Antipasto/first course help needed

ttoommyy | Jan 30, 2012 06:29 AM

I'm having a small dinner party in a couple of weeks. The menu is about 90% set but I am having trouble with the first course. I always serve a mix of 3 small bites for my first course. This time it is going to be a 2" round of Piemontese beef crudo drizzled with with extra virgin olive oil, a homemade giardiniera and...that's where I need help. I originally had planned a parmigiano sformato, but I cannot find a recipe I like and besides, they all call for the sformato to be made in 6-oz. ramekins, which I think is a bit too much for the plate I am composing. I already have a meat and a vegetable so I was hoping to do something in the cheese/dairy family that I can prep and optimally make ahead. Any suggestions? Thanks.
