Just remember these key rules when deciding what to make. 1. Presentation is everything. Coordinate your easy party appetizers with the party theme by using decorative platters and adding a little flair to your food. Think about the theme of your party. For example if you re throwing a Hawaiian-themed party you probably won t want to serve caviar or Italian-style appetizers. Try using recipes that have ingredients commonly found in native Hawaiian food. Use your imagination. Also remember that food only looks as good as the dish you re serving it on so choose platters in solid bold colors. And for a little extra fun stick the food with colorful toothpicks plastic swords or cocktail umbrellas (whatever goes with your theme). 2. Use simple fresh and quality ingredients.
Let s take a look at how to make your old favorites a bit more special: Cheese Dip - You can certainly make a simple little cheese dip that would be delicious but don t you want to make a dip that your guests will remember and talk about and ask you for the recipe? How about an Artichoke and Cheese dip? By adding some chopped artichoke hearts to your favorite cheese dip you ve perked this appetizer up enough to make it memorable. You can also add flavorful ingredients like Parmesan cheese Worcestershire sauce mustard and red pepper flakes to really kick this cheese dip up a few notches. Cook in your crockpot on low for about 2 hours and keep warm to serve with your crackers chips or bread. Cocktail Sausages - Think way beyond those little wienies and serve up an easy but fancy batch of sweet and tangy Apple Sausage Appetizers instead. Use any combination of ingredients such as brown sugar honey balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard then instead of adding Vienna Sausages cut up some good apple smoked sausage some tart apples like Granny Smith and some sweet onion and add that to the crockpot.
Start by making your favorite meatball recipe form the mini meatballs then brown them in a heavy skillet with cooking oil. Once they re brown put them in your crock pot. Mix together in a separate bowl a combination of ingredients starting with beer. Add any or all of the following ingredients to the beer - spicy tomato juice mustard horseradish Worcestershire sauce garlic onion hot sauce red pepper flakes or anything that sounds good to you. Pour this sauce over the meatballs in the crockpot turn the heat to low and let it cook for about 2 hours or a little more until you re sure the meatballs are cooked thoroughly. You won t find these meatballs on just any buffet! Nutty Snacks - I always think some pretty bowls of assorted nuts placed on tables around the room is a nice touch.
