Foodie Friday: Cheesy Appetizers

, , Leave a comment

I know it is actually Saturday morning that I am posting about Foodie Friday, but I’m hoping for a little grace being as I have had laryngitis all week. I just got my voice back yesterday and I’m still undecided if it was harder to try and talk with a pathetic lack of voice or keeping my mouth shut and not uttering a word for 24 straight hours.
Anyways, onto the real point of this post, FOOD!

That’s my serious game face…

I’m still super excited about Green Bay’s win last Sunday, so this post is in honor of them! I am not really a football fan in the sense that I never sit down and really watch a whole football game on TV. But I do love competition and growing up I participated with my family in football picks each week from about the 6th grade until I left for college. It started out with just my dad, brother and I, but eventually grew to include not only my mom, but grandparents too. We each had a favorite team and my all time love has always been the Green Bay Packers! Yep, I’m a cheesehead.

In honor of celebrations and the Superbowl party I attended last weekend, here are too cheese centered appetizers, one I made for the party, the other I tried recently.

Brie, Apple & Pomegranate

Loaf of French bread
12 oz brie
1 ripe apple
1/4 cup honey
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Pomegranate seeds

This treat is easy to assemble by just slicing the loaf of bread, adding a liberal helping of brie, slice of apple, a couple of pomegranate seeds, drizzle of honey and the part that I think is most important, freshly ground pepper.

The other concoction I’m into at the moment is Caramelized Pear and Brie Crostini from Judy in her Natural Habitat. I am not a fan of blue cheese, so I decided to skip that and the chives. Thus creating a sweet bite, but with still a balance of savory with the brie.
