Appetizer Pie


Most of the delicious appetizer recipes that we have in my family came from Aunt Nellie (my great-great aunt; Mom Gordon's sister).  They seemed to be her specialty.  This is one of those recipes and certainly a family favorite for us and a perfect addition to Sunday Dinner!

Appetizer Pie (Aunt Nellie's recipe, given to Mom in 1981)

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1 package corned beef, shredded fine
2 tablespoons minced green onions
2 tablespoons finely chopped green pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Blend cheese and milk.  Stir in corned beef, onion, green pepper, and ground pepper.  Mix well.  Stir in sour cream.  Spoon into and 8-inch pie plate or 2 small, shallow baking dishes.  Sprinkle walnuts over top.  Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.  Serve with spreader over crackers (usually rye toast).  If using food processor, don't chop things too finely.
Pin It!
