So while I look ahead and dream big of my 30th in New York, it's time to stop and celebrate the big 3-0 for Pete tonight!
Michelle and Pete are putting on a par-tay at their place and I've just woken up to some glorious weather.
Michelle is the hostess with the mostess and you're always guaranteed of a fabulous spread when you're in her company. She's got the catering all sorted for tonight but I can't not pitch in on a night like this so offered to do some late night snacks to help soak up the booze.
I LOVE when a plate of goodies comes out towards the end of the night - never has something tasted so good! It's like getting a yiros on the way home, but this time, it's brought to you!
So I turned my memory back to their engagement party and remembered the Red Hots that were a late night winner.
A kind of grown up 'little boy'. Perfect for a bloke's 30th birthday!
Basil and feta red-hots
12 mini ready-to-bake bread rolls
12 mini frankfurts
1/4 cup (70g) pizza sauce
1/2 cup small basil leaves
1/4 cup drained marinated feta
- Place the bread rolls on baking trays and bake according to packet instructions or until light golden.
- Leave the bread rolls to cool slightly.
- Cook the frankfurts in a large saucepan of simmering water for about 5 minutes or until heated through, then remove from the pan and drain.
- Cut slits into the top of each bread roll and brush the insides with pizza sauce. Place a frankfurt in each roll, top with basil leaves and crumble over feta.
