If you had a mystery ingredient and it happened to Hazelnuts...
What would you make for an appetizer?

You have access to all ingredients you may need..

Good luck

Kimmie and Iza - I would be perfectly happy to eat gelato or cake for an appetizer. Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.

Love the hazelnuts. Love the ideas I see here. No ideas to share, though.

What can I say, I’m dyslexic? Pain killers are fogging my brain? Read too fast?


Desserts is always on my mind.

Cape Chef - love your recipe, can't wait to try it.

In France we cooked some hazelnut encrusted shrimp with a delicious white-wine sauce - yummy.

I guess I should have mentioned that too CC. Your recipe is most appealing to me. Thanks for sharing.

I've successfully used hazelnuts as a substitute for a regular flour panade. Here's an idea for a hazelnut forcemeat stuffed chicken breast.

1) Remove legs and wing sections from a chicken leaving both sections of breast on the chicken.

2) Prepare the forcemeat with meat from the thighs and finely ground hazelnuts.

3) Cut a pocket in the breastmeat and stuff the breast with the forcemeat.

4) Roast till done :) Serve with your choice of garnishes.
