Freezable wine friendly hors ideas please!

Short story: please share your ideas for Hors d'oevres that can go from freezer to oven to table and go well with wine. Not necesarily full blown recipes, just a name, an idea, a list of ingredients...thanks so much in advance.

Longer story: this is for a charity auction for my daughter's preschool. I am donating a Wisconsin wine tasting for 8 (we live in WI, that's why). The item will be wines with tasting notes and frozen hors d'oevres. Plus some cute plates and such. I want the host to be able to just pop them in the oven, or even just thaw them, put them on a plate and that's it. So far most of my ideas involve a crust so I'm especially interested in non bready/crusty stuff. And I'd like to use local ingredients. So far I'm leaning towards Smoked turkey, apple and cheddar empanadas, Blue Cheese gougeres, Roasted butternut squash pizette, Hot-smoked salmon and cream cheese tartlettes, and for sweets chocolate cherry cookies and caramelized pear struedels. I'm not sure I need more but I feel like these should be tweaked or changed. Thanks a lot.

  1. I've done spanakopita, meatballs, and carmelized onion tartlets. A friend made blue cheese & fennel dip that was unbelievable recently.
