Happy Appies Aboard The Minnie Gump Bugger V
Pretty amazing what can be done in this SPACIOUS galley!
Here are a few quick and easy recipes from my mom who lives aboard her 38ft Pearson Minnie Gump Bugger V. She and my Dad enjoy entertaining aboard on a moments notice while they spend their summers in Long Beach Island at the Jersey shore.

MTP (More Than Pretzels)

Crush 3 cups PRETZELS.  Melt ¾ stick of BUTTER, 1/3 CUP sugar.  Add Pretzels.  Spread in jellyroll pan .  Bake @ 450o for 6 minutes.  Break up into crumbs while warm.  Cool & Store.  Cream together 8 oz. CREAM CHEESE, 1/3 cup SUGAR.  Add 1 18oz. Can CRUSHED PINEAPPLE.  Mix by hand.  Fold in 8 oz. COOL WHIP.  Just before you are ready to serve, add pretzels and stir.  Scoop it up with crackers and wait for the smiles.



In a bowl, combine 1 cup MAYO, 1 cup chopped SWEET ONION, 1 tbs grated PARMESAN CHEESE and 1/4 tsp GARLIC SALT; stir in 1 cup (4oz) shredded SWISS CHEESE.  Spoon into a 1-qt baking dish.  Bake, uncovered at 325o for 40 minutes.  Sprinkle with parsley for a little zip.  Serve with crackers.



Take 6 or 8 slices of bacon, cooked until crisp.  Break into small pieces.  Combine 4 cans chopped or minced CLAMS, drained, 1 cup chopped ONIONS, 2 cloves of GARLIC, minced, 1/3 cup chopped GREEN PEPPER, 1 tsp. (or more) HOT SAUCE, 1 sleeve SALTED CRACKERS crushed into small pieces and ½ cup melted BUTTER (or margarine) into a shallow casserole dish and bake for 25 to 30 minutes in a 350o oven.  Serve on your favorite crackers.



Dry off KOSHER DILLS WHOLE. Smear 1 (8oz) softened CREAM CHEESE onto 5-6 pickles.  Roll in rectangular ham slice and slice the KOSHER KWICKIE into bite sized medallions. Yummy, pretty, fast and EASY.
