Holiday Dinner Party Menu Day 2: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

19 Dec

The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo by Stieg Larrson

No, this novel isn’t a sweet, heartwarming Christmas tale; but you can compile and eat a sweet holiday meal out of this bestseller!

Appetizers
There are not a whole lot of appetizers to work with on first glance; but I think it could be a neat idea to use the sandwhiches that are mentioned throughout the novel as hors d’oeuvres. Bite sized creations based on crostini instead of sliced bread. What do you think? I think this would work especially well for a rye crostini topped with a thin slice of hardboiled egg, cheese and a small spoonful of caviar. Decadent!
