I'm throwing a dinner party tonight and I need some recipe ideas?

What can I do to make ramen noodles, Ritz crackers, and Cheez Whiz into a fancy appetizer?

The main course will be prime rib with a watercress and leek salad and dessert will be soufflé.

    This sounds like something the Chopped contestents might find in their appetizer course baskets! here are some ideas:

    Appetizer 1: Saute the ramen noodles in olive oil and add chopped onion, garlic, and thyme. Stir in Cheese Whiz and pipe onto Ritz crackers.

    Appetizer 2: Cook the ramen noodles and chill. Crush the Ritz Crackers and blend into Cheez Whix. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Scoop out and roll into balls. Roll balls into chopped parsley. Season noodles with soy sauce, chili sauce, garlic, and or hoison sauce. Swirl noodles and place on japanese soup spoon. Top with a cheez ball.

    Appetizer 3: Melt cheez and stir in cooked ramen noodles. Add sour cream and mustard. Pour into ramekins and top with ground crackers. Drizzle with butter and bake until golden and heated thru.

    Appetizer 4: Cook noodles as directed and chop. Saute cooked noodles with minced onion and brown sugar until golden. Add a pinch of salt and some fresh ground pepper. Chop mixture and serve on top of crackers with Cheez Whiz

    I have a question, though, how come you're having such a low-budget appetizer with such a high budget entree and dessert?????

    Souffle, roast beef, ritz crackers, cheeze whiz? What you really need is somebody to transport you back from the 1970's, because an appetizer is the least of your worries.

    This is actually a BS question anyway cause if you did plan to make that prime rib for a dinner "party" you wouldn't wait until a couple hours before to look in your cupboards for an lame appetizer.

    Why don't you just leave the nurse's computer alone and get back to your room?

    Well a curry of some sort is always good for the men - but do a thai one instead. Make the starter if you are having one a cold one that can be plated up before your guests arrive - that gives you more time to socialise when they do. If you dont want to cook one and want to buy one - go and look in any supermarket. They do packs in the freezer section of samosas and spring rolls (bite size ones) - buy a selection allowing three or four pieces per person. Or chop a load of vegetables and have three of four dips and put out some doritos as they are great with dips. For the main course make a Thai chicken curry. Chicken pieces. Two cans of coconut milk Two cartons of coconut cream A small jar of red, yellow or green thai curry paste A yellow and green pepper A sprig of lemongrass. Fry off the chicken until lightly browned - add all the other ingredients and gently simmer for an hour. This gives time for all the spices in the paste to get into the meat and sauce. Serve with a big bowl of rice and a big bowl of salad. For pud do a selection of ice creams with strawberries. Cut the strawberries in half, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and then drizzle some honey over the whole lot. Cover and set aside. The wetness of the strawberries melts the sugar and absorbs the honey. Sometimes I put a spoonful or two of sherry over them. Serve with cream or creme fraiche. Dont put the strawbs in the fridge though as they get too cold. It really is simple is best. The starters are easy, the main course is basically cooking itself and the pud is already prepared. You can socialise along with everyone else. Happy eating!
