I'm doing a finger buffet for a birthday party next week and I just wondered what everybody else usually includes? Mine will have pizza, sausage rolls, sausages on sticks, crisps, assorted sandwiches, salad, spicy risotto, tuna cous cous, sweets, drinks and of course the cake
Don't forget cheese and pineapple on a stick - very retro!
Stuff like mini samosas and stuffed jalapenos always go down well too.
Depends who it is for.
If it's for a kids party, I tend to do :
cocktail sausages and cheese on sticks
crisps (various types)
sandwiches (various types) cut into triangles
mini scotch eggs
If it's an adult party I do :
a large tureen of bolognese, with nachos, so people can get a bowl of bolognese for themselves and dip nachos in
nibbly crackery things like prezels, ritz biscuits, stuff like that
houmous (various types) and carrot sticks
chicken drumsticks / bbq chicken drumsticks
Cocktail sausages, cheese and pineapple on sticks, onion bahjis, samosas, cold chicken nuggets, small chicken tikka chunks, chicken legs, bowls of crisps, ham sandwiches, breadsticks, mini pasties, mini sausage rolls, pink wafer biscuits, small bowls of Haribo starmix, mini cupcakes. Om nom!
Thanks all. Some good suggestions there that I hadn't thought of yet
it's for adults btw.
All of the above but always a cold chicken nugget / goujon. Tuna and cucumber sandwiches. Crisps and dips.
Loads of cakes / buns / biscuits
Chicken drumsticks- herb and jerk
TRIFLE- epicly large trifle mind
Nachos & Dips & cheese straws
Sarnies: cheese, tuna& cucumber, etc etc
MACARONI- a massive traybake of it
Samosas & bhajis
cocktail cheese & pineapple
chapati/roti curry breads
Then the usual: sweets,cupcakes, chocs, vodka jellies etc
It's weird because my family has parties mainly with the trifles,quiches , dips etc, my best friend's west indian family has the chicken,macaroni,rice,curry goat etc and my other good friend has the whole rice, bhaji/samosa, dhaal kinda thing.
I guess I have a bit of a **** mix at parties but food is good. I enjoy when people eat well and drink well.
