4 ounces plain goat cheese
1 teaspoon wasabi paste (or to taste)
Mix together the potato, eggs, onion, flour, salt and pepper.
Heat a generous layer of oil in a large heavy saute pan over medium high heat. Drop tablespoonfuls of the potato mixture to create small pancakes and turn when brown to brown both sides and crisp the edges.
Drain to paper towel. Keep warm.
Mix the goat cheese and wasabi paste and distribute among pancakes.
Garnish with a thin slice of apple. Makes about 24 appetizers.
Deviled Egg and Ham Snowmen
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 dash hot sauce or to taste
Dash sweet paprika

Hard boil the eggs. Cool and peel.
Cut a small portion off the top of each egg just low enough to expose the yolk. Save the egg tops and bottoms.
Place the yolks in a bowl with the mayonnaise and hot sauce and blend together. Place in a pastry bag and pipe into the bottom of the eggs.
Top each with the egg tops exposing some of the filling. Use a piece of carrot for the nose. Makes 12 appetizers
