Easy Appetizer Idea??

The faculty is having a light luncheon on Friday and I signed up to bring an appetizer. I am looking for one that is easy and requires no heating. (We don't have any ovens in our school. We do have 2 refrigerators!) In the past I've made a cheese plate, 7-layer dip and even just some onion dip and chips! I'd love something you know is a hit. Any ideas??

Cream cheese

A quick one I use is cream cheese and jelly with crackers.

The night before, I soften the cream cheese and shape it into the shape of a Christmas tree and put it back into the refrigerator. Try not to make the cheese too thick, perhaps 1/4 inch high. The day it is needed, I take out the cheese, spread it with jelly, dump out the crackers and you are done! You can use any flavor of jelly and any kind of crackers. I usually use wheat thins.

Quick, easy to transport and yummy!

red or green jalapeno apple or jalapeno strawberry jelly, it's very good on the cream cheese. Love the idea of the pp about shaping it like a Christmas tree.

Sweet and sour sauce is also good on the cream cheese. Just dump the whole bottle on there.

Here are some cold appetizers I've made that people really seem to like:

Caramelized pecans stuffed w/ blue cheese

King's Hawaiian roll sandwiches - although this recipe says to bake/serve hot, you don't have to. I've made them cold many times, although they're better if not served straight out of the fridge. You can use whatever meat/cheese combo you'd like.

Saltine cracker toffee (aka Christmas Crack)

Garlic feta dip

Roll ups - BLT, salsa, cranberry feta

Sausage balls - another one that doesn't have to be served hot. I keep mine in a sealed container and don't even put them in the fridge - they usually get eaten within a few days and have always been fine.

Ham & cheese ribbons (can use any meat, just can't have it sliced too thin)

Hot Cheese Patties

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
2 cups all-purpose flour
Cayenne pepper to taste
2 sticks butter, softened (butter only, no margarine. Don't let it melt)
2 cups Rice Krispies

Cream cheese and butter together. Blend in flour slowly. Stir in Rice Krispies and cayenne. Drop batter on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten with fork dipped in cold water to make round wafers. Bake at 375 degrees in preheated oven for 10 minutes.

This week they were tasting endive with a smear of hummus.

The week before I understand they were putting their artichoke dip on it.

Easy, healthy and doesn't need to be heated.

I was also going to serve it with cream cheese and pepper jelly.

Cream cheese block with raspberry chipotle sauce poured on top and crackers.

Spinach dip and cubes of french bread - just get the Knorr's vegetable soup mix and follow the directions on the back.

Blend frozen peas and garlic. Put on crackers or thin slices of a baguette. Sounds gross but it's really good!
