Finger Foods That Everyone Will Love
A great party is full of good music, excellent entertainment and great tasting food. From sit down dinners to banquets and buffets, the food you serve at your next event will help to make it the best one yet.
Our inflatables add fun and excitement to parties, fairs and festivals throughout South Florida, but it’s the personal touches you add with your food that really brings the flavor.
Think beyond plain old burgers and pizza and add some sparkle to your holiday finger food this holiday season. Stuck for inspiration? Try these ideas for size:
Pastry Pigs with Cheese and Cider Dipping Sauce
For a modern twist on pigs in blankets, try wrapping cocktail franks in pretzel dough and baking in the oven, before mixing up a simple white sauce with tangy cheddar and sharp cider for a delicious contrast of flavors.
Egg Buffet Bites
Boiled eggs are a great base for easy canapés and finger foods. For the festive season, go for a different take on the classic deviled egg recipe, and add flavorful toppings instead of mayonnaise. Try salmon and dill leaves, or bacon and green onion for an easy, tasty, festive feast.
Super easy to make, and just as easy to devour, Bruschetta is a classic Italian finger food that works well all year round. The key to a great bruschetta is the wonderful combination of flavors. Rub garlic on the bread itself, before topping with the freshest, juiciest tomatoes, basil and olive oil. Grill before serving for a simple, tasty snack that makes a welcome change from stodgy pizza.
Ham and Cheese Sliders
An easy alternative to burgers, these sliders are perfect for kids and adults and are easy to eat with a drink in one hand, and a plate in the other. Make tiny layered sandwiches using freshly baked bread or brioche and fill them with layers of good quality cheese and delicately flavored ham. Grill for just a few moments to make the bread soft, and the cheese gooey.
Turkey and Cranberry Sliders
Just like above, these sliders are easy to eat and simple to make. Use good quality cold cuts, or cook your bird from fresh, and layer a good size dollop of cranberry sauce on fresh white bread or brioche to make delicious, mini festive sandwich bites.
Savory Christmas Trees
Using salami and cheese layered between store brought puff pastry, simply fold the strips of dough accordion style and place on a skewer. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or so and add a green olive to top off your tree.
Meatballs on cocktail sticks make the most awesome finger foods. Go for a more grown-up variation on the theme by letting the meatballs simmer in sugar, ketchup, lemon juice and bourbon whiskey to make them melt-in-the-mouth delicious. Place them on a cocktail stick and serve hot.
Pastries, pretzels, sandwiches, salads, crackers, cookies, cakes and candies are also great ways to stave off hunger as you and your guests enjoy a holiday party this Christmas.
