Cheese Sambusa Photos
This is a Somali recipe. I learned it by watching my Somali friends around Ramadan and I was able to make my own variation. They are really good and I can't stop eating them. They are served during Ramadan, Weddings, Parties, or just because. A seasoned ground beef mixture is wrapped in a cone shaped package and deep fried. For a variation you can substitute shredded beef for ground beef.
Three cheeses are stuffed in a buttered pastry wrapper with cilantro and garlic for a savory, Middle Eastern-inspired snack.
Beef and potatoes are the main ingredients folded inside these wonderful deep fried samosas. Chicken livers may be substituted for beef, if you choose. My friend from Bangladesh gave me this savory, spicy recipe. You just can't buy better in the shops.
Golden puffed pastries are filled with a feta cheese mixture. These can be made ahead, and popped into the oven after your guests arrive.
Snap, crackle and pop cereal goes savory here in this hot, cracker-like appetizer made with cheddar, spices and more.
If you like jalapeno poppers, you will love these fried wontons stuffed with cheese and jalapeno!
Easy, yummy appetizer. Great for unexpected guests during the holidays. Serve with crackers and assorted apple slices.
This is a recipe from my ninety three year old grandmother from Switzerland. She is still making these cheesy bite sized puff pastry appetizers that can be served at room temperature or hot out of the oven. Once you have had one, good luck stopping.
Tasty, hot appetizers that take little time to prepare but will impress your guests!
