Ladies who Lunch

Open Houses don’t always get the desired traffic we wish they would, especially if they aren’t a million dollar property or on waterfront. So, how does a broker get some interested parties into a home they are trying to sell? A Broker Luncheon!

We all know that most folks who come to Open Houses are just looky-loos or curiousity seekers. Very rarely do real, qualified buyers come through the door and make an offer (like we see on television). However, if you get brokers inside, who have bevvies of buyers, you have a better chance of getting that house to the people who are ready, willing and able to buy. And to do that, you need to feed them.

I find that serving homemade food (and advertising it as such) is a special treat in this fast food society. Here are a few of my favorite recipes that have always been crowd pleasers.

Spinach Dip Recipe

I’ve always made the spinach dip on the back of the Knorr’s soup box, but this one is nice, too. It has a tangier taste, and I’m more likely to have the ingredients for this at home.

2¼ hours | 10 min prep

SERVES 8

1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 (1 ounce) envelope ranch dressing mix
1 (10 ounce) package of chopped spinach, thawed and drained well

Mix all ingredients and chill.

Aioli Beef Roll-ups Recipe
My crew loves these delicious roll-ups that sound fancy, but are so very easy. Aioli is basically mayo and garlic, how hard is that? The original recipe comes from CD kitchen.

2¼ hours | 10 min prep

SERVES 24

1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 10-inch flour tortillas
1 cup fresh spinach
1/4 lb cooked roast beef, thinly sliced or sliced cooked turkey
6 slices cheddar cheese
1 medium tomato, thinly sliced

Mix mayonnaise and garlic in small bowl.
Spread mixture evenly over tortillas.
Top tortillas with layers of spinach, beef, cheese and tomato; roll up tightly.
Cut each tortilla into 12 pieces; secure with toothpicks.
Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving time.
Do-Ahead: Wrap tortilla rolls individually in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
Substitution: In place of the roast beef, you can use sliced cooked turkey.
