Need Finger Food Idea
My son is getting baptized next month. We need to bring finger food to church for a small gathering after service. I am stumped because we are limited by these criteria:
- preferred to be prepared/finished the day before since we need to leave the house for church at around 10 am
- no reheating preferred as our church has limited facilities
There will be about 60 people in attendance.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
Pinwheels would be one perfect suggestion...you make them and roll them the night before and then slice them down just before serving. Millions of great recipes out there...I always use the hiddenvalleyranch.com recipe if you need a quick reference. Deviled eggs would be easy to make the night before also.
How about chocolate covered strawberries? You can do both white, milk, and dark chocolate. It's cool enough that you can keep. Just keep it in the cooler. Make it the night before and then refrigerate it.
So many options
Thin deli sliced salami or other cold cut simply folded in half & half again & toothpicked (fills up hungry people & no crumbs)
All those cheesey quiche Bisquick appetizers that can be cut in small squares (they come to room temp while the ceremony occurs amd are room temp when eaten)
Small finger sandwiches like deviled ham
I am assuming you do not want dips and crackers that require table set up and end up with people grouping around a food table.The types of foods I listed avoid crumbs, are fine room temp and won;t get soggy and are filling.
A tray of fresh veggies with a sour cream dip plus a fruit tray with a sweet dip would be easy. A tray of various cheeses and meats with small rolls already sliced along with mustard, etc.
