A holiday party is not complete without a table of eats for everyone to graze. There is always a main mealtime and dessert, but don’t forget about the finger foods that people can enjoy as they socialize. Here are some fun and festive ideas to try this year.
Festive Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs at the holidays are a must-have item, and they are timeless and easy to prepare. Consider adding a few drops of food coloring in your egg mixture for a more festive approach.
Start small because the yellow color of the yolk will have an opinion if you add too much color. You don’t want an unappetizing color.
Something for everyone to enjoy is little bruschetta bites. With a small piece of French bread or even a cracker, you can top it with your blend of tomato and mozzarella. Drizzle a layer of balsamic glaze over the tray for a sweeter kick.
Reindeer Cheese Balls
You can serve the famous cheese ball in bite-sized portions with reindeer cheese balls for a special Christmas touch. Also, you can pair these with crackers on the side or pretzels as antlers. These are the perfect finger food for gatherings with little hands in attendance as the reindeer appeal goes over well with children.
A prime finger food to serve at a holiday party is a shrimp cocktail. But for a unique way to use up a jar of salsa, consider a twist on the cocktail sauce with salsa rather than horseradish sauce. This will give guests an exciting way to enjoy something they already know and love.
Bacon-Wrapped Pork Bites
Confirm that the crowd will appreciate a bite of meaty goodness, but a bacon-wrapped pork bite is easy to prepare and even easier to serve. Cut your pork into bite-sized cubes, and with half a piece of bacon, wrap it around and pop them in the oven.
Use a meat thermometer to ensure the pork cooks thoroughly. Stick a toothpick through the center so guests can grab and go.
With these suggestions of prime finger foods to serve at a holiday party, your guests should not leave hungry. What’s important to remember isn’t the work it takes to prepare, but the fun your guests will have with nice and delicious touches.
