(Naomi's Parmesan Rounds)
This was meant to be part of our Noche Buena but I ran out of snacks to feed the hungry mouths so I had to serve this earlier than planned. One of my favorites and hey it's not too late to prepare for New Year's Eve. Two thumbs up from me. My boss' wife shared this recipe to me a couple of years ago.
1 bag of sliced brown breadbutter
1 (250) package of cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup buttter melted
200 gms of cooked shrimps (or crabmeat)finely chopped
1/4 cup of mayonnaise6 green onions, finely chopped
Freshly grated parmesan cheese
Using a 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch round cutter (or a jigger), cut circles from each slice of bread, butter one side of each circle. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil until lightly toated under a preheated broiler. Turn the broil unbuttered side. Transfer to rack and cool.
Combine cream cheese, butter, shrimp meat (or crabmeat), mayonnaise and green onions in a large bowl. Spread about one heaping teaspoon of mixture over buttered side of bread. Dip into parmesan Cheese.Arrange rounds on baking sheet and broil until bubbly and golden. Makes about 60 rounds.
Tip: You can freeze these too if you prepared a lot.
To freeze, place on cookie sheet and place in freezer until firm. Transfer to freezer bag or contaner and broil when needed.
This is a hit and I guarantee that your visitors will remember you forever.
