goat cheese & mushroom combo. To make the mushrooms just saute with rosemary and s&p until the liquid is mostly gone, throw in some sweet marsala wait and again wait until the liquid evaporates. Then add a little cream and some flour or roux to thicken if you need to or you can let it cook down. Also good on noodles with shaved gruyere.

I think roasted garlic & brie stuck under the broiler would be good too.

let me know how you like it! I love the salty & sweet combination of the tart goat cheese and sweet mushrooms. Sounds like I will have to make it soon too! It has been a long time since I've made it. dh doesn't like goat cheese so I will make it next time he works. Thanks for the reminder! Maybe in the future we should have a crostini night dine with us!
