    "These moist wings-- marinated overnight in a soy sauce, mustard and brown sugar mixture-- are excellent party appetizers. At our house, they're a must for holiday gatherings."

    1/4 cup water 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

    Re: Appetizer Recipes

    This is a favourite of mine, super easy:

    Tex-Mex Dip

    1st layer: Spread one can refried beans (I use medium spice beans with added peppers)

    2nd layer: 3 medium ripe avacados mashed with 1 tablespoon lime juice

    3rd layer: spread 1/2 container of sour cream that has been mixed with 1/2 package taco seasoning mix (low salt mix is best)

    4th layer: enough shredded sharp cheddar cheese to cover (about 1.5 cups)

    5th layer: garnish with chopped green onion tops and diced fresh tomatoes.

    Looks best layered in a shallow glass container! (I use an 8" oval dish)
    Refrigerate for several hours to blend flavours - with plastic wrap or tight lid.

    Serve with tortilla chips (a mixture of yellow, blue and red chips are nice). :snow:

    Pepperoni Bread

    Pizza dough
    Sliced pepperoni
    Mozzarella Cheese
    Garlic powder or salt


    Roll pizza dough out to large oval shape. Sprinkle thin layer of mozz cheese all around leaving about 1 inch bare around the edges. Place layer of pepperoni, with the sides slighty over lapping each other. Sprinkle another thin layer of mozz cheese, sprinkle a little of garlic podwer/salt, add another layer of pepperoni and then more mozz cheese. Take one of the longer sides and start rolling towards the other side. Once you done you should have a long log. Press ends together and tuck under. Place on cookie sheet. Take a knife and puncture roll through top the bottom. This to allow air to escape from each layer of the roll. Spinkle a little cheese to top and bake for 25-30 mintes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then cut into slices and enjoy.
