Scrounging around the last week for a quick appetizer recipe, I discovered I really don't DO appetizers.
I did a speedy online search and found a goody over at Kraft Recipes.
This is what I brought to the neighborhood (aka Family) New Year's Eve Party:
I felt I must share the recipe in the event any of you are ever in a bind.
I've put my changes in parenthesis.
Barbecue Bacon Party Spread
2 packages cram cheese, softened
cup Barbecue Sauce (Hunt's Honey Hickory Barbecue Sauce)
pkg. (2.52 oz.) Fully Cooked Bacon, chopped (precooked, crumbled bacon)
small tomato, chopped ( I omitted and added 1/2 cup chopped red pepper instead)
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
green onions, sliced (I don't like onions, so I omitted)
1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
SPREAD cream cheese onto platter.
DRIZZLE with barbecue sauce.
TOP with remaining ingredients.
SERVE with your favorite crackers.
