This is the first of three posts concerning easy peasy appetizers good for a party.
The Tony Awards air this Sunday evening, June 11! The Tony awards are always exciting and wonderful to watch. If you are a theatre geek you know what I mean.
Let’s face it, though. Any award show is better to view if there is a party surrounding it.
Since I’ve been involved in theatre since before we had dirt, I know a recipe or two that are guaranteed winners for an award show or cast party. Here is the first one.
I remember the party when I tasted this dip. I thought the idea of putting a reuben sandwich into a dip was pure genious. Who doesn’t enjoy a reuben?
My husband is a connoiseur of reuben sandwiches. He can afford to be one, too. The man is as slim as the day I married him. (That just isn’t fair, I don’t think.)
If you need a quick dip for a party, in particular a cast party and you want to make points with everyone, take this one.
Easy Peasy Appetizer
Hot Reuben Dip
1 8 oz. block of cream cheese
8 oz. of deli cut corned beef
1 cup swiss cheese
1/2 cup sauerkraut
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup Thousand Island dressing
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix up all the ingredients and spread into a glass dish which has been sprayed with cooking oil.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve with crackers or mini rye bread.
So there you have it–an easy peasy appetizer.
I hope you enjoy the Tony awards as much as I will. They always restore my faith in the performing arts, specifically theatre. Since I have students and friends who work on Broadway, it is super exciting when I see them on the Tonys. For me, the Oscar awards come and go (I understand they are very political) but I truly appreciate the Tony’s.
Break a leg!
