HEDGEHOG COCKTAIL ONION & CHEESE PLATTER


Ingredients

  • Rosella White Cocktail Onions
  • Rosella Green Cocktail Onions
  • Rosella Red Cocktail Onions
  • Semi-hard Cheeses, cubed
  • 1–2 varieties of Cured Meats, rolled
  • 2–3 varieties of Crackers
  • 2 Green Stuffed Olives
  • Black Olive Slices
  • 1 Blueberry
  • 1 large Pineapple
  • 1 Lemon
  • Toothpicks

Method

  • Cut off the head of the pineapple, then slice off one-third lengthwise so it lies flat. Place it on a serving board.
  • Cut a lemon in the same way and place it in line with the pineapple, cut ends touching.
  • Gently secure a blueberry on a toothpick and insert the other end of the toothpick into the lemon for the hedgehog’s nose.
  • Gently secure 2 stuffed olives for the hedgehog’s eyes on 2 toothpicks and insert the other end of the toothpicks into the pineapple, just above the lemon.
  • Skewer the cocktail onions, cheese cubes and meats on toothpicks and pin them into the pineapple in neat rows.
  • Make pickled onion eyeballs: take an onion and cut both the head and tail end. Use the end of a small spoon to push the middle part of the onion out to have an empty space for the olive slices. Insert an olive slice into the onion.
  • Place crackers, onion eyeballs, and more cheese on the board to serve.
