Cucumber Cup Appetizers


  • English cucumber (or any cucumber) cut into roughly 1 1/2 inch pieces crosswise.

  • About 4 tablespoons of dried onions

  • Chopped chives, 1 – 2 teaspoons plus more for garnish

  • About 2 tablespoons sour cream

  • Bacon pieces

  • Granulated garlic or fresh garlic, to taste

  • salt, to taste

Scoop out the center of the cucumber cups for the filling using a melon baller. Make sure your cucumber pieces are big enough to leave a base for the cups after you scoop most of the meat out.

For the filling: Combine the caramelized onions with the sour cream and chives in a bowl.  Start with just a little until you have the right onion to sour cream ratio you prefer.  Season to taste with garlic and salt.

Spoon the filling into the cucumber cups, top with bacon pieces.  These are best chilled a bit for serving.
