Hey you guys.
Is anyone else a bit of a late bird?
If you tend to fall behind schedule during the holidays, then, find yourself playing kitchen door bouncer... Try this pre dinner platter to please your hungry, dinner, guests.
At the core, are three simple recipes (all linked below), bacon wrapped dated, zucchini chips, and garlic bread. Then, simply add one type of vegetable, a fruit (fresh or dried), a bit of cheese, and some nuts. Finish is off with some type of sauce, or dip, that compliments at least 2-3 items on the platter.
The concept is derived from your basic charcuterie board or graze box. However, I find that adding cooked items, takes it to another level. Also, the majority of items can be portioned out by specified amounts, which makes shopping and prep simpler. While you can create a large platter or board for serving, I prefer using smaller vessels, for each guest (as pictured above).
