Your Healthy Kitchen: A Choice of Appetizers to Impress Your Guests
It’s always a bit challenging to organize a party, perhaps to the same amount as it is interesting and exciting. One of the main things many people are concerned about is the food, as the buffet can either make or break any party. That is why many people tend to choose finger food and go with that – it’s extremely versatile, it doesn’t require any forks or spoons, and most importantly – there are so many different kinds of them that will make even the preparation process quite interesting. Take a look at the top artistic finger food that you should definitely consider for your next party:
Lemon and parmesan potato bites
Having refreshing lemon and super tasty parmesan in one is definitely one of the most exotic and interesting bites that a party can have. Most importantly, you don’t need a lot of ingredients for this one – slice a baguette, cover them with mashed potatoes (or baked ones if you want to), add parmesan and lemon. If you want a nicer look, you can pour oregano or basil and you’ll get that amazing mixture of yellowish and green. And the taste is simply amazing.
This finger food is perhaps one of the most popular and also extremely versatile. Namely, you can choose any type of cheese that you want, turn them into bite-sized cheese rolls and add whatever else you want to the mixture. If you want something autumnish, you can decorate it with certain kind of nuts, or with pears – the latter tastes just divine.
If you want to be very up-to-date, why not choose probably the most popular fruit of the decade – the avocado. This particular fruit is extremely healthy, but not only that. People tend to use it as a great substitute for a spread, and add something else to the mix. That’s why some of the best catering companies in NYC go with avocado toast almost any day. And to make matters even more important – it indeed tastes delicious, as you can put whatever you want on the healthy avocado spread.
Mini corn dogs
Lovers of junk food, behold the best junk finger food of today – the mini corn dog! Even though this will require a bit more time than other finger foods mostly because you have to prepare the corn dogs and deep-fry them, it’s always good to have something a la american on the buffet, but according to the New York Times, it can also be done in 25 minutes or so! Not only is it super tasty, it’s fun as well – just serve them with ketchup or mustard and a handful of french fries and there you go.
Each buffet needs to have something sweet, and if you’re not prepared to bake cakes or make muffins and cupcakes, you can always turn to sweet finger food, and the strawberry bruschetta might be the perfect option. First of all, it’s extremely refreshing, which means that it’s the perfect choice for any late spring/early summer party, and secondly, the diversity is simply great – go with cream, chocolate, other fruit or even cheese and you will have an extremely interesting bite.
Fig and cheese bruschetta
Speaking of bruschetta, there’s always the option of thinking outside of the box and mix a bit of sweet and salty. We recommend fig and cheese bruschetta, and even though it sounds a bit peculiar, the taste will win you over in no time. However, if you choose this, make sure to prepare the fig jam a couple of days before and store it in the fridge until you start preparing the bruschetta. It’s even better that way.
Lastly, (but definitely not the least), you simply have to have something pizza-related, right? If your answer is yes, then pizza sticks are the finger food you should go for. It’s extremely easy to make (well basically, you’ll be making a pizza and cutting it in shreds), and people love it – so you know it’s going to be a hit from the start.
As you can see, preparing the buffet for the next party doesn’t have to be difficult – it can get quite interesting if you simply put yourself into it, do a bit of research online and enjoy. If you love to cook, go for it, and even if you don’t, choose a catering company and make finger food the guest star of your next party!
