Holiday gatherings are always a welcomed event, especially at the Wisconsin lake house. Such was the case on this last Memorial Day weekend. Along with tons of laughter, days on the lake with the children, and the joyful chatter over any meal make for warm memories.
Here are a couple of recipes picked up from family friends. Big THANKS to both Cathy and Aree for sharing these recipes.
Guacamole Dip (from Cathy and Mark)
4 normal avocados (or 6 small) halved and diced.
1 ripe medium tomato, seeded and diced.
1 small/medium white onion finely diced.
1 handful of cilantro finely chopped.
Salt and fresh lime juice to taste.
Mix all ingredients into a stainless steel or ceramic bowl. Serve chilled.
Party Sandwiches (Courtesy of Aree)
Fresh hamburger buns of your liking.
Thin slices of any ham you favor (we are particularly partial to Honey Baked Ham slices.
Swiss cheese slices
Finely minced onion
Poppy seeds to taste
Butter the inside of the hamburger buns. Add ham slices as desired. Spread diced onions, Worcestershire sauce, poppy seeds, and yellow mustard to taste.
Wrap each sandwich individually in foil. Freeze or refigerate for at least 15 minutes.
To serve, heat an oven to 350 degrees. Heat the wrapped sandwiches for 15 minutes if sandwiches are refrigerated or 30 minutes if frozen. (Be prepared, there was a near stampede when these were ready!) Enjoy!
