The dressing of this snack is specific - based on sherry. Add mayonnaise, lemon juice, spices and finely chopped parsley.

Puffed snacks in the spotlight
Ham and champignons on the holiday table should definitely be because you can’t do without meat dishes, and everyone loves mushrooms. And to diversify the taste of snacks are familiar and inexpensive ingredients:
- Chicken eggs
- Green onions
- Hard cheese
We use favorite mayonnaise as a lubricant for the layers.
Since we have a puff snack, then let the dishes be transparent - it's nice to see all the layers in the salad bowl, look forward to them and savor them in advance.
Vegetables for this appetizer are boiled, finely chopped or grated. Champignons are best bought marinated or in their own juice - this is all to the taste of the housewife.
Arrange the layers as you see fit; a bright layer of potatoes is empty to cover the ham, then the carrots will add a little brightness.Again, a bright layer of champignons, grated separately on a coarse grater whites and yolks. The main thing in these snacks - improvisation and simplicity. Cheese can be the final layer on a snack or it can also be put inside.
One more snack from Austria
Canned fish do not cease to occupy the main place in our refrigerators. Very quickly they can be turned into a delicious light soup, added to the second dish. So, if you need to urgently and cheaply come up with a snack on the New Year's table - stock up on a few jars of fish. You will also need for this snack:

Since we are trying to make all the snacks compact and beautiful, then prepare some beautiful transparent vessels. Puff snacks are the most delicious, it is worth each guest to put their transparent ice-cream bowl.
Layers can be made in each one in different ways, the taste will remain one, and such vessels for festive snacks look very beautiful.
Boil you need only carrots and chicken eggs, preparing a snack quickly. Just cook all the ingredients and lay them in layers, smearing with mayonnaise.
Red fish is an excellent snack
Thinly sliced red fish fillet can be beautifully rolled into small rolls and filled with a light salad. If there are skewers - stick into each roll, so it is more convenient to take a snack from the plate.
You can make salmon or trout in fifteen minutes. To do this, you need fresh cucumbers and soft cream cheese - it turns out beautiful, very tasty and fast.
Cut the red fish into thin narrow slices - you only need 200 g of fish.
Peel the cucumbers and cut them into thin slices - you need 2 cucumbers.
We coat the slice of fish with cream cheese, put a slice of cucumber on it and roll it up into a roll. Now it remains to fasten it with a skewer and put it on a plate. And so that the appetizer would look especially festive - cut thin slices from the remaining cucumber and place them like a fan on top of the fish. You can also decorate with a sprig of parsley or dill.
Favorite profiteroles with filling
For some reason, we use little profiteroles for salty snacks, usually they are filled with sweet custard or whipped cream.
Every hostess can bake profiteroles from choux pastry.You can prepare them in advance and simply store until the arrival of guests. The shape of profiteroles for salty snacks can be round or elongated - here the hostess can dream up.
You will need to test
- 100 g butter or margarine,
- 4 chicken eggs
- 200 g flour
- A pinch of salt
Pour water into a saucepan and bring to a boil, dissolve the oil in it. Now add flour and mix thoroughly. Now you need to drive eggs into the dough one at a time, each time you have to mix very well, otherwise “empty” profit rollers will not work. Spread the dough on a baking sheet using a spoon or pastry syringe. During baking, it is strictly forbidden to open the door of the oven, profit-making machines can “settle” due to a sudden change in temperature.
Now it’s worth making two or three variants of profiterole stuffing
- With chicken liver, green onions and carrots
- With red fish
- With chicken and cheese
The first filling is familiar to all who love chicken liver. Cut it into small pieces, rub the carrots on a coarse grater, add the onions, and fry everything well in a frying pan. When the liver is ready - using a blender, bring it to a state of soft pate, add butter.
Red fish stuffing is collected from finely chopped pieces of salmon or trout, soft Almette cheese or sour cream and finely chopped green onions are added. You can add a little red caviar - it tastes better!
The filling is tender with chicken meat, such profiteroles will be most liked by children. Boil chicken breast, finely chop, add finely grated hard cheese and a bit of mayonnaise.
Now cut off the caps from the profiteroles and fill the void with the filling. To make it easy for guests to understand the proposed snacks, decorate them in different ways.
Snack cakes - beautiful and tasty
Since we used choux pastry for making snacks, then you should pay attention to pita bread - the same stuffing as for profiteroles can be used here. But there are unusual tastes, for example, a completely incredible combination of salmon and ham.
This filling is so unusual that guests will not believe the combination of tastes. Ham and fish finely chopped, mix and add melted soft cheese. Spread the pita bread with fine scrapped filling and sprinkle with finely chopped greens.
A little trick: for a snack to look beautiful and festive, put ready-made long rolls of pita for ten to fifteen minutes into the freezer.After this cooling, the rolls are easily cut into pieces.
