5 or less ingredient appetizer recipes
Can you please pass along delicious and impressive 5 or less ingredient app recipes.
Hi Katbri, dunno about impressive but this disappears like nobody's business: roll half-slices of thick cut bacon (preferably peppered) thickly in light brown sugar; place on baking sheet and bake at 400 for half an hour or 40 minutes, till bacon is crisp and sugar is caramalized. You can also do this with lil' smokies or inch-thick slices of Kielbasa.
Chop lettuce and crispy bacon; mix w/ mayonnaise and stuff into cherry tomatoes.
Blanched asparagus spears, wrapped in pancetta, seared, and sprinkled w/ lemon zest.
Rice paper, rolled w/: rice noodles, bean sprouts, shrimp and basil (or cilantro.) Jarred hoisin or Thai sweet chili sauce for dipping.
Large mushroom caps, stuffed w/ mixture of sausage, breadcrumbs, eggs and Italian spice, and baked.
Retro, but still delicious: Steak Tartare, stuffed into purchased marinated mushrooms.
White beans, or Borlottis, stewed w/ olive oil, seasoned w/ thyme, on crostini.
Fried zucchini blossoms, stuffed or not. Delicious, and to my mind, impressive.
Oil-roasted tomatoes seasoned w/ basil; again w. crostini. Goat cheese crumble atop.
Roasted Provolone: for 4 servings; 1 3/4" slice provolone (6 oz.), pinch dried oregano, 2 T. toasted chopped walnuts. Preheat broiler to high, put cheese in a 6" ovenproof skillet. Broil cheese until browned and bubbly, 9-10 minutes. Season w/ oregano, and sprinkle walnuts over. Serve w. toasts, crostini (yes, again) or crackers as desired.
I'm sure you'll get a great many really good suggestions here. ;)

I like Jean Georges potato ravioli. A quick, simple mushroom duxelle inside thinly sliced potato as the wrapper. Fry them up in a little oil and serve as is or with a simple tomato \thyme salsa.
If they are in season, I do squash blossoms. Stuff em with crap and then fry them in tempura batter
