I don’t know about you, but one of my biggest fears is hosting parties.
It’s right up there with bear attacks, tornadoes and zombies. Something about having a bunch of people over and making them all happy and stuff with yummy food and drinks makes my hands clammy and my face freeze in horror (a lot like that face in “The Scream” painting. Picture it… there you go).
It’s not a pretty sight – especially if the guests have already arrived. Yep. Welcome to my home, as I shriek in terror. This is why I only have people over for Halloween.
All jokes aside, I do get a bit of anxiety when I’m responsible for preparing tasty food for more than just me, my husband and my cat. So it comes in handy to have a few easy-peasy appetizer recipes in mind for entertaining guests, like this Roasted Grape, Chevre & Honey Flatbread
It sounds fancy and it tastes fancy, but it’s super simple and crowd-pleasing. So, fellow party-phobes, you can remove that look of fear off your face and add this recipe to your arsenal of go-to foods for your next get-together.
Here’s how to make it:
First, toss some red grapes in olive oil, salt and pepper. Don’t be weirded out by this combination – it turns into all things delicious.
Roast the grapes for a few minutes until they shrivel up a bit and your kitchen starts to smell AMAZING.
Pre-bake a thin pizza crust (Pillsbury’s refrigerated pizza crust is a yummy time-saver), top it with the grapes, some rosemary and crumbled chevre (a.k.a. goat, bahhhhh…) cheese, and bake until all nice and golden brown.
Drizzle on some honey…
Slice, and serve. Add a few drinks, a bag o’ chips and you’ve got yourself one awesome party. See? It’s not that hard after all. I can cross this fear off my list.
