HAM STUFFED EGGS

6 eggs, boiled
1/2 cup ham or finely sliced proscuitto, minced
1/2 large Vidalia onion, minced
1 clove garlic, finely minced
2 tablespoons freshly minced parsley
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
pinch of cayenne pepper
paprika, for sprinkling (optional)
10 crushed saltines (for coating)
1 egg, beaten (for dipping)
olive oil spray

Simmer the eggs slowly for 20 minutes. Cool in cold water; peel and cut into halves, lengthwise.

Remove the yolks from the eggs and place in a medium bowl (leaving the white portions intact). To the yolks, add 1 tablespoon of melted butter, 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and a dash of cayenne pepper. Using a fork, mash into a smooth paste, and mix well. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired.

Spoon the mixture into 6 halves of the eggs and smooth it off with a butter knife until the filling is flat. Set aside.

Finely mince the onion and garlic. Combine with the chopped ham or proscuitto and fill the remaining six egg halves with the meat mixture.

Sandwich the eggs using 1 egg that has been filled with meat mixture and the other half which is filled with egg yolk together to make a whole egg. Keep them together by placing 2 toothpicks all the way through the two halves.

Roll the eggs in beaten egg, then in cracker crumbs. Place on a oiled baking sheet; spray the eggs with olive oil spray, rolling them over to coat the eggs well with the oil spray on all sides.

Cover loosely with aluminum foil and bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

POPCORN CHICKEN

1 egg
1 cup white flour
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
2 small boneless chicken breasts
3/4 cups vegetable oil (or any other frying oil)
2 paper towels

Mix flour and Cajun seasoning in small mixing bowl.

In separate bowl, beat egg.

Cut chicken breasts in small pieces ranging anywhere from about a 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inch in size, depending on how crispy you want (smaller=crispier).

Pour oil into a small skillet and place on a medium heat.

Dip pieces of chicken into egg, being sure they are fully covered.

Drop the chicken, piece by piece into the flour mixture, fully coating the chicken.

Test to be sure that the oil is ready by dropping a little glob of batter into the oil. If it sizzles and fries, it's ready! Now, slide the chicken into the skillet, easily and slowly to be sure the oil doesn't splatter all over you. Do this as quickly as possible. After about 3-4 minutes, flip the pieces over (pieces should be colored a light golden brown).

When chicken is finished, scoop it out draining as much oil as possible into the pan for more chicken and place it on a plate with the two paper towels lining the bottom.

This will catch and drain the excess oil so your chicken is super crunchy.

Dip in honey mustard sauce.

These are delicious...........

PARTY PITA WEDGES

2 regular sized pita pockets (6 inch)
2 large cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
16 slices pepperoni
4 round slices provolone cheese
1/3 cup medium chunky salsa

In a heatproof cup or bowl heat olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper in microwave on high for 40 seconds. Remove and add butter. Stir and set aside.

Using kitchen scissors, cut pita pockets into 4 pizza slice shaped wedges (slice in half, then slice each half again to make the wedges). Cut again along curved outer edge to separate into 2. Brush both sides of the pita wedges with warm olive oil mixture, coating well.

Place wedges crust side down on a baking sheet. Spread 1 teaspoon of salsa to top each wedge. Cut provolone slices into 4 wedge shapes and place one on top of each. Top with a slice of pepperoni, if desired. Drizzle with any remaining olive oil and sprinkle lightly with coarse sea salt.

Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is bubbly. Serve while still warm.

Makes 16 wedges.

LITTLE SAUSAGE PARTY BREADS

1 pkg Jimmy Dean sausage( any flavor)
1 pound hamburger
1 small box Velveeta cheese
1 loaf party bread ( sourdough, rye, or pumpernickel)

Fry your sausage&hamburger till its done then drain. Then add it back to the fry pan and add your veleveeta cheese, a little at a time, just kepp mixing it until it all comes together. This usually takes about 15-20 minutes. Then spread your little party breads out on a cookie sheet, spoon a little bit of the sausage/hamburger/cheese mixture onto each one, and then you want to bake these under the broiler just until they reach a light brown color.
