Though I am not a Cubs fan, I am a fan of Cubs fans. One in particular happens to be my favorite person - The Hubster! As we watched the possibility of Back to the Future's prediction in progress, we were invited to two of my other Cubs fan-favorites, Cody and her husband Joe. My job was to take a sweet and a savory. I did not don the Cubs gear; however, in support, I did fix up some Cubs eats! I did cupcakes decorated with a Cubs logo, as you can see from the picture above, and also dressed up some antipasto apps to look like baseballs! That is the recipe I provided you below......throw them together for your next sports party!
BASEBALL ANTIPASTO APPS
1 pkg 'everything' bagel thins, sandwich-size
1/2 pound hard salami, sliced at a 2 or 3
1 pkg sliced smoked provolone cheese
1 jar roasted red peppers, keep the liquid
2 tbs mayonnaise
2 tbs grated Parmesan cheese
Toast the 'everything' bagel thins until just crisp. Mix the liquid from the jar of peppers, the mayonnaise, and the Parmesan cheese in the jar, close and shake well. Spread very thinly and evenly on toasted bagel thins. Place a slice of salami on top of the dressed bagel thins, and then layer a slice of provolone cheese. Cut each roasted red pepper into thin slices to make the baseball 'laces', and layer according to the picture above.
NOTES: I use Boar's Head salami because it has no nitrates or MSG, and is minimally processed. Also, as the low-carb girl, I simply eat this without the bagel thin and it is DELICIOUS!
