Need Help with Appetizers

sweeterpea Dec 21, 2007 11:19 AM

Picked up chocolate flatbread and rosemary gorgonzola scones today; they are yummy but a little bit at a loss of what to serve with/top them with for appys.

The chocolate flatbread has a subtle chocolate flavor and are not sweet. I was thinking perhaps wild boar pate, but was hoping for more ideas. Thanks!

    Some kind of pear or cranberry and honey concoction would be good with the scones.

      After wild boar pate, almost any other idea would seem much too humdrum.:}

          I don't know if anything here will inspire you. I haven't even read thorough the entire list. Perhaps there is some sort of topping listed that will make you say, "Ah HA! Just the thing!"
          Good luck with that whole wild Boar pate, thing... :-}

      How about a salmon tartar, or mousse.... a minced shrimp and creme fraiche( or other binder) mixture with minced cilantro, date and apple chutney, tomato/mozz/basil, grilled eggplant/roasted tomatoes/goat cheese.....
      If I think of more, I'll be back!

        Appreciate the link, Tay.

        Thanks, Gio, that sounds great! I had a thought baloon and thought of baked brie with cranberry relish for the chocolate flatbreads, plus thinly shaved parma ham and onion jam for the scones.

            Someone here posted a recipe here for cranberry chipotle chutney that I served with baked brie over Thanksgiving and it was fantastic.

          Duck liverwurst- an inexpensive-ish alternative to foie gras pate- but any chicken/duck liver, topped with chopped dried cranberries, and/or chopped pistachio.
