Stuffed Cucumber Appetizers

Thought I'd share these cute cukes I made yesterday.
Nothing more than cutting cucumbers into think 2" pieces, hollowing out the top 2/3 of the seeded area with a small melon baller**, and then stuffing them with a mix of cream cheese, garlic & fresh basil leaves. The little red squares on top are cut from tomatoes.


(**those are the little balls around the edges. They were too cute not to use)

These look great jkath. They got me thinking i.e., I make this pineapple cheeseball around the holidays. After it's initial use it might be good to use that as the "stuffing". Thanks for the inspiration!!

Do the bottoms of the cucumbers have a hole?

I really like that idea. I'll have to remember it for next summer when we have too many cucumbers. Very pretty.

I love that idea. Do you drain them before stuffing them?

We have done something similiar - except we have chunks of cucumber halved longways. The stuffed with a minced lamb mix. I would also use a rice stuffing.
