Finger food is a terrific addition to any birthday party. Not only are most finger foods delicious, but they allow people to grab what they want and then mingle with the rest of the partygoers, returning to snack some more when they feel hungry. This keeps the party moving and also provides great food to the guests. If you want to supply some delicious snacks to birthday party guests, consider these finger food ideas.
Sandwiches are some of the easiest finger foods to make, but large sandwiches result in spills and dropped food, especially at a kids’ birthday party. You can reduce this risk by using smaller portions of bread – cutting standard breads into quarters or using hot dog buns or biscuits in place of normal sandwich bread. Chicken, egg, or tuna salad work especially well in filling these sandwiches out and making for an easy too hold and very delicious snack.
French Toast Finger Sandwiches
You can add a new dimension to your sandwiches by dipping your bread into a mixture of eggs, milk, and lemon zest, turning it into French toast. After that, cut the bread into thirds and fry with butter over medium heat for about two minutes per side. You can add confectionary sugar, maple syrup, or other toppings as desired and fill the sandwiches with any sort of filling your guests might enjoy.
Pizza is always a favorite dish, and pita bread can be used to make bite-sized snacks that catch all the appeal of normal pizza. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the pitas on the baking sheet and add cheese, veggies, and other pizza toppings as you see fit. Cook in the oven for about 10 minutes and then cut the pitas into quarters. For a slight variation, fill the pita with toppings and then add cheese on top.
Finger food is a great way of adding convenience to your party, so guests can grab what they like and move on. These recipes are a good way to provide variety and snacks that your guests will take notice of.
