That was dinner with wine for 4. I just kept on replenishing it. We were all full at the end. But we did have alongside it clusters of grapes, pineapple wedges from the BBQ, melon balls and strawberries.
You have some very lucky friends indeed. When can we come over
Hors D' oeuvres NightvictoriabcThe hors d' oeuvre in the middle is easy and fun to cook.
1/2 cup garlic, peeled, roasted in a saucepan with olive oil until soft (save garlic oil for some other dish) then roughly chopped. 1 or 2 garlic bulbs.
1/2 cup of jalapeno jelly or mango chutney
1/2 pound Brie or Camembert round 225 grams
Cedar or other plank 5" x 5" (My husband cuts the store bought ones to size)
1. Preheat BBQ to medium high. MIx the roasted garlic and jelly or chutney together and top the cheese with it.
2. Place the cheese on the plank that has been soaked in water and patted dry. Put it directly on the BBQ. Close the lid or cover the cheese with a lid that does not squash the cheese.
3. When the plank smokes and almost on fire the cheese will be softened.
4. Remove the plank from the grill and serve with crackers and/or whatever you prefer. I added warm naan bread.
The easy part is; this can be prepared in advance, then top the cheese with the garlic and jelly mixture before putting on the grill.3 stars
