    Pimento-stuffed or

    Microwavable liquid
    measuring cup
    Rubber scrapper
    Waxed paper
    Small bowl
    Measuring spoons
    Can opener
    Cutting board
    Sharp knife
    Microwavable dinner
    12 round toothpicks


    1. Spoon 1/3 cup grape jelly into liquid measuring cup until it reaches the
    1/3 cup line, leveling out with the rubber scrapper.
    2. Add 1/3 cup ketchup into the measuring cup until the mixture reaches
    the 2/3 cup line.
    3. Cover with waxed paper, curled side down, and microwave on high
    (100%) 1 minute. Stir. Re-cover and microwave 1 to 1 1/2 minutes
    longer or until the jelly is almost melted. Stir. Save this sauce.
    4. Put 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese and 1/ 4 teaspoon paprika
    in the small bowl.
    5. Put the strainer in the sink and put 1 can (16 ounces) small, whole
    potatoes in strainer to drain.
    6. Choose the 6 largest potatoes and cut them in half.
    7. Roll potato halves in the chees mixture and pput with flat sides down
    in a circle on the dinner plate.
    8. On each of the 12 round toothpicks, thread 1 cube (1/2 inch) longhorn
    cheese, 1 tiny smoked sausage or hot dog and 1 small pimento-stuffed
    or ripe olive or canned pineapple chunk.
    9. Poke the cheese end of the toothpick into each potato so the toothpick

    cheese starts to melt and sausages are hot. Let stand uncovered
    1 minute.

    Hints: Longhorn cheese melts more slowly than other cheeses so it keeps
    its shape better.
