Fruit & Herb Skewers

 

I made these a few weeks ago for a BBQ and they were an absolute hit. Everyone gobbled them up! Not only are they pretty and delicious, but they are also so simple to make and only take a few simple ingredients! Love that ; )

1.) Choose one or all of the following berries: Strawberries or Blackberries, Raspberries, Blue Berries

2.) Mozzarella Cheese, chopped or balled 

3.) Fresh Mint &/or Basil leaves

4.) Rasperry or Strawberry vinagrette if desired

Prep: If using strawberries chop or quarter them into smaller pieces. For other berries, leave whole. For cheese, chop or use a melon baller to get chunks that are about the size of your berries. I luckily found pre-chopped mozzarella at my local deli, yay! Small skewers work best for this delicate kabob so buy smaller ones if you can find them or what I did was just cut regular skewers in half using wire cutters from hubbies garage (wash them first).  For the herbs smaller leaves are better so you can tear the bigger leaves in half if needed. Now we are ready to assemble: Add one berry to skewer, followed by 1 cheese chunk, followed by 1 basil or mint leaf and repeat! Easy peasy. When all assembled place on a simple white plate if you have one, the colors really pop off the white. Drizzle with a little dressing or eat em up as is. Trust me these are delish.

Enjoy! ~ Bobbie Socialite

Remove stems from mushrooms. Mix up cream cheese with bacon bits, green onion and blea cheese crumbles, stuff inside your mushroom caps and bake at 350 for approx 30 minutes. Delicious and so easy! No need to measure or be exact with your ingredients. Use what you have on hand and have fun with it. These tasty little treats are yummy with crab meat, chopped veggies, sausage or just cheeses.
