What would be perfect on a New Orlean's relish tray along with pickled okra? It needs to be make ahead.

We are having a Mardi Gras (a bit late I know) murder mystery dinner party on April 1st. The appetizers need to be Southern appropriate and make ahead.

Pimiento Cheese, of course! Ok, not a relish, but I can't think Southern without it :)

Boudin-style sausage is a classic - perhaps small meatballs of boudin style sausage (ground pork cut with rice, cajun spices, green pepper), cocktail sized would be good, along with giardinara - the quick pickled carrot, olive and cauliflower condiment commonly used on muffaletta sandwiches. I make the version in my recipe here (minus the cabbage for the condiment alone) - I also add banana pepper and pimento stuffed green olives when making it a stand alone vegetable: https://food52.com/recipes.... This is even better made ahead. If you don't want to spend the time on meatballs, this giardinara would also be great with a muffaletta inspired deli tray with Genoa salami, mortadella, Southern ham, and provolone cheese. Cafe Brulot makes a great after dinner drink as well https://food52.com/recipes.... Sounds like a great party idea!

To sexyLAMBCHOPx -
Voodoo Garlic bread...my own creation and is named for double garlic.
I don't have amounts but the goal was a layerd garlic without frying everyone's tastebuds, it really is good, melty garlic, then the freshness of the top layer.
Finely chop lots of elephant garlic and blanch for 2-3 minutes, drain.
Add lots of chopped fresh parsley and finely grated lemon peel, set aside.
On low, melt butter in a sauce pan, add a lot of mircoplaned elephant garlic, red pepper flakes (no seeds), black pepper, simmer about 10 minutes.
Chill a bit, add some fresh grated parmesan.
Spread over sweet french bread halves.
Bake in 350 oven for 10 minutes.
Then heavily sprinkle over the top the garlic/parsley/lemon mixture and broil till the edge of the bread begins to brown.
Sprinkle with fresh parmesan and serve.
Everything turned out wonderful, used Paul Prudhomme's chicken and smoked sausage recipe.
