Garden Party Savory Bites Perfect For Summer Gatherings
By NADS WILLOW
Spinach Artichoke Bites
This snack is crispy on the outside and cheesy on the inside. Puff pastry cases hold in an egg, milk, and cream center with Neufchatel cheese, and sour cream added too — while spinach and marinated artichokes define the savory taste, with Parmesan adding a tangy topping.
Sous Vide Egg Bites
Filled with gruyere, the sweetness of roasted red peppers and the green goodness of spinach enhance the flavor in these, but you can experiment with different veggies and cheeses. What makes the texture so fluffy and velvety is the way they're cooked in a sous vide water bath.
Cranberry Brie Bites
A smooth and soft slice of Brie sits atop a toasted baguette slice drizzled with honey and the cheese contrasts brilliantly with the sweetness and tartness of sugared cranberries. On top, some chopped mint and a pinch of rosemary salt are sprinkled over the fruit.
Crustless Zucchini Quiche
A quiche without the crust cuts down on heavy pastry. While this recipe adds zucchini, you can use a variety of ingredients and you may even decide to make this dish with the leftover vegetables from your other summer gathering delight.
Cheesy Puffy Tacos
With just five minutes of prep time to make 18 deliciously cheesy puff pastry bites, cooked in less than half an hour, this recipe is a must-try for any party. The puffs are served with a sour cream and adobo sauce dip that cuts through the meaty pastry.
