Do you feel like just snacking? Or, do you have a few friends coming over and you just want to put on something casually to munch on?
Fun to make, easy to make and of course delicious!
I made this on a game’s night and it was a total success.
Lay out some small plates, a set of tongs and let them help themselves.
Note: Dont forget I double or triple my recipes
because I feed an army!
