TASTY BITES TO RING IN 2021

Homemade treats will be sure to please as we gladly bid adieu to 2020

- ATCO BLUE FLAME KITCHEN

It's probably not an exaggerati­on to say that most of us are more than ready to say so long to 2020. Following are some tasty appetizers to fill your belly as you count down to 2021.

Flavoured with ginger, garlic and a dash of hot sauce, our Asian meatballs are an easy and flavourful make-ahead recipe that you can reheat at any time.

Our sweet and sour sauce is so simple to make that you'll never think to buy it from the store again.

Chicken wings are a perennial favourite, but can be messy to prepare at home. Our version is baked so the wings don't require deep frying or even an air-fryer! Just a hot oven can give you the same, satisfying­ly crisp skin as at the pub.

Seasoned with chili powder, garlic, onion and celery seed, these wings are also packed with flavour. If possible, try using panko (Japanese bread crumbs) for an extra-crispy crust.

Our stuffed tomatoes are a labour of love, but the end result is definitely worth it. Hollowed-out cherry tomatoes are filled with a creamy mixture of bacon, Parmesan cheese, green onion, celery and mayo, creating a flavour bomb with each tiny bite.
