Dolores Triantafillou of Carrboro shared this recipe for zucchini appetizers.
Triantafillou received this recipe from a friend, Jean Tobey, in Claremont, N.H. Tobey had served them at a house party in the 1970s, and they were so delicious that Triantafillou asked for the recipe.
“Since then, and a move to North Carolina in 1989, I’ve been taking it to birthday parties and other get-togethers,” she wrote. “Many friends have requested the recipe. ... I really love sharing it because they’re easy to make, and the look on people’s faces when they taste the appetizers is fun to observe.”
