Small things need planning ahead of time if just to ensure that your preparations would go smoothly. It would be of no use if you had a quick easy appetizer recipe but do not have the ingredients on hand. Some make-ahead appetizer recipes need to be prepared a day before to stay in the fridge overnight. Thus to make a dinner even more special plan ahead. Decide now if you want to serve an appetizer that is hot or cold. Are you going to serve canapés cocktails spreads hors d oeuvres relishes dips or nibbles? Now the second tip is to raid your cupboards or refrigerators. This would allow you to monitor the availability of the ingredients you ll need to cook. Sometimes there is no longer any time to go to the grocery store. Adjust your recipes to what ingredients are available.
This is a key rule to follow when preparing food of any nature not just appetizers for a party. Try making your own hummus to serve with crispy pita wedges instead of buying the ready-made stuff. Or you could buy a couple of baguettes slice them open and stuff them with gourmet cheeses and deli meats bake them long enough to melt the cheese and then slice them into mini-sandwiches. These are just a couple of ideas but let your imagination take you where you want to go! Just remember that fresh is always best! 3. Ask! What are some of your guests favorite foods? This can help you get some ideas for your appetizers. Think about the people you re cooking for. Does anyone have food allergies diabetes or other dietary concerns? Are you focusing on a vegan vegetarian or carnivorous crowd? Most importantly you want to have something for everyone at the party so it never hurts to have a tray of fresh veggies or fruit for those who might have food allergies or dietary restrictions.
