You loved our corn bread hors d'oeuvres baked in mini-muffin tins, so we found a way to make them even more scrumptious. Mix in one of the sweet, savory, or spicy flavor combinations below, or create your own. You'll have appetizers to feed an army, or at least a few dozen of your closest friends.
Lettuce wraps, sugarcane skewers, and add-ins such as lemongrass make tasty bundles bursting with the flavors of Southeast Asia. Sugarcane adds a hint of sweetness and an authentic touch, but wooden skewers make a fine stand-in -- just soak them in water for 20 minutes before using.
Adding toasted whole-wheat breadcrumbs gives this dish a nice crunch that balances out the creaminess of the sauce. Rather than baking the shells with the crumbs on top (which can make them soggy), toast the breadcrumbs separately, and toss a handful over each serving right before you put it on the table.
