Spead each flour tortilla with 1/3 of the Boursin cheese or semisoft cheese with garlic and herbs. Add a layer of the large fresh basil leaves to cover cheese. Divide roasted red sweet pepper strips between the tortillas; arrange roasted red pepper strips over the basil leaves 1 to 2 inches apart. Top with meat slices.

BACON-WRAPPED BREAD STICKS
Courtesy of Elizabeth Guittar
Elizabeth advises using very good bacon and making several batches at a time as they go very quickly!
1 pound high-quality bacon strips
1 large package grissini-style bread sticks
1 box dark brown sugar
Cut bacon strips in half and lay them out on a cutting board. Break the bread sticks into 4-inch lengths.
Sprinkle the bacon with brown sugar so that the bacon is completely coated. Press the sugar onto the
bacon with your fingers. Continue to sprinkle sugar and press it on until no more sugar will adhere.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Set a rack over a foil-lined baking sheet. Roll the bacon strips, sugar
side in, around the bread sticks in a spiral fashion. Be sure to begin as close to the bread stick edge as
possible and roll very tightly. Place seam side down on the rack. Bake about 20 minutes, but watch
carefully so that the sugar doesn't burn in the last minutes of cooking. Remove them from the oven and
let rest for an hour on the rack to become firm. (To prepare ahead and freeze, bake the sticks half way,
freeze on a baking sheet, and store in the freezer in a plastic bag. To serve, bake the sticks for the
remaining 10 minutes.) Tiny cheesecakes and mushroom rollups
These are 2 of my fav, quick recipes.
Makes 24 Cheesecake Tarts
If you like quick cheesecake, try this:
Beat well, and then add to pre-baked tart
shells: 1 pkg (8 oz) philadelphia cream
300 ml Eagle brand condensed canned milk
1/4 cup lemon juice.
Spoon on a teaspoon of cherry pie filling
just before serving as a topping, if desired.
Chill 3 hours.

ingredients. Stir until cheese is melted.
Remove crust from bread slices.Roll each slice flat
with a rolling pin. Spread with cooled cheese
mixture. Roll up each slice. Brush lightly
with melted butter. Freeze solid. When ready
to serve, remove from freezer, cut each roll
into 3 pieces, and bake in a 400 oven
for 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
Serve hot. Makes 4 doz mini-rolls
or 16 egg-roll size rolls.
Prosciutto and Gruyere pinwheels made
these last night they are to die for.

4 teaspoon chopped fresh sage leaves
1 puff pastry sheet ( from one 17 1/4 oz.
frozen puff pastry sheets. Thawed
1 large egg beaten lightly
2 oz. thin sliced prosciutto
In a bowl combine gruyere, and sage.
On a lightly floured surface arrange pastry
sheet with short side facing you and cut in
half crosswise. Arrange one half of sheet
with long side facing you, and brush edge of
far side with some of the egg. Arrange half
of the proscuitto evenly on top of sheet,
avoiding the egg brushed edge and top with
half of the gruyere mixture. Starting with
side nearest you, roll pastry jelly roll
fashion into a log and wrap in wax paper,
make another with the other sheet of pastry.
Chill seam side down until firm at least 3
Preheat oven to 400 and lightly grease 2
large baking sheets.
Cut logs crosswise into 1/2 inch thick
pinwheels and arrange cut side down on baking
sheet one inch apart. Bake in batches till
golden 14 to 16 minutes. Transfer to a rack

Mini Sausage quiches:
1/2 cup butter softened
3 oz cream cheese softened
1 cup flour
1/2 lb bulk sausage
1 cup shredded swiss cheese
1 Tbls snipped fresh chives
1 cup half and half
1/4 teaspooon salt
dash cayenne pepper
Beat butter and cream cheese in medium bowl
till creamy Blend in flour refrigerate 1
hour. Roll into 24 1 inch balls and press
into mini muffin cups.
Preheat oven to 375. To prepare fillimg
crumble sausage into small skillet. Cook over
medium heat till browned stirring
occasionally. Drain off any drippings.
Sprinkle evenly into pastry shells in muffin
cups and sprinkle with swiss cheese and
chives. Whisk eggs half and half salt and
cayenne until blended pour over sausage in
pastry shells. bake 20 to 30 minutes or till
set. Remove from pans serve hot. These can be
frozen and reheated for about 10 minutes . I
am sure that you can make them in a bigger
pan like one of those individual pie pans if
you are looking for something more
substantial, I guess it would just have to do
with the measuring of the dough.
