Where'd You Get That App?

Finger Food...why do they call it finger food? No, no I understand "why" they call it finger food - because you eat it with your "fingers" - but you don't call soup - "spoon food"; you don't call salad - "fork food".   Oh well, let's just call them appetizers. Small little bite size food wonders.  Other courses are probably jealous of appetizers - appetizers are THE party food.

Today's feature recipe at Table 4 Five:

Spicy Seafood Shell Appetizers (

1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/3 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
10 drops hot pepper sauce
1 (4 oz) can small shrimp drained
1 (6 oz) can crabmeat, drained and flaked
2 (2.1 oz) package mini phyllo tart shells

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Lightly grease a medium baking sheet.

In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, Swiss cheese, onion, Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce.  Gently stir in shrimp and crabmeat.

Form phyllo dough into shells.  Fill shells with the mixture.

Arrange stuffed shells on baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven 7 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Sprinkle with paprika before serving.
