Amuse Bouche....

"A little bite of food to amuse the mouth and invigorate the palate".

Here are two ideas for an easy "amuse bouche" if you are having a small group for dinner:

Mini Deviled Eggs:

To serve 8: Boil two eggs, peel and separate egg yolk from white.  Mix yolk, 2 T mayo and 1t mustard and put into a cake frosting piping tube.  Cut each egg white into 4 long pieces.  Pipe the egg yolk onto each egg white piece and sprinkle with smoked tomato seasoning or smoked paprika, place on an appetizer spoon.  Garnish with parsley and chives:


Another quick idea is to mix up a small batch of salsa (tomatoes, garlic, onion, cucumber, chives, cilantro and salsa seasoning).  Place a small slice of herbal cheese onto an appetizer spoon ....

.....and top with tomato mixture 

These little appetizer spoons make it easy to prepare individual little "tastes" to amuse the palate!  They can be prepared ahead of time and ready to serve right before dinner is served!!

Other ideas might include:
A mini meatball
A cuke with a dollop of flavored cream cheese
A scallop wrapped in bacon
A pickled beet slice with a dollop of cottage cheese
Tomato, basil and a drizzle of balsamic

I have 12 of each style of appetizer spoons and they make it easy to  prepare these little bites and make a pretty presentation!
