EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If these appetizers broil too quickly, they will still be cold in the center; if they broil too slowly, the filling melts rather than puffs and the appetizers don’t brown. Adjust the broiler rack as needed to get the optimum results.

Prepared from start to finish, these appetizers require only a short freezing time; however, they can be assembled up to one month ahead and stored in the freezer. Be sure to broil them while they are frozen.

Garnish the serving platter with fresh herbs and/or red bell pepper cutouts.
