Simple Hors d’Oeuvres

These aren’t going to win us any cooking awards this year or anytime soon, but hopefully these ideas might help you in a pinch when you’re looking for something to put out before dinner.

Sun-Dried Tomato and Olive Tapenade Toasts

16 baguette slices                                           $0.50

1 tablespoon olive oil                                   $0.10

salt and pepper to taste                               $free(ish)

2 tablespoons goat cheese                          $1.00

4 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes         $0.20

4 tablespoons olive tapenade                   $0.20

Total cost                                                           $2.00

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper over the baguette slices. Toast until slightly brown, about 5-7 minutes (if you had a toaster oven, this step would be much easier.)

Spread the goat cheese over the bread, divy up the tapenade and tomatoes, lay them out on a serving tray and ENJOY!

Smoked Salmon, Cucumber and Dill Crackers

1 teaspoon dried dill                          $0.10

Total Cost                                               $1.80

Spread the cream cheese on the crackers, cover with cucumber, then smoked salmon. Arrange on a tray and sprinkle with the dill. ENJOY!
