Whether it’s for a loaf of their French bread (the best in Dallas!) or one of their delicious grab-and-go sandwiches, Empire Baking Company in Inwood Village is one of my frequent stops in Dallas. So I am thrilled that they are sharing some stress-free, easy hor d’oeuvre recipes just in time for the holidays! For more gourmet gift ideas, be sure to check out our Gourmet Gift Guide here.
These appetizers are great to take along to a party or for last-minute get-togethers with friends (the best kind!).
Pimento Cheese Crustini
- Empire Baking Company Pimento Cheese (at least two containers – or use your own recipe!)
- 1 Load of Empire Baking Company Pain au Levain Bread (sliced)
- Stonewall Kitchen Maple Onion Bacon Jam (in-store or find it here or here)
- Scallions, chopped (green and white parts)
Grill or broil bread until toasted. While warm, spread a layer of pimento cheese on top of the bread slices. Put a small amount of Maple Onion Bacon Jam on top and spread. Top with scallions.
Artichoke Parmasean Dip
- Empire Baking Company Artichoke Dip (at least two containers)
- Shredded Parmasean Cheese
- Empire Baking Company Mockingbird Crisps
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, place dip in an oven proof dish. Top with shredded cheese. Bake 20-30 minutes or until bubbly.
Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with BLT Dip
- Empire Baking Company BLT Dip
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Chives, Chopped
Using a small serrated knife, thinly slice a piece off the bottom of the tomato so it sits flats. Cut the top 1/4 of the tomato. Using a grapefruit spoon or a paring knife, remove most of the tomato pulp. Stuff the tomato with the dip using a small spoon or piping bag. Top with chives.
