Wine and Cheese Appetizers

wine and cheese appetizer recipes from @createdbydiane

I love appetizers,

is it just me or do you some times want to make a whole meal out of them?

I don’t think I’m alone.

The next time you are in need of a really great appetizer…

you HAVE to try this.

Was that too pushy? Sorry. I get a little pushy when I LOVE something.

These were loved by all and I’ve make many batches. They all went very quickly!

how to make wine and cheese appetizers

Since sausage is a little slippery I tossed them in a little flour so the batter would stick (when I didn’t the batter seemed to slide right off the pieces of sausage) then dip them into the batter and then into the fryer (or pot of hot oil) I think I need a deep fryer…really!

Wine and Cheese Appetizers
 
Ingredients
  • 2 links Farmer John Wine and Cheese Sausage
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • oil for frying
Instructions
  1. cut each sausage link into 10 pieces
  2. heat oil to 350 degrees ( I used a 2 quart saucepan and added three inches of oil
  3. while the oil is heating toss the sliced sausage pieces in flour
  4. when the oil reaches 350 degrees
  5. mix together the pancake mix and water (you'll want it to be a little on the thick side)
  6. dip each piece of sausage in batter and then fry them until they are golden brown and cooked through (about 2 minutes)
  7. don't overcrowd that pan fry a few at a time
  8. drain them on paper towel
  9. serve warm

 

 

Now onto the sauce…

oh how I love creamy cheesy sauces

and dipping is always a given when it comes to appetizers, right?

simply heat up some wine, brie and cream cheese with a little olive oil and you will have a sauce that is not only super-delicious on these sausage appetizers, it’s delicious on pasta too. I’ve even been known to slather some of it cold on crusty bread, yes it’s THAT good!

The combination of wine and brie together is irresistible.

Don’t you just love when two flavors are a perfect pair.

I was surprised even my fussy eater loved it. He kept grabbing handfuls of the sausage bites, that is one reason I kept having to make more. I can see in the next few years he will be eating me out of the house.  I served the sauce over pasta for him with a vegetable and he loved that too. Which means you don’t need to think this will be just for the adults.
