Oyster Bobs and Kielbasa bites contributed by Dr. Husband
Dr. Husband's finger foods are easy as can be:
1 package Polska Kielbasa (beef or turkey)
Slice kielbasa into rounds, about 1 inch thick. Brown in skillet. Serve with toothpicks.
1 can fancy smoked oysters
1/4 pound swiss cheese, cubed
1 can pineapple chunks (optional)
On toothpicks, spear 1 oyster and one cube cheese. Add 1 chunk pineapple if desired.
And, the reader submission, Schmerke:
2 blocks of cream cheese, softened
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
Finely chopped pimento-stuffed green olives, to taste (about half a jar)
Grated or finely chopped onion to taste (a tablespoon?)
1 Tbsp mayonaise
milk or olive brine to help make it spreadable
Combine all ingredients, serve with crackers. (Usually Ritz)
You'll have to decide for yourself if the ingredients appeal to you, but here's what we thought. Plus a guest performer!
