Maggie’s and Jiggs’

Those favorite American-Irish cartoon characters, Maggie and Jiggs, would both be happy with the Irish Shillelagh; Maggie, because it is sufficiently garnished with fruits to make it look genteel and innocuous; Jiggs, because it is sufficiently loaded with whiskey to make it worth the effort of lifting to the lips. Maggie’s and Jiggs’ canap├ęs have something for everyone too.

Maggie’s

White sandwich bread
Cream cheese
Red caviar
Black caviar
Finely chopped parsley

Cut sandwich bread into ovals, crescents, or rounds; spread generously with cream cheese and top half of sandwich with red caviar, half with black; form thin parsley border around edges of bread.

Jiggs’

Pumpernickel bread
Prepared mustard
Cooked red cabbage (see below)
Corned beef, thinly sliced or cut into 2-inch squares if using canned

Cut pumpernickel bread into 2-inch slices and spread with mustard. Spoon on cooked cabbage and top with corned beef; top with additional dollop of mustard.

Cooked red cabbage: Finely grated 1 quarter head red cabbage, as if for cole slaw; place in saucepan with lightly salted water and bring to boil; cook slowly 10 minutes; drain and chill.
