TJ’s Appetizer Trio

Posted by Caveman Cooking on December 4, 2009

Just a few ideas that will make your next soiree appear to be a high-priced affair … for only about $6 a head! Best of all, you can get all the ingredients with just one stop at Trader Joe’s


1 Baked Brie with Peach Sauce
1 Cave’s Quick Cocktail Sauce
1 Bag of frozen TJ’s Jumbo Shrimp
1 Bag of TJ’s Whole Cashews (I prefer the reduced salt option)
1 Bottle of Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne


Place chilled Champagne on ice. Set aside.
Prepare Cocktail Sauce. Chill.

Prepare Baked Brie. Place in oven.

Thaw Shrimp using the “Quick Thaw” method described on the package. Place ice on large serving dish with raised edges. When thawing process is complete, place bowl of Cocktail Sauce in center of serving dish, then arrange Shrimp on the ice.

When fully cooked remove Brie from oven and let stand 5 minutes while preparing tray of crackers and/or bread.
Place Cashews in bowl, and serve all appetizers to your guests, while toasting them with chilled imported Champagne. Your TJ’s Appetizer Trio will be the hit of the party and will cost you around $6 per person … but, your company will think you went “all out”.
