These delicious Chorizo, Manchego and Olive Skewers will be the star of your Christmas or New Year’s Eve! You won’t believe how easy they are!
I really hope you all can follow this really in-depth and intermediate level recipe. Jokes, all you have to do is layer things on a stick. No cooking involved, whatsoever. The recipe that I’m referring to is for Chorizo, Manchego and Olive Skewers. Personally, I’m a huge fan of anything that’s served on a stick. Just pop it in all your mouth, chew and enjoy. Isn’t that really all we ever want out of an appetizer?
My thought process for this “recipe” was as follows: “I love cheese boards. Like, I REALLY love cheese boards.”
From there, I decided that instead of having a cheese plate where you have to build your own bite, why not create a little skewer that has everything on it that you want?
The version that I’m sharing with you today is Spanish themed, but you could totally do an Italian version, French, German or mix and match whatever meats and cheeses you like. For these Spanish skewers, I chose Spanish chorizo, manchego cheese and manzanilla olives with a drizzle of honey for sweetness and almonds for crunch.
The idea is that you take everything you want on your cheese platter and assemble it on a toothpick or skewer. Instead of honey, you could smear on some preserves, instead of almonds you could do pistachios or breadcrumbs… the possibilities are endless.
I left off amounts of the ingredients because that’s going to vary for every party and you all are very bright people who can figure out what’s best for you. Plus, this is really just a baseline idea and you all get crazy with your substitutions and whatnot.
You just need to make sure you include: salty, spicy, sweet, crunchy and creamy. You can’t go wrong with that equation!
Be sure to try them for Christmas or New Year’s Eve!
