Alicia asks: What’s Your Favorite St Paddy’s Day Recipe and Centerpiece?
Well Alicia, “THE FLAMING CABBAGE” is impressive AND entertaining!
Clean a large cabbage, curling outer leaves back from the top. Carve out a hole in the top, about 6” deep. Place a sterno lamp in the cavity (so flame comes to the top of the cavity). Place the cabbage on a serving plate and surround with a lovely frill of parsley. Now, thrust wooden picks through cocktail sausages and stick randomly into the cabbage. Stick an olive onto the end of each to protect fingers as guests broil their own sausages! Now you have a fun AND decorative appetizer on St Patrick’s Day, compliments of Mr. and Mrs. Phil Hindley’s charming Oakland, CA home, and the Betty Crocker’s 1950s 1st Edition Picture Cookbook.
