Antipasto Skewers

Marinated mushrooms, zesty Havarti cheese, and cocktail rye (or bread of your choice), skewered on frilly toothpicks are a great, simple appetizer with little work and almost no clean up! You can marinate fresh mushrooms yourself, or dress them up right out of the jar.

Original recipe makes 24 skewers


10 ounces Havarti cheese, cubed
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 (6 ounce) jar mushroom caps, drained
6 slices cocktail rye bread, quartered
