Cobb loaf is just a round loaf of bread, its all in the way that mould it. Can be a bit tricky to get right first time. I find devils on horseback are always a hit and so simple to make. Pork mini meatballs with barkers plum sauce.

My recipe.

Fry chopped up bacon n onion mix thru a Tub of cream cheese (250gm), cup of best foods mayo, cup of grated tasty cheese, rip up some baby sspinach leaves. A good sprinkling of mixed herbs, a dadash of Worcester sauce. Once all that mixed together, put in middle of hollowed out Cobb loaf (or any big loaf of bread) and bake in the oven til hot and almost golden on top.

Always requested to take this when I go to parties.

This Ruth Pretty recipe is really good. And different.
Pork and mushroom canapés
10ml (2 tsp) olive oil
35g (1/4 small) onion (finely diced)
1 clove garlic (crushed)
120g pork mince
1 tbsp fresh breadcrumbs
1 egg (lightly beaten and you will only need about 1/3rd of it}
1 tsp finely chopped sage leaves
1/4 tsp finely chopped marjoram leaves
1/2 tsp finely chopped parsley leaves
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp finely grated peeled apple
1 tbsp finely grated peeled carrot
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp finely grated lemon zest
½ tsp flaky sea salt
pinch freshly ground black pepper
30 x 12g-14g button mushrooms (washed, dried and stalks removed)
35g {1/2 cup} finely grated Parmesan
additional flaky salt and freshly ground black pepper for seasoning
Lightly grease a low-sided baking tray with additional oil. Preheat oven to 180°C.Place oil into a small frypan set over a medium-hot heat. Add onion and cook for 3-4 minutes or until translucent and soft. Add garlic and cook for a further 1 minute or until soft. Cool.
Into a large bowl place pork mince, breadcrumbs, egg, sage, marjoram, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, apple, carrot, cumin, lemon zest, salt, pepper and cooled onion mixture. Mix to combine all ingredients (hands are best for this job). Using hands form pork mixture into 30 little balls.· Push a ball into a prepared mushroom and gently squash it down to fill button mushroom. Continue to fill all mushrooms. Lightly sprinkle each mushroom with Parmesan. Place mushrooms on to prepared tray. Cover and refrigerate for up to one day or proceed to bake. Place stuffed mushrooms in to preheated oven and cook for 12-15 minutes or until meat juices run clear when a metal skewer is inserted and mushrooms are tender.Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes at room temperature. Season with salt and pepper and platter to serve.

Cheeses. Veges and hummus. Sliced cold meats, buy some Brie in a box, poke holes in the top, rub gently with garlic and sprinkle with thyme. Drizzle a little olive oil over. Bake for 40 minutes. Serve with the veges or crispy bread. Or for something a bit sweet buy the cheese and sprinkle with brown sugar and a bit of butter and then bake. Keep it simple and have food that can sit for a while.
