    Sponge Bobs

    [​IMG]

    The "Sponge Bobs" are the bottom 4, its hard to tell because the anchovy cooks into the meat, however you can taste just enough of the anchovy, a true anchovy lover such as myself will pick up on the flavor.
    My family hates anchovies and they had no clue!


    Ingredients:

    • 1 Chicken breast
    • 8 slices of bacon
    • 8 Chunks of pineapple
    • 8 anchovy fillets
    • Sea Salt
    Preparation:
     
    1. Slice chicken into 1/8" thick strips.
    2. Place pineapple chunk at bottom
    3. Sprinkle some sea salt on top of chicken and pineapple
    4. place anchovy fillet above pineapple
    5. Roll up chicken.
    6. Wrap in Bacon and toothpick in place.
    * Tip- Blot chicken and pineapple before rolling.

        Squib,I like the idea of the anchovies,and the Dates too[​IMG]. I will be saving these to try next time Trish decides to let me smoke something[​IMG].

    I'm the only one that likes the little fishys,so mabe I'll have a snack all to myself[​IMG].

        Now, as for the Chicken,it looks as if you pounded the breast to an even thickness(like in a scallopini) then rolled them,right[​IMG]  And the Pineapple, was it fresh or canned[​IMG]  I will do these on my next smoke,Kudos for some interesting appitizers[​IMG]  I belive I will be getting my little NBRedRiver back soon and it will be my short smoke - appetizer unit.

       I love the Date thingy(Roaches)and plan to making them for myself,along with the SpongeBobs-yummo[​IMG].

       Have a good weekend and ...
     
  4. I'm lost for words. I'm richer for the recipes. Squib, thanks so much. You help me totally impress all

    the folks who eat my food. I want you to know I give credit to the recipe owner at all times. I'm going

    to make roaches for my wife next time and blow her taste buds out of the universe, she loves dates.

    you rock amigo... [​IMG]

    Chicken was sliced and the pineapple was canned, not sure if fresh would be better but I always have some canned around.
    I am going to do a batch with candied pecans hopefully soon.
    • 1 egg white
    • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1 dash vanilla extract
    • 4 cups pecans

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Spray the wax paper with cooking spray.
    2. Beat egg white until stiff. Add brown sugar and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Mix in pecans and stir until coated. Pour the nuts onto the prepared cookie sheet.
    3. Bake until browned, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

    Try a sweet glaze on the roaches.or use my smoked blackberry dipping sauce, its awesome.

    Those look Great! I have had my students do a variation on the Roaches in Hors d'oeuvre classes...The Dates were stuffed with a cube of Dry Cured Chorizo and Pepper Jack, before being wrapped in Bacon and Baked...Smoking the little buggers with the addition of Chicken would have made them Totally Awesome!...JJ

    If I made a list of every Great Recipe I have seen from the SMF Crew... and Started making them One a Day...I think my GRANDKIDS would be still trying to finish the List!!!!!
