Do you want to host a cocktail party for a few friends or family members but don’t know where to start when it comes to preparing the food? If this is the case, take a look at the ideas below to help give you an idea of what you can provide for your guests.
#1 – Pulled Pork and Biscuits
Preparing mini biscuits and sandwiching pulled pork in between two halves makes for a delicious cocktail appetizer that is just the right size. Shredded red cabbage and carrots can be added to the pulled pork to bulk up the filling a little and a sprinkle of grated cheese will add the right finishing touch.
#2 – Steak Squares
Cutting a thick slice of rump or sirloin steak into mini squares of approximately 1x1 inch and placing cocktail sticks into them will provide anywhere from a dozen to approximately 20 servings. Using 1000 Island sauce or a creamy pepper and mushroom sauce for dipping will ensure that none are left after the party is over.
#3 – Pea and Feta Crostini
A baguette cut into multiple slices and topped with a combination of ground peas, feta cheese and fresh mint will provide up to a dozen portions of crostini. It is best to place the topping on the crostini as soon as possible before serving to prevent them from becoming soggy.
#4 – Crumbed Chicken Fingers with Crudités and Dip
Chicken breasts cut into strips, rolled in a combination of breadcrumbs and crushed corn flake cereal and served with a range of veggie crudités and blue cheese dip are always a hit. Popular options for crudités include baby carrots, beans or small radishes cut in half.
