Miniature party food (quail eggs, etc)

Does anyone have ideas for tapas-like foods that incorporate tiny versions of larger foods?

ie: baby carrots, mini bagels, etc.

thanks in advance!

      1. Little albondigas. I've done "deviled" quail eggs - with truffle oil ....a pain to peel ....but v. cute.

          For future reference: Soak boiled quail eggs in vinegar for a while before peeling. How long is a while? I dunno really, I've always just done it until most of their color floated off.
          This makes them easier to peel. Yum!

            Quail eggs: once you get them peeled: Lay several side by side on two bamboo skewers. Then lay two more skewers on top. Then take a few rubber bands and clamp the skewers down, to press the egg white surface for several hours. This will add a two-lined ridge texture that people will notice. It gets lost on the bulk of chicken eggs.

        2. any regular quiche, tart or muffin can be baked in those mini-muffin tins. you can also use round cutters to cut bread or pastry dough into small rounds.

          1. you can also make mini pizzas
