How about "Peperoncini ripieni di capperi e acciughe"
Chillies stuffed with anchovies

10 Red Chillies
500ml Olive Oil
1 tspoon small capers per chilli

Slit chillies lengthwise & remove seeds (make chilli boats). Heat oil, but not to smoking point. Drop in chillies & let them steep in the oil for a couple of minutes. Take care not to overcook or the skins will come off and they will look wrinkly and unappertising.

Remove the chillies from the oil & drain on kitchen paper.

Chop anchovies & mix with capers. When chillies cool enough to handle, fill eachwith the anchovy mixture. Serve with any boiled meats or as part of an antipasto platter.

Courtesy Stephano De Pieri

They are really good.

the least that you would get is a good Canadian "barley" sandwich...usually have a pita style bread around so we can make heat and serve pizza. As with the others we usually have cheese and crackers plus we also keep lots of fresh fruit with dip. come on up Mudbug....food is on!!!Pst 8)

I keep this in my freezer for appetizer emergencies:

Smoked Salmon Spirals

500g thinly sliced smoked salmon(lox)
250g cream cheese softened
2 tbsp capers
2 tbsp minced red onion

thin sliced pumpernickel or rye bread.

Arrange salmon on plastic wrap in 12x8 inch rectangle. Spread cream cheese over salmon. Press capers and onion into row on the long edge. Roll up, jelly roll style, using the plastic wrap to guide you as you go. Seal tightly and freeze for at least 4 hours, or up to a few months.

To serve, take out and thaw for 10 minutes. Then slice into 1/4" rounds and place on bread.

This recipe looks very impressive and is super-easy! I love it.

there's always various cheeses and cured meats around the house, as well as crackers and fruit, and different kinds of mustards, so i could do a platter of those.
usually there's a jar of pickled herring, stuffed cherry peppers, pickled veggies (cukes, hot peppers, beets and onions, cherry tomatoes), so i could make a platter of those as well.
and there's always the standby cream cheese, melted, and mixed with jams or preserves, served with crackers and hot sauces...
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
Please tell me who I am

Bruschetta on fresh Euro bread, with melted provolone is sort of a household standard snack, and generally thought "presentable" for surprise company...Margaret makes a really great salsa dip for tortilla chips that is "doable within 15 minutes"...if you wanted the one using cheese and ground beef (likewise a "staple" in our freezer), you should perhaps let me into the kitchen...

Dilly sandwiches would be on the table tonight. Take a block of softened cream cheese & mix in some dried dill(to taste), spread on wheat bread that has the crust removed & rolled flat, place a whole dill pickle on short end of bread & roll up. Slice into 6-8 rounds.
