Cornichon Goat Cheese Bites
Have you ever hear of Cowboy Sushi? Basically it is a piece of deli ham wrapped around cream cheese and a pickle. It is a very popular appetizer in my neck of the woods and my husband just loves it. After I had these amazing Maille Cornichons sitting in my refrigerator, it got me to thinking about how I could take the staple party appetizer the next level. That is how these gorgeous little Cornichon Goat Cheese Bites were born.
To get started I thinly sliced some quality salami and topped it with a whipped mixture of cream cheese, goat cheese and whole grain mustard. They are finished off with an adorable little cornichon and these easy but elegant appetizers are ready to go!
I was going for a low-carb finger food, but if that isn’t your concern, you could also place these on top of a crusty piece of bread or hearty cracker for something more substantial. Whatever you do, don’t skimp on the quality of ingredients. A simplistic recipe like this really let’s the high-quality ingredients shine, so stick to the good stuff. I went with Maille cornichons and mustard for a sure bet because I know they are always top notch!
- 8 oz. salami
