These are so easy and quick - great to have on file for last minute party ideas!

No quantities required - make as much or little as you please!

Your favorite deli roast beef - I like Dietz and Watson eye round

Sour cream, horseradish, chives - mix to your taste

Slice the roast beast into 1 inch long strips, roll them uplengthwise, skewer with a toothpick. Make the sour cream mixture, place in a bowl in the center of a platter, and arrange the skewers around it.

I keep going back to what my mother had on the table for guests:

A woden cutting board with a big wedge of Swiss and a big wedge of Brie, a container of sweet butter and some Ritz crackers. Sometimes another small board with a great piece of salami.

Somebody mentioned Mozzarella sticks. Sometime here soon, I'm going to get a big mess of those, and make some fried mozzarella sticks. I don't have a recipe, yet, but the technique is fairly simple.

Set up a standard breading station with a large bowl of flour, a bowl with an egg wash, then a bowl with some Italian bread crumbs, regular breadcrumbs seasoned with Italian seasonings, or cracker crumbs. Also, have a sheet pan lined with parchment paper ready. It really helps if you have enough counter-space to line all these up in a row.

Take some Mozzarella "String Cheese". Yes, the stuff they market as a kiddie snack! Cut them in half, so that they are about 1 1/2 - 2" long. It helps is the cheese is cold, so that as it sits, it "sweats" a bit as moisture condenses on it. Place some of the cheese into the flour, shake it around, dip it into the egg wash, then into the breading. You may have to cover the cheese with some of the breading and lightly press down to adhere the breading to the egg wash. Place the breaded cheese sticks onto the sheet pan. Repeat until you have breaded all the cheese sticks you want (or have the patience to do).

FREEZE the cheese sticks! This is the most important part. This allows the breading to completely cook before the cheese melts and oozes out through the breading.

Deep-fry the cheese sticks in 350°F oil for about 2 minutes, or just until the cheese starts to "ooze out". Serve with a good Marinara sauce, or Ranch dressing.

Also, you can do a beer batter. Just replace the egg wash and the final breading with the batter. You also want to cut the cheese and freeze, then go with the flour and beer batter. Cook immediately.
Peace, Love, and Vegetable Rights!

Allen, for the real deal, try these -


4 oz. fresh mozzarella cut in ½ inch thick slices
¼ cup flour
½ - 1 cup bread crumbs
1 large egg, beaten
2T grated Romano cheese
3 T. milk

Mix together milk, Romano cheese, egg, salt/pepper. Dip mozz. slices into mixture, then coat with bread crumbs.

Heat a skillet over medium high, add oil to a depth of ½ inch; when oil is hot, add cheese and fry til browned. Turn to other side and fry another 1-2 minutes. Drain and serve with marinara sauce.
