Hors d'Oeuvres Recipes


1 tablespoon butter***1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cornstarch***1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

1/2 cup thin cream***few grains cayenne pepper

1/2 pound mild soft cheese

(I use Velveeta)

Melt, over a double boiler, butter, then add cornstarch. Stir until well mixed then add cream gradually and cook for 2 minutes. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add the pepper, salt, and mustard before serving. Can use as a dip but my Mum used to serve it to us Sunday nights for supper over crackers.


This is a sure winner for Hors D'oeuvres......and so easy to put together. Just use equal amounts of barbecue sauce, any flavor, to an equal amount of grape jelly. Mix together in a crock pot or a sauce pan. Heat and then put in the wieners cut into bite size pieces. (About 6 bites to 1 dog.) Warm until the wieners get warmed clear through and take on the flavor of the sauce. They will be much darker in color than when you put them in the crock pot. Serve with toothpicks.

Just remember that the dogs will puff up some so don't overload the sauce.
