Cucumber Dill Toasties from www.tasteandtellblog.com

What do you do when you are bringing an appetizer to a group of food bloggers?  As much as I love trying new recipes, I have to admit that it’s a little nerve wracking to try something new when you are around a group of food bloggers.  So of course, you dig into you family favorites and decide on something that you know will be a crowd pleaser!

This is a recipe that my family has been making for years.  For wedding receptions, for baby showers – and it’s even a family favorite when we just get together as a family.  And the plate is always cleared.  They are super easy and fast to make, and they are fairly inexpensive as well.

I have to say – the majority of the time that we make these, we use dried dill.  But I had some fresh dill on hand for another recipe I was making, so I used the fresh.  I didn’t think it would make a huge difference either way, but I really did love the fresh dill.  It added so much, that I think that I’ll stick with fresh dill from now on!

Next time you are looking for a crowd-pleasing appetizer, try these Cucumber Dill Toasties!

    I always thought i was iffy on dill until I tried it fresh…SO GOOD. And I totally know what you mean about cooking for other bloggers. It’s more stressful than cooking for almost anyone else!

  14. So cute! And I love fresh dill too! I never get to use it as much as I would like.

    I would definitely be intimidated cooking for a bunch of food bloggers, but it looks like you find the perfect crowd pleaser! :)

  19. Jennifer | Mother Thyme says:

    Love this! We entertain all the time so I am always looking for new appetizers to make when we have people over so I don’t keep serving the same old same old. Can’t wait until our next gathering to make these. :)

  20. Dill must be the flavor of the season! I have seen so many recipes with it lately and since I love the flavor of dill, I am as happy as can be.

  21. This looks easy and requires few ingredients. If I make this, I would probably be selfish and eat it all. Thanks for sharing!

    Love your site. We made something similar to your Cucumber Dill Toasties a couple years ago in a cooking class. Very tasty.

    I like when you mentioned “what do you cook for a bunch of Foodies?” I consider myself a Divine Foodie; my wife says Food Snob. Everyone defers to me for places to eat and things to cook. Three weeks ago, I took a Chef out to lunch. I was so nervous about picking a good place. It all turned out.

    Thanks for sharing your experiences and recipes with us. I love food writing, http://www.hometownslop.blogspot.com.
