app's for southern comfort food with 25 people?
I am stumped.
I LOVE this Southern BBQ Shrimp recipe from the 7/06 edition of Bon Appetit (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...).
It's ridiculously easy and so tasty. Basicly you combine melted butter, lemon juice, worcestshire, Old Bay seasoning & brown sugar and use half of it to toss into a bowl of shrimp. Put shrimp w/ shells intact in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet and broil shrimp in oven for about 2-3 mins. Serve w/ remaining butter mixture for dipping and crusty baguette slices for dipping - yum!
-Pork bbq sliders on mini biscuits w/ a dollop of coleslaw
I'm sure you could do something nice with mac&cheese as an app. bruschetta maybe or I've seen it deep fried as a mac&cheese popper.
Egg salad on toast
Deviled ham on celery
Small fried green tomatoes - you could top it with a red pepper mayonnaise
Mini corn pancakes topped with sour cream and chopped country ham
Stuff won ton wrappers with cooked collard greens and country ham and fry
Buttermilk chicken strips - you could even serve it with warm cream gravy as a dipping sauce. That's about as southern comfort as it gets!
Watermelon slices, or even pickled watermelon rind
deviled eggs, pickled shrimp, blackeyed pea salad, rolls w/ pulled pork (vinegar bbq sauce), corn muffins...
