My top 3 were the pastrami bites, pinon and mozzerella, and relleno. It was hard, I knocked the relleno out of the running because I just think it's not quite an appetizer, too big.

It was really a toss up between the other two. I went with the ruben bites because thats what I wanted to eat at the moment.

Great.....the warranty on my monitor does not cover saliva, and the wife is pretty pissed about all the tounge streaks tongue.gif. #13 all the way points.gifPDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

I have to defend number 13. That is an appetizer. Just because whoever smoked it took a close up picture of it, on a small plate, does not mean its very big. Look at the size of the lime slices. I'm pretty sure those are two bites and theyre gone... And last time i was at any major restaurant, or even looked at some of the appetizers that i make, most are at least two bites! Who here eats mozzarella sticks in one bite?? BTW>.. I did not cook these, and i do have an item in this throwdown, and yes i voted for my own. but if i had two votes... those stuffed chilis would have been it!!! Congratulations whoever made them!! They look unbelievably delicious!!! PDT_Armataz_01_40.gif
There have been several comments about this dish, and i feel someone should step up and at least represent the other side. that person is me.

Aptz or not?

First I have an entry. Secondly I would like to try and remove any doubt weather the Rellenos are a appy or not.

Look closely at the finely composed and balanced photo. These are not large papblanos as we often associate meal size rellenos with. I do not know the variety of pepper used but they are a smaller pepper of some sort. Also my wife and I eat out at finer resturants on a regular basis. This dish is not out of line with aptz I have seen and enjoyed based soley on its size. Even at chain establishments the chicken strip appys are at least this size. I think we tend to confuse a aptz. with Hor de Vorse if I spelled that correctly, and personally believe there is a subtle difference between the two. To some extent they may be enterchangable but this dish is outstanding as a aptz.

I would love to have this in front of me and look forward to the recipe. I hope the person who made these will post it when all is said and done.
Lets move on with the show and have a good time.

Let me give you a hand with that hors d'oeuvres

Shooter... congrats on your 1000th post.

I also have an entry.... I also agree number 13 is an appetizer and it is well done.

I do caterings every weekend... we often serve smoked mini rellenos as the first course. (hors d'oeuvres translates to "apart from the main") Substantial enough to stand on its own, but leaves room for the main. Actually it allows us to serve something cheaper to fill you so we can serve less of the expensive main course.
