Tasty Thursday – Toothpick Yummys


I love BBQs and I really enjoy the ones where everyone brings something.

Drew and I recently went to a house warming BBQ and it was a BYOA (bring your own appy). We were going to be out most the day prior to the BBQ and out of town. So I visited Pintrest to see what peaked my interest… I was sadly disappointed. As I was putting some toothpicks in an avocado pit I had an idea! Toothpick appies, simple and delicious.

I wanted something simple, yet delicious.

Ahhh! Toothpicks.

Here is the tasty appetizer that was the lucky winner!

What you will need:

  • a delicious meat – I used Calabrese
  • cheese – as long as it doesn’t crumble, you’re good
  • Olives
  • Asparagus
  • Toothpicks

There are many, many different variations of this you could do. Let your imagination flow!



Helpful Tips:

  • Cut up the asparagus and to prevent it from splitting less, throw it in the microwave for a couple seconds.
