No, this is not an appetizer recipe! But it's really good and I made appetizers from the leftovers!
I baked this up for dinner on Friday and had enough left for several more meals. Now, I can handle the same dish two days in a row, three if I love it, but after that it's time to send it to the big trash can in the sky (or freeze it for another day.)
But Saturday a friend stopped by to horn in on one of my weekly martini experiments for The Martini Diva - she's well aware I do a lot of my "mixology" on Saturday afternoons and likes free booze! I don't mind because I use her as my experimental lab rat for testing my latest cocktail concoctions! A fair trade!
I always like to serve up a little "Tiny Food Diva" nosh to complement my newest martini but I was not up to a lot of cooking, I just wanted to get to the martini. So I did my fridge grazing, spied the sausage-veggie bake and thought - hmmmm!
I grabbed some cocktail toothpicks, cut my bake elements into bite sized pieces and speared a bite of each ingredient with a toothpick, adding a few grape tomatoes to the mix, popped them in a baking dish, dusted the whole shebang with some Parmesan cheese and heated them up at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes.
Not only were they a hit, they were easy and I used leftovers! So, think about some of your entrees as Tiny Foods and get a little creative with what's sitting in your fridge tonight!
