Party for One

Now and then, life will catch you off guard. On some days it’ll be in the form of a defunct toilet, finding you’re out of toilet paper while sitting on said toilet, or flooding that bathroom with that same toilet.

On other days, shall we say less crappy days, it can take the form of unexpected house guests. Hungry house guests. It’s an occurrence that’s more common than you think.

Sometimes company will find themselves over at your place for a study session. Sometimes you’ll be recuperating after a long and arduous group project and everyone’s in need of some serious fuel.

Well if you’ve got 10 minutes to spare and the fixings for what would be a strange sandwich, yet tasty group appetizer, then why not try some Ham and Asiago Crisps?

Quick to make and more versatile than a Swiss army knife, these bite-sized snacks will fill you and your company up so everyone’s ready to head out the door.

What’s nice about these appetizers is that you can easily change the type of dip to suite whatever cold-cuts you’ve got on hand. For example, switch the ham for roast beef and pair with a French onion dip with a swiss cheese and horseradish garnish for some tasty experimentation.

Ham and Asiago Crisps

What’s In It:
-Half a French baguette
-1 package of Longo’s Artichoke & Asiago Dip
-100g of Rosemary Ham, thinly sliced
-Cucumber, julienned to garnish

Makes 24 crisps

1. Slice the baguette into inch-thick slices. Next, slice the ham lengthwise into half-inch long strips. Pile on meat onto the sliced bread.

2. Arrange the baguette slices on an oven rack and toast for 10 minutes @ 350°F

3. While the crisps are toasting, julienne the cucumber.

4. Remove crisps from the oven. Ham should be, well, crispy and the bread toasted.

5. Spoon about half a tsp of the artichoke and asiago dip onto the ham and top with the sliced cucumber.

6. Savour with some friends.
