Culinary gems from the 1970s

Inspired by Rose Red's posting Fifties Flashback, I thought I'd share a gem handed down from my mother in law. Does anyone know what these are called?

It formed the centre piece for a friend's Don's Party Party on November 22 2007. The kidlets at the party thought the green pickled onions where lollies. You can imagine the looks on their faces after popping an onion in their mouths....

My daughter used to *love* cocktail onions when she was little, like around 2! If we went anywhere where they were out, she'd devour the whole plate. Weird kid ;)

I think they are called Hedgehogs!

I suddenly feel the need to create one myself. I'd never heard of them before RoseRed's post. Obviously, I've been living under a rock.

Hilarious! I used to collect 1950s recipe pamphlets, and this reminded me of those. And you've seen the Gallery of Regrettable Food, yes?


P.S. Hey, thanks for visiting my blog, and taking the time to leave a comment.

No idea but here's one I prepared

I thought hedgehogs are the meatballs with long grain rice that pops out when you boil them.
