About this recipe:
The cheese and pickle hedgehog is a retro party classic – for a fresh take why not try this tasty culinary creature?
Makes: 1 snake
1 cucumber – even better if it has a bend in it!
4 slices wafer thin Parma or Argyll ham or Bresaola beef
150g Lanark Blue or Roquefort cheese
1 (454g) jar Garner's Sweet Pickled Baby Onions, drained
1 red pepper
- Rinse and dry cucumber. Cut a thin slice off one side to create a flat base. Mark skin with a canelling knife if wished.
- Thread cocktail sticks with a Garner's Sweet Pickled Baby Onion and a nugget of cheese, weave on a sliver of ham and finish with another onion.
- Jab completed sticks into the cucumber in two wavy ‘tramlines’ up the centre from end to end.
- Use a small vegetable knife to shape a mouth at one end and push in a piece of red bell pepper shaped as a forked tongue to complete the snake.
You can add more features to your snake if you wish – what about two pickled onion eyes or use some star anise, let your imagination run wild!
