Snacks Inspired by 84th Oscar Nominees: Brad Pitta, Chicken Streeps, Oldman Fashioned

Having an Oscar party? Still deciding what goes on the menu? Here's a few fun and silly appetizers!

People often pay homage to Oscar-nominated movies with thematic food inspired by the hits, but I prefer to pay homage to this year's nominees that included two of my favorite stars, Meryl Streep and Gary Oldman, along with Hollywood heavyweights like Brad Pitt and George Clooney.

Happy Partying with the Stars!

Meryl Chicken Streeps

Ingredients: 
  • 1 large boneless chicken breast, cut into strips.
  • 1 cup of Breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  •  Salt and pepper to taste
Preparation: See Breaded Pork Cutlet
Serve with Ketchup or Barbeque sauce.




Clooney Hawaii Toasties
Ingredients:
  • 1 can of pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup of ham, diced
  • 1/2 cup of Tomato sauce
  • 2 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 slices of white bread, toasted 
Preparation: Use Toast as pizza base, prepare toppings (see Homemade Pizza), broil in oven for 8 -10 minutes or until cheese melts and edges of the toasts turn brown. Cool for a few minutes and cut toast into bite size bits.


Brad Pitta Mini Dogs
 Ingredients:
  • Pita bread, squared
  • Lettuce, finely sliced
  • 1 can of mini hot dog sausages
  • Cheddar Cheese, thinnly sliced
Preparation: Wrap mini sausages, lettuce and cheese inside pita bread. Secure wraps with toothpicks.Broil in oven for about 5 minutes.






Gary OLDman Fashioned 
(Husband's recipe)
 Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup of Whiskey
  • 1/4 cup of Orange Juice
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • a few drops Lemon juice
  • Ices 
Preparation: Add whiskey over ice to taste, then add half as much OJ followed by one tsp of sugar then a quick squeeze of lemon. Stir. Viola!



Husband Says: "The Oldman Fashion drink is my idea, so place all blame on me if it doesn't turn out well, but its the name that counts! It ain't bad, I"ll say that. Any typos in this edition of Husband Says are a direct result of that drink. The Meryl Chicken Streeps are great with BBQ sauce and seriously, how can you not laugh at Brad Pitta Mini Dogs? I mean seriously. These are all great for a sure fire chuckle. *Chuckles*"
